What causes that “chlorine smell” and what we are doing about it in our new aquatic center? Check out the incredible technology built into these pools.

Chloramines are the chemical compounds that give most pools that distinct “chlorine smell.” They are also responsible for burning eyes and respiratory problems. In our new pools, we have installed Paddock Evacuator Gutter Systems that will remove these irritating compounds. As demonstrated in the video, the system removes chloramine compounds from the surface of the pool before they enter the room’s air. Overall this will lead to a more enjoyable and healthier swimming experience.
