Therapy Pool & Spas Applications


Spas and therapy pools are often specialized applications that operate with both increased temperatures and increased water turbulence. Due to the high temperature of the water and increased bather loads, pool applications such as spas and therapy pools are a breeding ground for harmful microorganisms such as E-Coli and Cryptosporidium despite high levels of chlorine.

When spa features include water jets, bathers both in and around the spa area are at risk of contracting Legionnaires Disease from atomized water, while dangerous parasites such as pseudomonas can be contracted through the skin if bathers come into contact with the jets.

Therapy pools used for exercise and rehab consist of a relatively low volume of cold or hot water with a heavy concentration of sweat and chemicals used to protect wounds or enhance the healing process. These conditions can often create infections that can be passed on to others in the water.

In order to combat these problems, the state-of-the-art ETS ECP UV system range has been developed. As a high output, ultra compact system this unit has the capacity to fully meet the biological demands and increased flows associated with spa and therapy pool applications. The ECP range has become highly popular among trainers worldwide.

The benefits of UV technology include:

  • Inactivates chlorine tolerant pathogens, such as Cryptosporidium and staph
  • Breaks down chloramines and other organics
  • Improves water quality
  • Treats full recirculating flow
  • Provides a non-chemical solution
  • Reduces the need for "Shock Treatments" to reduce combined chlorine levels
  • Provides a non-hazardous, green technology solution
  • Enhances air quality
