Water treatment plants

9. (1) the pool water has to be treated with a water treatment plant, which will ensure that section, part B, required water quality in the 2nd after para. 2 and pursuant to sections 10 to 13 meets the requirements.

(2) water treatment plants include plant parts such as Stilling basin, coarse filter, recirculation pumps, flow meter for the flow rate, Flockungsmitteldosier - and flocculant mixing equipment, baghouses, Chlorlöseeinrichtungen chlorine dosing devices, facilities for pH correction including measurement and control devices and facilities that are required for the water management in basin; the procedure pursuant to § 14 No. 2 in addition the components of ozone oxidation state such as ozone generators, mixing equipment, reaction vessels and activated carbon filter (Entozonungsfilter).

§ 10. If there are several pool at a water treatment plant, each tank must have a their own chlorine metering point.

§ 11. For the measurement of the flow, an easy-to-read gauge must be installed for each tank.

§ 12. To measure and control the concentration of free chlorine, a measuring and control device must be at least operated for each tank. Powered plunge pool, Wat-pedal and Durchschreitebecken are excluded in continuous operation.

§ 13. To the measurement and control of pH, a measuring and control device must be at least operated for each treatment cycle.

b) flocculation - filtration - ozone oxidation state (ozonation and activated carbon filtration) in the fractional - disinfection (chlorination);

3. flocculation - filtration - disinfection (chlorine chlorine dioxide process by adding an aqueous solution of chlorite, manufactured according to p.-Berger procedure).

Calculation of the flow

Section 15 (1) comprising the flow of QA and the sum of respective supplements QZ total flow QG.

              

(2) the flow of QA for a pool or part of a pool is calculated as follows: it means:

QG = total flow rate in m³/h

QA = flow calculated due to the basin type and dimensions and the respective preparation process, in m³/h

QZ = supplement to the flow rate, calculated on the basis of the attractions in accordance with section 22, in m³/h

= M m² water surface area of the basin

= Load factor in = specific load in (3) the load factor f depends on the depth of the basin, and 1 with a water depth of up to 1.35 m: f = 3;

2. at a water depth of 1.35 m: f = 5.

(4) the specific strain b is the value for the performance of a water treatment plant. The value of the specific strain b is 1 the processing procedure pursuant to § 14 Z 1: b = 0.5;

2. when the treatment procedure pursuant to § 14 No. 2 lit. a: b = 0.6;

3. for the processing procedure pursuant to § 14 No. 2 lit. b: b = 0.5;

4. when the treatment procedure pursuant to § 14 Z 3: b = 0.5.

(5) If a recycling time of more than six hours, arises from the calculation of the flow due to a deep basin (E.g. a jump basin) as a recycling time must not be exceeded still six hours.

§ 16. At Variobecken, the flow rate according to the formula for a water depth is up to 1.35 m to calculate.


§ 17. At children's pool, the flow rate according to the formula for a water depth is up to 1.35 m to calculate. A three-time circulation of the entire basin contents per hour is reached however.

Section 18 (1) for warm basin is the flow capacity of the processing procedures pursuant to § 14 Z 1, subpara 2 lit. b and Z 3 according to the formula



and the treatment procedure pursuant to § 14 No. 2 lit. a according to the formula



to calculate.

(2) a circulation time by more than two hours, arises from the calculation of the flow for a warm pool with a surface larger than 40 square meters as a recycling time must not be exceeded still by two hours.

(3) a circulation time by more than an hour, emerges from the calculation of the flow for a warm pool with a surface less than equal to 40 m² as a recycling time must not be exceeded still by an hour.

Section 19 (1) for Multipurpose tub is the flow for each pool section to calculate separately. The water treatment plant for such tanks is to be interpreted for the sum of all funding streams. The calculated flow rates are the respective area according to recycle.

(2) in the case of multi-purpose pool the separate supply may be omitted if 1 the area with a water depth ≤ 1.35 m a share of 20% which shall not exceed the total water area;

2. the surface area with a water depth of > 1.35 m does not exceed 20% of the total water surface area and the flow of QA is used for a water depth less than equal to 1.35 m.

(3) in the presence of a roller cover, where the housing into the water dips and lies outside of the scope of the basin, the ground surface of the casing to the surface of the water of the basin is to be added in the calculation of the flow rate.

Section 20 (1) therapy pools is the flow rate be calculated as follows: 1. when the treatment procedure pursuant to § 14 No. 1 and 2 lit. b and 3 according to the formula:



QA is equivalent to A 2nd in the treatment process in accordance with § 14 Z = 2 lit. (a) according to the formula:



is equivalent to (2) for the Group of persons "incontinent" or "increased infection risk (E.g. immune significantly)" only the treatment procedure pursuant to § 14 No. 2 is lit. a permissible and according to the following formula to calculate: the entire pool water volume is equivalent to but at least once per hour must be circulated.

(3) the flow of the therapy basin must be at least 16 m ³/h.

§ 21 (1) hot hot tub (whirl pool) is the flow rate be calculated as follows: it means:

              N = number of user seats

              QG = total flow rate in m³/h

(2) 80 cm are the calculation of the number of places for users to apply space width per person.

(3) in the case of single-layer filters, filter speed ≤ 20 m / h should be.

(4) in the case of multi layer filters must be the filter speed ≤ 25 m / h and is the grain size combination B in accordance with § 28 para. 1 No. 2 to use.

(5) the pool water that is displaced by the swimmers must be taken from the water circuit and replaced by filling water.

(6) water treatment combines warm hot tub (whirl pools) and other pool, the filter surface of treatment plant has to be the sum of the filter surface resulting from the total flow per basin in conjunction with the filter speeds permissible (single-layer filter in accordance with § 27, multi-layer filters in accordance with § 28). The flow capacity of the treatment plant is the sum of the total flow of the tanks.

(7) the flow of the warm whirlpool basin (whirl pool) must be at least 16 m ³/h.

Calculation of surcharges to the flow

§ 22 (1) attractions may be but not operated only with treated water or pool water, with water from a Stilling basin.

(2) in the case of small-scale attractions QZ surcharges have to be: 1 at a water temperature of ≤ 32 ° C for any small-scale attraction 3 m³/h per user seat;

2. at a water temperature of > 32 ° C for any small-scale attraction 5 m³/h per user seat;

3. If you attractions usable by more than one person at the same time, take into account where the width of a user square 1 m is the number of user seats for the calculation of the aggregate.

(3) in the case of large-scale attractions is the surcharge QZ = 60 m³/h per attraction.

(4) in the case of water slides 1 with a starting altitude of ≤ 1 m is the QZ 2 with a starting height = 5 m³/h, > 1 m and < 2 m is the QZ = 35 m³/h, 3. with a starting height ≥ 2 m is the QZ = 60 m ³/h.

(5) If a value of more than 2 QA, arises from the QG flow calculation in a water playground QG flow rate may be limited nonetheless to 2 QA.

Calculation of nominal power

section 23. The nominal load is 1 the processing procedure pursuant to § 14 Nos. 1 and 2 lit. b: N ≙ QA x 0.5;

2. when the treatment procedure pursuant to § 14 No. 2 lit. a: N ≙ QA x 0.6.

3. for the processing procedure pursuant to § 14 Z 3: N ≙ QA x 0.5.
