Pools Require Chemicals
Processes of disinfection, oxidation, and pH control are the most common chemical requirements that necessitate a feeder. Aquasol’s list of feeders fall into four groups with the capability of handling: 1) liquid chemicals, 2) dry chemicals.
The most commonly used type of chlorine in the world is probably liquid chlorine (Sodium Hypochlorite). This chlorine is used on commercial pools that require a large amount of chlorine to maintain a safe sanitation level. Liquid chlorinators are usually mounted over a vat filled with liquid chlorine, and have their own small electrical pump which moves liquid chlorine from the vat into the pool’s plumbing by way of an injector. The most common type of liquid feeders are the peristaltic and diaphragm pumps. Aquasol stocks a complete line of both.
Erosion feed systems were first developed to handle tricolor and stick bromine. Aquasol stocks a line of erosion feeders which are installed at the filter system and requires a certain amount of pressure supplied by the circulation system to dissolve the chlorine or bromine tablet of stick.
