Electro-Chlorination in Swimming Pools

Membrane electro-chlorination offers an alternative swimming pool water treatment to traditional chlorinated pools for commercial pools in leisure centres, hotels, and water parks. Using a process called membrane electro-chlorination, salt is converted into the chlorine needed to keep swimming pool systems clean and safe by improving the water quality. First popular in both Australia and the US, electro-chlorination is becoming an economical alternative for the UK leisure market.

Electro chlorination is commonly used in swimming pool disinfection to provide a safer and more controlled way to generate chlorine in situ compared to adding liquid or tablet forms of chlorine directly to the pool.

How to Remove Limescale From Around the House

Limescale is a chalky deposit that builds up because of the calcium carbonate in hard water. Limescale can cause stubborn stains to appear on surfaces and appliances around your home. You might notice limescale buildup on your kettle, showerhead, taps and kitchen or bathroom tiles.

It’s important that you tackle limescale buildup quickly so that it doesn’t cause damage. 

In this article, we’ve revealed the most effective cleaning methods for removing stubborn limescale from around the house.

How Far Are We From Being A Plastic-Free World?

Plastic is all around us and in almost everything we use; packaging for food, drink and household objects, mobile phones, computers, cars and the walls and doors of our homes all contain plastic. Although plastic has many beneficial properties as a versatile, affordable and durable material, it isn’t biodegradable. This means that when it ends up in landfill or the ocean it can take thousands of years for plastic to break down. Some types of plastic also release toxic pollutants as they break down which is harmful to the environment, oceans and marine life. 

Around the world, the climate change crisis is forcing countries to reassess how much plastic they are using and how we can all cut down on our plastic consumption. We currently produce 300 million tonnes of plastic every year, 50% of which is for single-use purposes. In this article, we’ve looked at the damage that plastic is doing to the environment, and have provided some easy ways that you can cut down on your plastic consumption too.

However, what people often don’t realise is that water is a finite resource, and one day it could run out. As the population gets bigger, rising demand and polluted water supplies becomes a more serious issue and it’s about time we took action.

In this article, we’ve looked at our current water usage in the UK, how this compares to other OECD countries and also looked at some ways that we can cut down our water usage too.
