UV Rescues Your Pool from
Waterborne Pathogens

Shift to Ultraviolet for a Safer Pool

SpectraLight more than 60 disease-causing microorganisms and pathogens while using nothing more than light. It’s the closest thing to swimming in a natural spring. And SpectraLight adds nothing to your pool water, so it’s just as safe as it is effective.

UV is a Take No Prisoners Approach to Pathogens

Imagine an ultraviolet light so powerful, so potent, that nothing can escape it: 60,000 microwatts of power. That’s the power of SpectraLight. Using a precision-engineered ultraviolet ray, SpectraLight destroys virtually all pathogens and microorganisms. SpectraLight rescues your pool from bacteria, algae, viruses, cysts, protozoa and other disease-causing pathogens. In fact, UV destroys more than 50 waterborne pathogens. And UV works overtime, continuously destroying pathogens 24 hours per day, 7 days a week.

Waterborne Pathogens Fuel Diseases, Risk Public Health

Waterborne pathogens get a lot of exposure in the news. That’s because they’ve been associated with some of the nastiest recreational water illnesses (RWI's) ever reported. Germs such as cryptosporidium, E. coli, giardia, and shigella cause diarrhea, the most common symptom. The most severe diseases are cryptosporidiosis and giardiasis. Although a few RWI cases have led to kidney failure, the more common and less severe complications are skin rashes, respiratory infections and otitis externa, commonly called swimmers ear. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has been gathering information from state health authorities on RWI outbreaks since 1978. Since 1985, the number of outbreaks of diarrhea connected with swimming pools is on the rise. Some of these outbreaks have affected thousands of swimmers. Ultra-potent UV is scientifically proven to eliminate waterborne pathogens while lowering the need for chemicals.

Ultrapotent UV Does What Chlorine and
Chemicals Fail to Do

Some chlorine-resistant pathogens can survive in a chlorinated pool for days. SpectraLight destroys viruses that chlorine cannot, including cryptosporidium, legionella, and giardia. The ultra-potent nature of UV has made it a popular choice with hundreds of public pools, whereas a single RWI outbreak could affect thousands of swimmers.

Quickly Take Back Control

Two Seconds. That’s how long it takes SpectraLight to destroy a pathogen as it passes through the sterilization chamber. 30 minutes. That’s how long it takes to install SpectraLight on your pool. And the best part is, SpectraLight uses the power of a regular light bulb. Now that's a smart approach to pool water.
