ORP and Oxidation

Oxidation/reduction potential… We’ve all heard the term, but what does it really mean? We’ll see that it is, essentially, a relative measure of the desired “work value” of our pool sanitizer  and a pretty darn’ good one at that. But first, let’s dissect the term itself.

Hey y'all! Hope your Christmas break was joyful and that your "in-season" or "off-season", depending on which hemisphere you're in, is equally joyful. No matter the season, as a member of this group, water quality of the pools under your charge is of the highest concern. Kent Williams and the PPOA have always endeavored to support us in that cause with clear, unbiased science based writing designed to address the many fassets of pool operations. In keeping with this goal, I bring you another of his archived writings that I have personally found to be essential reading in the process of understanding and applying the control of oxidation; ORP and Oxidation. Take a moment to read, pass on, or ask your mates questions regarding this important topic. EnJOY! ~RB

This technical discussion, "Breaking Point" on LinkedIn could now qualify as a Webinar! Super resource(s) for Operators! Most definitely worth a look see.

Hello again Chlorineheads! Just in case you've lost touch with the outside world in recent weeks due to your preparations for the imminent swim season, I thought I would pass on these two recent AI postings on Cyanuric Acid use. Read, or re-read first: http://www.aquaticsintl.com/chemicals/is-cya-out-on-the-inside.aspx. Then please read: http://www.aquaticsintl.com/chemicals/cya-revisited.aspx, Kent Williams and Rich Youngs clarifying reply. If you use, or are considering using CYA, you need to read these posts! Then go back in the pumproom! Have a safe and healthy season y'all! ~RB

Just wanted to post a quick flash back to the AI Feb '13 Influential People Issue and Kent Williams' profile (http://www.aquaticsintl.com/leadership/kent-williams.aspx) in case it slipped by you. His contributions to our industry over the years are well deserving of this recognition and an inspiration to Operators that should not be over looked! Here's more on Kent's accomplished background; http://www.theaquapedia.com/index.php?title=Kent_Williams.

Kudos to our most distinguished leader!

Hey there y'all!

Wanted to extend a belated Welcome to all of those who recently joined the PPOA on AIConnect. Thank you!

I had a conversation last week with a college natatorium director about ORP and its relationship to the sanitation of pool water. It reminded me of a very informative article by Matthew Griffith published in AI recently titled Quality Control . I thought that I would share it here because it rings true with Kent's writings on the subject and provides critical understanding of the concept. Please pass it on to operators in your respective spheres of influence. http://www.aquaticsintl.com/2012/jan/1201_tech.html

Enjoy your Fall or Spring seasons friends!

RB
