Swimming Pool Water Treatment

Pulsafeeder manufacturer’s solutions for automating chemical injection into pools and spas. Pumps to inject pH adjusters, chlorine, muriatic acid, and corrosion control instead of manual addition.

Pulsafeeder products offer an affordable solution for chlorination, pH control and more for pool and spa applications.

A good portion of the equipment purchased is chemical metering pumps for the injection of chlorine. Chlorine is a sanitizing agent (disinfectant) that is used to eliminate viruses and bacteria in swimming pools, both residential and commercial.

  • Calcium hypochlorite - in powder or tablet form
  • Gaseous Chlorine - industrial gas supplied in cylinders
  • Sodium hypochlorite - a liquid that is commonly known as bleach

Commercial pools and spas are usually regulated by municipal health departments and require minimum chlorine residuals to meet standards. Maintaining the proper pH of swimming pool water increases the effectiveness chlorine and prevents degradation of pool surfaces and associated equipment. The pH level in water largely impacts how the water will affect chlorine levels (expressed in PPM), equipment and bather health. And in swimming pools, low pH can be corrosive to plaster surfaces and high pH water can cause scale to form and decrease the effectiveness of chlorine.



When balancing pool water chemistry, industry standard dictates the measurements of free chlorine, pH and alkalinity. Typically, pH (7.2 objective) can be controlled by injection of muriatic acid. If the pH is too high, increase the feed rate of the acid. Chlorine is injected to achieve the required standard of 3PPM and alkalinity can be increased with the addition of baking soda. There are two schools of thought when it comes to injection of chemicals: positive displacement diaphragm and peristaltic metering pumps. Positive displacement metering pumps are more accurate but require de-gassing wet end heads. Peristaltic are better on gaseous solutions but are labor intensive. Pulsafeeder is the only manufacturer in the state of Florida that offers customers both options:
