Cohoes, NY –June 21, 2011– Aquatic Development Group, Inc. (ADG), a world leader in aquatic facility equipment design and construction, announced today that it is now the exclusive distributor of Engineered Treatment Systems (ETS) ultraviolet disinfection technology in upstate New York and New England.
“The uncomfortable and even harmful effects of high chloramine levels in public swimming facilities have always been a concern of the pool and leisure industry,” said Ken Ellis, president and CEO of ADG. “As a leading manufacturer of filtration systems it is important to support safer and more user-friendly options. We are excited to leverage our presence in this industry to promote ETS ultraviolet disinfection technology and the quality it delivers to our clients.”
ETS UV disinfection tackles the long-standing problem of removing chloramines. Where swimmers once complained of difficulty breathing, dry, itchy skin, and red-eyes, a UV system delivers water and air quality that is not only much safer but produces almost no such irritation. “Water now looks like it came from a glacier and the air quality is excellent,” said W.F. Newborg, Executive Director at Moorestown Community House.
UV technology provides a 99.9% inactivation rate of harmful bacteria and micro-organisms, significantly reducing the potential for a waterborne illness outbreak. UV is an effective safeguard against all known bacteria, viruses, and pathogens, including organisms such as Cryptosporidium and Giardia which are highly chlorine-resistant.
