3 IntroductionChlorine is used worldwide for sanitation with proven efficacyChlorine has well known disadvantagesOzone can be a good alternatives like other oxidizing compoundsThe actions of most oxidizing compounds have results limited to the water phase onlyAquaFinesse water care product are specifically designed to mitigate the biofilm
4 Introduction 2A slow release sanitizing tablet (dispenser) is used on top of the hot tub filter system for extra bactericidal effect in the filter elements or a sanitizing tablet in the skimmer of the poolNearly all bacteria (99%) will settle on a substrate and metamorphose to their sessile form ending up in a slime layerThick biofilms are hardly be penetrated by oxidising compounds so excessive chlorine concentrations are necessary to remove biofilms25ppm for 48 hours
5 Product Description What is AquaFinesse? -AquaFinesse is a proprietary solution thatworks to eliminate biofilm, bacteria, calciumand scale buildup from pools, hot tub water,and equipment-Works in conjunction with ozone and UVsystems to operate with a very low doses ofsanitizers-Softens water and adds a light lavender scent to hot tubs
6 Product DescriptionProvides worry free water care in just one step per weekNo additional pH +/-, alkalinity, clarifiers orchlorine shock productsThe products are supplied in a convenient carrying case that provides up to 6 months* of effective gentle water care

12 Biofilm FormationBiofilm is the slimy, sticky substance adhering to the walls and especially inside the tubing of hot tubs and pools, consisting of xPS (extra cellular Polymeric Substances) and its bacteria population, including grazersBiofilm formation change in thickness and consistency, creating varying substrata, which can withstand to a certain level most current biocidesBiofilm protects bacteria and provides a perfect multiplication environmentBiofilms will absorb nutrients introduced into the tub or pool. (skin, oils, body fluids etc.) serving as food source for the bacteriaAlso in older tubs and pools biofilm formation is found in conjunction with scaling
13 Biofilm Formation 2Biofilm sequence of sticking molecules, initial colonisation by bacteria and final stage ending up in a toad-stool like layer with channels creating different environments for bacteria populations
14 Biofilm Formation 3Example of the combination of biofilm, algae and scaling
15 Human pathogensA hot tub could be the perfect breeding ground for bacteria due to biofilm development nutrition and warm water when untreatedGenerally, keeping the biofilm formation to zero or low by the described cleaning procedures, including the filter cleaning and use the sanitizing tablet the chance for infection by human pathogens will be negligible
16 Mode of action of AquaFinesse & Pool Puck • AquaFinesse and Pool Puck is a new and patented product developed to penetrate the biofilm, loosening and coagulating it up from its substrateThe filter system will remove the debris from the waterThe optional extra safety precaution of a slow release sanitizing tablet in a dispenser on top of the filter system for hot tubs or in the skimmer for pools was developed to ensure complete disinfection of the filter elements
17 Mode of action of AquaFinesse & Pool Puck Dispersed bio-film is flushed into the tub filter which must be cleaned frequently (every three days) when starting an older tub (more than 6 months old) with AquaFinesse or Pool Puck• AquaFinesse and Pool Puck will eliminate bacteria numbers considerably by cleaning up the biofilm, and most be used with oxidizing compoundPool Puck will reduce chlorine use by up to 70% after the 1st 30 daysWith little or no bacteria the chlorine has nothing to do so it you will have lots of free chlorine Save time, save cost and stop the smell of chlorineA must have for indoor pools, no shocking, no heavy chlorine smell
18 General application of AquaFinesse & Pool Puck Dispersed bio-film is flushed into the filter which must be cleaned very frequently (every three days) when starting an older tub or pool (over 6 months) with AquaFinesse or Pool PuckRotate filters every three days for 7-10 day on a new tubs and for older tubs until water is clear. Finally rotate weekly, once the tub and water are conditionedThe filter system and ozone installation are the most important components with AquaFinesse™. Filters should be able to collect the fine debris left by bathers while AquaFinesse™ protects you and eliminates the growth of bacteriaThe filter system and the sanitizing tablet protects and eliminates the growth of bacteria with Pool Puck
19 General application of AquaFinesse & Pool Puck • AquaFinesse and Pool Puck also breaks down (calcium) scaling in the pool and hot tub and it is flushed into the filter, cleaning up all scaled parts over timeThe water has to be conditioned by AquaFinesse and Pool Puck, this can take a couple of days when the tub or pool itself is new. Frequent filter rotation or cleaning are recommended for the first weekStarting AquaFinesse and Pool Puck with older hot tubs or pools, frequent filtration cleaning should be done more often because the breakdown of built up bio-film and scaling can last up to a month!
20 General Hot tub problems Ozone installation is not workingFilter is not cleaned regularly giving odor problems or cloudy waterJets not in operation several times a day for thoroughly mixing to facilitate correct ozonation and filtrationNew hot tubs can already be scaled and fouled up due to testing in the factory and showroomOil on the water due to excessive use of body lotions
21 General pool problems Filter dirty and poor water circulation Pool pump not running during all daylight hoursSanitizer tablet used upOld filter media
