What is Deionised Water?

One of the transport chemicals that we supply is Deionised Water. But what is it and what is it actually used for?

What is it?
Deionised Water, or DL water, is water that has the ions removed. Normally, tap water is full of ions, which makes it not impractical for certain uses. In order for normal water to become deionised, it has to go through an ion exchange process. But why is this necessary? Continue reading “What is Deionised Water?”

Importance of Qualitative Chemical Analysis

Chemical analysis is crucial to knowing what substances you are handling and if there are any elements that shouldn’t be there.

The primary means of this is through qualitative chemical analysis.

Chemicals We Use in Every Day Life

Chemicals make sure that we are given heat and power; allow us to buy clothing and goods; and ensures we have telecommunication, music and media wherever we may be.

Most of the changes that we see in the natural world around us are caused by chemicals reactions, such as the changing leaves and the growth of a flower.

Like we keep the benefits of chemicals in our life, we must also take care to treat them with respect so as to reduce potential harmful impact from exposure to them.

Swimming pool care: algae

Swimming Pool Chemicals

There is the possibility that your pool will acquire algae after a period of time.

The algae that pool owners need to watch out for is cyanobacteria, commonly referred to as blue-green algae.

The plant-cross-bacteria can blow into a pool and multiply at an advanced rate: a pool could be perfectly clear one day and the next, have a murky tint that resembles that of a pond.

Algae can be killed with chlorine, however, on some occasions the algae growth can be so severe that it is growing quicker than the chlorine is able to eradicate it.

There are algicides available, those falling into three different types: those with copper based compounds, quaternary ammonium compounds and polymeric quaternary ammonium compounds – the last two are often shortened to Quats and PolyQuats.

An extremely effective killer of algae is copper and will often be held in a complex of other chemicals so it can then be released to kill the algae.

After you have killed the algae, be sure to filter out the pool using clarifiers.
