Swimming pool disinfection?

I’m doing a research in college to find a method safer then chlorine to disinfect a swimming pool. Chlorine reacts with organic products to make chloramines while other popular methods found don`t seem as effective without the use of chlorine.

I have found some sites, such as azurwater.com, claiming that electroperoxydation does not use any chemical and there is no direct or indirect pollution involved. The concept is patented in France and could be applied to swimming pools as well as anytime you want to disinfect water. But I wonder if the titane electrode used is stable and the ions OH- and the hydrogen peroxyde (H2O2) produced, both helping for a lasting disinfection power, could have reverse effects on us, humans.

Explanations and sites are all welcome!

A few points:
-Chlorine is used for pools yes, but Bromine are also popular, and I see some lithium products being sold… you should look at an on line pool store to see what is currently available.
– The electro..what ever, is just another way to kill bacteria.. perhaps it could work, what is the amount of the H2O2 that will be created? when you add that to pool water (assume a 40,000 gallon pool) what is the concentration? is that enough to harm humans?… well if this machine constantly kicks out the H2o2 then the pool will (eventually) become a pool of Hydrogen Peroxide, and everyone will have blond hair.. so you will have to remove the peroxide somehow..(see if the french found a way to do that… they all seem to still have dark hair) you probably have to add another chemical, or change the water so often…

So how else could you remove bacteria from a pool? … Find out how you kill bacteria from other places, and see if you can apply that technology to pools… (extreme heat and UV come to mind)

If no pool shock, what else will help?

I have an above ground pool that holds about 6000 gallons of water. Im having problems with my car and I live in teh country so I have a problem getting to the store for chemicals. I just cleaned and filled my pool and just as I was filling it the rain started coming down hard and now its already green. Is there anything that I can buy at the local grocery store or hardware store that can help?

Can I put non-chlorine bleach in it? Will that help and is it safe? (bleach for clothes) Any advice would be great. Especailly since my biggest problem is green water! every 3 days or so it starts turning green. Then when I do get to shock it, the water turns cloudy white or blueish white.

so again big question..Can I put bleach (for the laundry) in my pool?

Yes you can and it’s perfectly safe. I’m sorry that David answered the question as he did because baking soda is a perfectly fine chemical to use for increasing the alkalinity of the pool. In fact it’s the exact same thing that the pool store sells, except the baking soda is purer and far less expensive.

1 gallon of household bleach (non scented) will add approximately 8ppm of chlorine to your pool. Depending on the levels of the other chemistry in the water (alkalinity, hardness, pH) you may need to add more. I would recommend going with a gallon and a half first thing in 6,000 gallons of algae laden water.

When you can take a sample of pool water to your local pool store and have them test for the following:
Total chlorine
Free chlorine
Combined chlorine
pH
Alkalinity
Hardness
Cyanuric acid
Total dissolved solids
Metals
Phosphates

Bring the results back without purchasing anything from them at this time and send me the results at robandliz1992@yahoo.com and I’ll put you on a maintenance schedule tailored for your pool that will keep it pristine for the rest of the season.

But for now, go ahead and add in the gallon and a half of bleach while the filter is running. Brush the sides and bottom of the pool if you have a pool brush, if not don’t worry about it. This chlorine addition is an emergency measure only and will burn out of the pool in less than 24 hours so you will need to add more tonight.

Biology help Please…..?? Ten Points!?

1. What might result from the body not receiving enough sunlight to make vitamin D?
A. The liver will not function normally.
B. Bones do not develop properly, or they break easily.
C. Calcium and phosphorus build up in the blood.
D. Kidney function decreases.

2. How is the muscular system involved in thermoregulation?
A. The heart muscle beats faster to warm the body.
B. Muscles are needed to release the hormones that increase metabolism.
C. If the body gets too cold, muscles cause shivering, which warms the body.
D. Muscles open skin pores so heat can enter the body.

3. Which type of diabetes is correctly paired with its cause?
A. Type 1 diabetes – immune system destroys the alpha cells’ ability to make insulin
B. Type 1 diabetes – glucagon production decreases
C. Type 1 diabetes – immune system destroys the beta cells’ ability to make insulin
D. Type 2 diabetes – beta cells can no longer produce glucagon

Vitamin D aids in the absorption of calcium, so the correct answer to #1 would be B. Thermoregulation attempts to bring the body back to a set temperature – when it is cold, shivering generates heat, warming the body, answer C. Type 1 diabetes is caused when the immune system destroys the beta cells’ ability to produce insulin, answer C.

CCNA Exam Update. Please HELP?

Hi

I am appearing for my CCNA exam on 21st. I read somewhere in a forum that whenever the Pearson VUE sites goes under maintenance, new questions are added to the CCNA pool. Currently Pearson VUE site is under maintenance. Is the information of the forum true?

Can anyone also tell me if the test engine of cisco is web based which is operated the Pearson VUE or is it a kind of desktop application or something else?

Please answer ASAP.

Thank in Advance

Pearson VUE offers innovative computer-based testing solutions through secure, electronic test delivery. Pearson VUE provides licensure and certification. It is myth that site goes under maintenance n bla bla. CCNA questions are different every time exam. so its better don’t think about it n prepare for ur exam.

Pool Chemicals Sales

I just bought an above ground pool at a gargae sale. What chemicals do i add to it if any?

Its an above ground pool i think 12 feet wide by 3 feet deep. The pool did not come with a manual just a video that shows how to set it up. So im not sure if im suppose to add chemicals to it or not. How often should i do this?

For a pool that size all you should need to do is add a couple of cups of household bleach every few days. You can buy a test kit if you’d like to check on ph and such, but with an above ground pool that size, you’ll probably be adding water to it pretty regularly so I wouldn’t bother.
