The sanitation portion of your pool equipment kills the bacteria and organisms you can’t see. The traditional means of sanitation is to use chlorine in your pool. Performance Pool & Spa uses standard chlorine in all of our pools as a standard rule of thumb. Chlorine has been around for years and is even used to treat your municipal water supply.
Classic sanitation is done by putting chlorine into your swimming pool to kill all the “bad stuff”. Pentair’s Automatic Chlorinator is a simple way to add chlorine to your pool. You simply add 3 tablets in the top of the cylinder for constant chlorine feeding, no need for the “floating duck”. The chlorinator mounts on the return line immediately after the pool heater.

How Ultraviolet (UV) Sanitation Works
The pool water circulates through our Delta UV sanitation that uses the TYPE C UV rays to completely purify water, deactivating all the dangerous micro-organisms. This results in the cleanest and purest water possible for your pool. A small residual of chemicals are used in order to destroy any micro-organism that do not find their way into the UV sanitation.
Adding a Delta UV sanitation to your pool or spa will provide 99.99% contaminant-free water while reducing the use of chemicals. Delta UV units deactivate bacteria, germs, viruses, and algae including the chlorine-resistant protozoan parasites; cryptosporidium and giardia.
