Hi I'm new to the forum and swimming pools and have seen that there is a wealth of experience and help on this forum and was hoping someone might be able to help me with a couple of questions.
Our pool is being constructed at the moment and someone has recommended that we install a Blue Lagoon combined UV-C and Copper Ionizer
I suspect this exact model is not available in the US but if it is and anyone is familiar with it or anything similar I would welcome views but my question is:
It is described as a "chlorine free" solution but somehow I doubt it will be completely free and more likely "low chlorine" i.e. around 0.5 ppm. It has as part of the unit a peristaltic pump to inject liquids in to the pool which can be set to any quantity and time up to 60cc per hour. I realize I would have to monitor it and there are probably other factors that I have not allowed for as I'm new to this but as a starting point if I wanted to use the pump to inject liquid chlorine in to the pool to achieve 0.5 ppm at what quantity per hour would I have to set the pump?
I suspect the flow rate of my main pump will be relevant and I don't know this yet but if there is a formula that I can use when I know it that would be great.
I hope someone can help.
