How does it work?
The new water treatment system combines a central electro disinfection system (OXY-3) and a residual disinfection system (through the salt-electrolyser). The central disinfection system is based on a combination of ECD® Electro Chemical Disinfection, UV disinfection and copper ionization.

10 things you need to know about low-chlorine swimming
In July 2019, the Agency for Care and Health gave the green light for the installation of the innovative low-chlorine disinfection system for public swimming pools. After the successful pilot project in Dilbeek, you can now swim with low chlorine in Merelbeke, Overijse, Rotselaar and Antwerp. More to follow soon!
Scientific studies show the correlation between chlorinated swimming and the development of asthma and infertility with young children. It was not recommended to go swimming with babies and toddlers in public swimming pools. Our low-chlorine solution to the rescue!
Due to the low chlorine content, the allergic reactions to both the respiratory tract (sneezing, nasal discharge, coughing) and the skin (red spots, itching, dry skin) decrease. This makes it also possible for people with a sensitivity to chlorine to swim. Let’s not forget that 1 in 15 children suffer from chlorine.
Chlorine evaporates and not only provides the classic pool smell, but also irritations to the respiratory tract. Many life guards and swim teachers suffer from throat irritation or a dry cough from the chlorine fumes.
With NoviNato, that is a thing of the past, even if you’re exposed to it all day.
Chlorine vapours in the air cause rust to form on all metal parts in a swimming pool, even on stainless steel. Less chlorine therefore means less rust and also considerably eases the work for the cleaning staff. Result? A saving on maintenance costs, a saving on intensive maintenance and a shiny swimming pool!
Less chlorine means less corrosion on electronic components and metal parts. This means that the parts need to be replaced less quickly. The decrease in chlorine content therefore saves on replacements and makes any low-chlorine pool cheaper.
The OXY-3 device is so they can be connected to the main pipe in any cellar. This makes it possible to transform any public swimming pool into a low-chlorine swimming pool, not only in a new construction, but also during a renovation.
