London Aquatics Centre Tests the Water with Pooltest 25 Professional Plus

Posted: Monday 29th October 2012

London’s new state-of-the-art Aquatics Centre, one of the main venues for the upcoming events this summer, has recently purchased a Pooltest 25 Professional Plus photometer from Palintest to test the quality of their swimming pool water and make sure it really is a clean competition. The UK’s leading water analysis technology company, Palintest has a history of safeguarding water safety at previous major sporting events – including in Beijing four years ago, and Sydney before that.

This Palintest photometer is designed for full-range testing of a swimming pool’s water quality. The Aquatics Centre will use it to measure free residual chlorine, total residual chlorine, pH, alkalinity, hardness, ozone and other water quality parameters. Compared with similar products on the market, the Palintest Pooltest 25 Plus boasts significant technical advantages.

Palintest has more than 130 years’ history in the field of water testing and invented the international standard methodology for residual chlorine testing – the ‘DPD test’ or ‘Palin System’. Seamlessly integrating Palintest’s advanced chemical analysis technology with ergonomic design, the Pooltest 25 Plus features easy-to-use, rapid testing, in addition to high stability, compactness and portability. The IP67 ingress protection is especially useful for on-site testing, guarding against splashes, high-humidity environments and even full submersion.

Test data can be directly transferred to a computer or control system via a USB port. As well as conventional water testing functions, it also features automatic conversion of balanced water calculations, and will recommend ideal conditioning agent parameters, thus aiding swimming pool maintenance personnel. Palintest can also provide professional water quality analysis and treatment simulation software to be used with the Pooltest 25 Plus.

Located in the Olympic Park, the Aquatic Centre boasts impressive architecture, with its iconic concept coming from the fluid motion of water. Hosting swimming, diving, synchronised swimming and other events during London 2012, the National Aquatic Centre accommodates 2,500 spectators.
