Freepool by Fluidra

Want to be on top of your public pool game?
Well, you’re in the right place here.
We are here to tell you that Freepool is the way to go.

With the increase in requests for sustainable waters solutions, swimming pool giant Fluidra (yes, Fluidra is the biggest swimming pool group in the world!), has developed Freepool, a low-chlorine filtration system with body. Fluidra’s department of engineering is located in Barcelona and specializes in public pools. With our hearts full of hope and heads full of ideas, we travelled to Barcelona to give them a visit. Now, we can call Zuuvr a proud partner, distributer and builder of Freepool. Predominantly in renovation projects, or newly built projects with large water volumes that are intensively used/polluted, we can offer you a huge advantage with Freepool.

Freepool gives public pools the feel-good factor, eco-health and sustainability. The Freepool system disinfects the water in the swimming pool with the most natural and sustainable technology on the market, named Neolysis, and it corrects the pH-levels by injecting high efficiency CO2 through a GVG system, which uses all of the gas in the cylinder, whilst reducing water consumption.

Freepool is a highly tested system and has received its approval from the large public. Both recreative swimmers, ranging from young to old, as well as top-level professional athletes who are in the water all day every day, highly recommend Freepool!

WHAT ARE THE HEALTH BENEFITS OF FREEPOOL?

The system is designed to provide perfect water quality with the added value of taking care of the health of users.
By not using chemicals directly, it improves the experience of users:

– It avoids skin irritation.
– It reduces ocular, nasal and respiratory (asthma) problems.
– It decreases inflammatory responses in the airways.
– It provides a clean environment without a strong smell of chlorine.
– The range of other advantages of low-chlorine options is provided throughout the Zuuvr website

WHAT ADVANTAGES DOES IT HAVE FOR THE INSTALLATIONS?

The use of Freepool increases the durability of the swimming pool’s components, such as stainless-steel elements (stairs, podiums, water games, etc.). It improves the safety of the installation: thanks to the automated control of the water disinfection system, it avoids handling errors and it increases the safety of the installation by avoiding the addition of chemical products. And it improves sustainability because it saves water and energy compared to other existing water disinfection systems on the market.

  • 66% reduction in the consumption of new supplies of water, with savings in water and energy wherever it is installed.
  • 100% reduction in the addition of diluted acids and chlorinated products; it completely avoids the need to add chlorinated products (hypochlorite, chlorine tablets, etc.) and acids.

 

TECHNICAL INFORMATION

What is Neolysis?

It is a solution for the treatment and disinfection of swimming pool water based on electrolysis and ultraviolet technology. It combines the key features and benefits of these technologies and it corrects their drawbacks or limitations: It is not necessary to add salt to the swimming pool basin. It provides a highly effective double disinfection (Electrolysis + UV). Increased ability to eliminate chloramines. It increases the positive effects of sustainability by saving water and energy. It reduces the concentration of chloramines without the need to wash the filter. Therefore, Neolysis is synonym with sustainability, disinfection, innovation, health, safety and water quality. Furthermore, as no chlorine products are added it is not necessary to store, handle or dose any type of chemical product, thus increasing safety levels.

What is the high-efficiency GVG System?

This is a device that regulates the swimming pool’s pH through the injection of CO2. Itis controlled by software based on the criteria of maximum sustainability and efficiency and it communicates with the other water treatment equipment.

What is CO2?

CO2 is a gas that is essential for life on Earth that is also useful for controlling the acidity (pH) of the water in swimming pools. Its natural presence in groundwater, rivers, lakes and seas made us think about its use for the treatment of the water in swimming pools and after conducting extensive research its high level of effectiveness was proven. The CO2 replaces hydrochloric acid and reduces the compounds that can result from the mixture of chemicals, thereby achieving healthier water. It also reduces the installation’s emissions of greenhouse gases.

What is chloramine?

It is a molecule that is formed when chlorine comes into contact with organic substances in the water such as sweat, urine, insects or the surrounding vegetation and it can cause redness and dryness of the skin. Lengthy exposure can cause injuries to the lung epithelium and result in asthma symptoms. Chloramine also causes the typical “chlorine smell” of swimming pools that appears after mixing chlorine with the water. The levels of this substance are higher in indoor swimming pools because the water is at a higher temperature and due to the poor hygiene of users.
