The fourth edition of this classic book provides a comprehensive treatise on the design and construction of swimming pools, both public and private. Significantly revised, it covers planning, materials, design, construction and finishing, water circulation and treatment, energy conservation, maintenance and repairs. This is a standard book for all civil engineers who need to design and construct swimming pools, and a useful reference on the design of water-retaining structures.
9.2 Heating the water in indoor swimming pools The temperature of the water in indoor swimming pools is generally higher than in open-air pools. In private house, club and hotel pools, the temperature is often 30 °C, while in public ...

This thesis describes the occurrence of microbial and chemical contaminants in swimming pools and the investigation of an alternative disinfection technology, UVOX Redox® that could reduce reliance on chlorine and the formation of chlorinated disinfection byproducts (DBPs) in swimming pools. This technology was effective in inactivation of chlorine resistant microorganisms, represented by Bacillus subtilis spores, and in combination with chlorine generated lower concentrations of chlorinated DBPs compared to chlorination alone. It enhanced the removal of pharmaceuticals and personal care products (PPCPs), which were frequently present in indoor, outdoor and spa pools. Carbamazepine and 1H-benzotriazole were the most frequently detected PPCPs, while hydrochlorothiazide and 4-methylbenzylidene camphor were detected at the highest concentration. An investigation of seven different swimming pool facilities showed that clinically relevant fungi were omnipresent. Floors at the sites where the pool visitors converge, such as the exit leading to shower rooms, showed the highest fungal concentrations. The distribution of fungi inside the swimming pool facilities highlighted potential transmission pathways and a possible risk of fungal infections. Future swimming pool water guidance should include raising awareness among swimmers, pool operators and managers about hygienic behaviour and better hygiene measures, and application of alternative disinfection technologies such as UVOX. Key features: Identifies clinically relevant fungi in swimming pool environments Identifies potential transmission pathways of clinically relevant fungi in indoor swimming pools Highlights the occurrence of PPCPs in different type of pools and their relation with pool water treatment Assesses an alternative disinfection technology for swimming pool water treatment.
Chlorine is needed in swimming pools to provide a residual disinfectant in pool water. The application of a combination of ozone and UV and chlorination in swimming pools has not been much explored yet, with respect to the efficiency to ...

Swimming pools offer a controlled environment in which to exercise, and they can also provide hours of fun and recreation. But installing and maintaining a swimming pool can be a daunting task. In A Guide to Swimming Pool Maintenance and Filtration Systems, author E T Chan presents fundamental principles in the planning, design, maintenance, and operation of swimming pools, including the sizing of the pool filtration system and the filtration plant room. Illustrated with stories and anecdotes from Chan’s personal experience, this guide offers technical know-how to correctly design and install proper swimming pool filtration systems. He discusses the importance of physics and science in maintaining a healthy pool and provides awareness of general pool health versus swimmer health. Filled with a wealth of practical information, Chan includes diagrams, charts, and graphs to help pool professionals apply their skills. A Guide to Swimming Pool Maintenance and Filtration Systems serves as a manual for those involved in swimming pool design, construction, and maintenance. It contains details covering the required mechanical and electrical engineering as well as the application of swimming pool filtration system designs and analyses—in solving most of the practical and complex problems faced by the professionals in the industry today.
Bathing loads in Singapore public swimming pools are particularly high as on schooling days, the primary school students are ferried in busloads to the swimming complexes for their swimming lessons as part of their study curriculum.
