ADEQUATE protection of swimming pool waters has been of paramount importance for many years to health officials who are charged with responsibility for the safety and health of the public. The use of the chlorine compounds or of chlorine gas has been written into practically every regulation concerned with the disinfection of drinking water. The limitations of chlorine for swimming pool water treatment have been discussed thoroughly over the years-its instability, its capacity for forming…

Pseudomonas aeruginosa for the Evaluation of Swimming Pool Chlorination and Algicides

Concentrations of ammonia and the chlorine stabilizer, cyanuric acid, which could be expected in swimming pools decreased the rate of kill by chlorine of the potential pathogen, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and the synergism of chlorine and the organic mercury algicide was demonstrated with these waters and with sewage treatment plant effluents.

The effect of cyanuric acid on the disinfection rate of Cryptosporidium parvum in 20-ppm free chlorine.

Current public health recommendations for hyperchlorination and pool remediation are insufficient for pools using cyanurate-stabilized chlorine to achieve a three log inactivation of the parasite.

Virucidal effect of chlorinated water containing cyanuric acid

In the swimming-pool and tap water, cyanuric acid delayed the virucidal effect of chlorine as much as in the 'clean' condition of chlorine-buffered distilled water, and the available chlorine value should be increased to 1.5 mg/l when cyanurics acid is used in swimming- pool water.

Effect of cyanuric acid on the inactivation of Cryptosporidium parvum under hyperchlorination conditions.

This study demonstrates CYA significantly delays chlorine inactivation of Cryptosporidium oocysts, emphasizing the need for additional pool remediation options following fecal incidents.
