Cutting-edge UV water treatment systems for swimming pools are making a splash in pool care. They’re a game-changer for backyard pools and large commercial pools at hotels, gyms, public parks, and aquatic centres.

It's not just about clean water; UV-treated water is a sustainable and effective solution for eliminating harmful microorganisms and reducing chlorine reliance.

Explore the range of UV systems for swimming pools at UV Guard for a safer and healthier swimming environment.

What Is a UV Water Treatment System?

A UV water treatment system uses ultraviolet light to disinfect pool water safely and without chemicals. As water passes through the system, it's exposed to UV light. The light targets the DNA of harmful microorganisms, rendering them harmless and unable to reproduce.

Harmful microorganisms in pool water can cause gastrointestinal problems like diarrhoea, nausea, stomach cramps, and more serious conditions in people with weakened immune systems.

The microorganisms that UV systems for swimming pools can neutralise include:

  • Bacteria
  • Viruses
  • Algae
  • Protozoa
  • Pathogens (E. coli, Giardia, Cryptosporidium)

How Do UV Guard's UV Water Treatment Systems for Swimming Pools Work?

UV water treatment systems for swimming pools are a sustainable and environmentally friendly water disinfection solution.

Our UV pool water purification systems use special UV lamps that generate ultraviolet light at a specific wavelength to deactivate over 99% of harmful microorganisms and pathogens in water. This UV lamp replicates the germicidal properties of natural sunlight but is more concentrated and controlled for consistent and effective water disinfection.

UV disinfectant for swimming pools stands apart from traditional chlorine-based methods as it does not depend on chemicals for disinfection.

What are some other benefits of UV water treatment? It’s all about reduction!


  • Chlorine levels - up to 90% in commercial pools! Using less chlorine saves swimmers from possible skin irritation, burning eyes, allergic reactions, and respiratory problems for asthma sufferers.
  • Frequency of adding and recirculating water, plus filter backwashing.
  • Formation of chloramines. These chemical compounds form in pools when chlorine reacts with organic substances like sweat, oils, and urine. Chloramines are responsible for eye irritation and strong odours.
  • Environmental impact from chemical production, transportation, and handling.
  • Health impact on swimmers. Reduced chloramine formation helps improve air and water quality for a healthier swimming environment.

Now let's take a look at the features and benefits of UV Guard's UV water treatment systems for swimming pools.

The MPX-Series™ offers high-performance medium-pressure UV water disinfection ideal for commercial swimming pools and water features.

Key features and benefits of the MPX-Series™ include:

  • Pool chloramine destruction at flows from 10 to 800 m3/hr.
  • Designed for space efficiency, allowing installation in either a horizontal or vertical position.
  • Large 7" HMI touchscreen for easy operation and monitoring.

Our S-Series™ system provides strong UV water disinfection for moderate-flow industrial and commercial applications.

Key features and benefits of the S-Series™ include:

  • Water disinfection for flows up to 50 m3/hr.
  • Optional controller features for specific needs, including swimming pools.
  • Multiple inlet and outlet options.
  • Internal flow mixer that optimises UV exposure.

Our X-Series™ is a long-life, low-maintenance system for large commercial swimming pools with high UV dose requirements due to larger volumes of water, higher bather loads, and stricter health and safety regulations.

Key features and benefits of the X-Series™:

  • Ideal for liquids with low UV Transmittance (UVT), high UV dose requirements, and large flows (30-700 m3/hr and beyond).
  • Up to 16,000 hours of operational UV lamp life.
  • UV reactor configured to maximise efficiency and performance.
  • Multiple inlet and outlet connection types and positions.

FAQs About UV Water Treatment Systems for Swimming Pools

Are UV Pool Systems Safe?2024-02-09T17:00:28+11:00

Yes, UV pool systems are considered safe. They use ultraviolet light to neutralise harmful microorganisms without adding chemicals to the water. This means there’s less risk of skin, eye, and respiratory irritation commonly associated with chlorine.

Additionally, UV systems don’t produce harmful by-products, so they’re safer for the environment.

Is UV Cheaper Than Chlorine?2024-02-09T17:00:16+11:00

It depends! Initially, UV systems can have a higher setup cost than traditional chlorine systems. However, UV can be more cost-effective in the long run due to lower operational costs, reduced chemical usage, and less maintenance.

Is It Worth Investing in a UV Water Treatment System?2024-02-09T16:59:19+11:00

Investing in a UV pool sanitising system is worth it to maintain a clean, safe, and comfortable swimming environment. They eliminate harmful pathogens, reduce reliance on chemicals like chlorine, and minimise skin and eye irritants like chloramines.
