As the demand for safe and freshwater is consistently rising, owing to satisfy the human needs and to support the industrial activities. With the increasing urbanization and economic development, the current water supply is unlikely to satisfy the ever-growing demands. Since, the chemical industry uses innovative ways of water treatment in order to make water acceptable for end-use, like drinking, cooking, irrigation, and industrial purpose to name a few. Four basic processes are used by water treatment methods which include boiler water treatment, cooling water treatment, water purification and treatment of wastewater effluent. The substances which are removed during the water treatment process are suspended solids, viruses, fungi, bacteria, algae, and minerals. The process involves both physical and chemical methods. The chemical used in this process is called water treatment chemicals. Algaecide is a chemical treatment designed to kill and prevent algae growth. While chlorine can help discourse algae growth, other factors including water temperature, sunlight, pH and mineral content can encourage algae growth. Rain, debris and even swimmers can introduce algae to pool water. With algaecides, algae growth can be kept at bay.
Calcium hypochlorite is a white solid which is added in granular or tablet form to pool water to kill germs that can make swimmers sick. Used properly by well-trained pool operators, this compound destroys germs that are capable of causing numerous health problems for pool users - diarrhea, swimmer's ear (a nasty earache) and various respiratory, skin and wound infections. Spa and hot tub waters are also disinfected with calcium hypochlorite--it's a chemical wonder that makes healthful water recreation possible.
When the pH of a pool is balanced and the chemicals are at the correct levels, cloudy water may be due to the extremely small particles passing through the filtering system. In situations like this, a flocculent may get helpful in clearing up the water.
Pool acid is a liquid product that is designed to decrease pH and total alkalinity levels in pool water. It prevents cloudy water, scale formation, and high acid demand. This acid is extremely beneficial for lowering the pH and total alkalinity in swimming pools and leaves behind no residue hydrochloric (Muriatic) acid. It is characterized by benefits like - Fast-acting pH reduction, Effective Total Alkalinity reduction, Consistent high quality, Easy to apply and Low cost.
Sodium hypochlorite is a compound that can be effectively used for water purification, bleaching, odor removal, and water disinfection.
