The smell of chlorine in the pools of fitness clubs or health centers is a rather common situation, because disinfection in these institutions always pay special attention.
But what if you own a private suburban pool? Surely you do not want at all that outdoor recreation was accompanied by similar aromas, not to mention the fact that for many chlorine causes an allergic reaction and skin diseases. Nowadays, there are many tools for disinfecting water in the pool, which easily kill bacteria and are very budgetary. One of such means is hydrogen peroxide, which we will talk about in today's article.
Perhydrol is a clear, odorless, color liquid that is supplied in plastic cans of various sizes. When interacting with water, it releases active oxygen, which kills any bacteria, including pathogens, thus, deep cleaning and disinfection occurs.
When working with any chemicals, certain safety precautions should be followed. Hands should be protected with gloves and eyes with glasses. If the peroxide gets into exposed skin, it is necessary to wash off the substance with plenty of cool water. In case of signs of a chemical burn, be sure to consult a doctor.
The method of using hydrogen peroxide to clean the pool
- Calculate the required amount of peroxide (at least 700 ml per 1 cubic meter of water). In case of severe contamination, double the amount of substance.
- Clean the pool of excess debris - all fallen leaves and branches floating on the surface must be removed. If possible, turn on the filter so that the peroxide mixes faster with water.
- Pour the product into the pool.
- the cleaning result remains for a long time (up to two months);
- no unpleasant odor, completely transparent;
- in addition to disinfection, peroxide copes with the removal of a greenish tint of water;
- does not require special skills and the presence of a specialist;
- when used correctly, it does not harm health and does not cause skin diseases;
- there is no effect on the acid-base balance of water;
- accessibility - unlike many special advertised cleaning agents, peroxide is supplied at a low cost.
- Peroxide cannot be used for water purification, the temperature of which exceeds 27–28 ° C, because in this case the effectiveness of the method is significantly reduced;
- after the disinfection procedure in the pool, you can not bathe for quite a long time to avoid possible chemical burns (at least 12 hours until the product is completely dissolved).
