Why Ultraviolet (UV) Pool Sanitisation

Ultraviolet (UV) light has been used for many years to sanitise water in a variety of applications, including swimming pools.
Ultraviolet (UV) light is a type of electromagnetic radiation with a shorter wavelength than visible light. A UV pool sanitisation systems work by passing the water through the filter first to remove particles and then over a UV lamp, which emits UV light that kills microorganisms as they pass through it.
The use of UV light for sanitisation dates back to the early 20th century when it was first used to kill microorganisms in drinking water. Over time, the use of UV light for pool sanitisation has become more widespread, as it has been found to be a natural, effective and efficient method of killing harmful microorganisms in pool water.
UV pool sanitisation systems can help to improve water quality and clarity, reduce the need for chlorine, and provide a chemical-free method of pool sanitisation.
UV pool sanitisation is both a cost and energy-efficient way to keep your pool pristine without relying on the use of any potentially dangerous chemicals. This method has become increasingly popular as people become more aware of the potentially harmful effects of using harsh chemicals in their pool water, such as chlorine. UV sanitisation works by passing the pool water through powerful ultraviolet (UV) lamps which cleanse the water by destroying bacteria, viruses, and algae that can cause unsafe conditions in your pool. Aside from being chemical-free, another benefit of this system is that it requires minimal upkeep.
With the ever-increasing varieties of bacteria and viruses, it’s no surprise that allergies, sensitivities, and illnesses have also been on the rise in recent years. Fortunately, researchers have now discovered a simple solution to keep ourselves healthier: harnessing the power of UV rays. Ultraviolet light has the ability to kill off viruses and bacteria before they can reach us, making it an excellent weapon for those with allergies or sensitivities. By using a UV light system in our pools, we can proactively reduce our exposure to unpleasant microorganisms and improve both our physical and psychological health.
UV sanitisation is one of the most effective methods for killing harmful microorganisms. In comparison to chlorine, UV sanitisation offers unlimited advantages, with no dangerous by-products or residuals produced after treatment. Not only do ultraviolet (UV) rays have a higher efficacy when it comes to sterilising water, but they also eliminate 99.9% of harmful pathogens, ranging from bacteria and viruses to protozoa and cysts, in just a few seconds.
The feel of pool water on the skin can be an important factor when deciding to swim. Imagine stepping into a refreshing pool and noticing how soft the water glides over your skin. Thanks to UV technology, this pleasant feeling is available in our pools. With UV-treated pool water, you can feel relaxed and safe knowing you’re enjoying clean and softened water in your plunge pool!
Taking care of your swimming pool is a lot like taking care of your car – regular maintenance is key. UV sanitisation is an important part of that maintenance; not only does it rid the pool water of potentially dangerous microorganisms, but it also helps to extend the lifespan of your pool. UV sanitisation reduces the regular maintenance time and the need for other chemicals and treatment methods.

For a pool without harsh chemicals, the WEST COAST Plunge Pools paired with our UV pool sanitisation is the ideal solution. UV rays are incredibly effective in killing bacteria and viruses, making it perfect for those with allergies or sensitivities, while the Stainless Steel shell naturally prevents algae from forming in the first place.
