This line is from
“The Rime of the Ancient Mariner,” a poem about a mariner lost aboard a ship
and surrounded by nothing but undrinkable salt water. Much the same applies to Caribbean islands,
surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean and with only very limited fresh groundwater
systems and calcium hypochlorite (cal hypo) sanitizers now treat all of the
recreational water and drinking water for a major resort in the Caribbean. The resort’s recreational water spans many,
many bodies of water, including swimming pools, water slide pools, a
swim-with-the dolphins lagoon and other fun water park features and attractions.
The resort’s recreational
waters are treated with Lonza’s Pulsar® cal hypo briquettes that are used in
our dedicated Pulsar® sanitizer feeding systems.
Chlor™ sanitizers and feeder systems are also being used to treat the resort
island’s drinking water, which is produced by two desalination plants (that
remove salt from ocean water). One of
the desalination plants is operated by a major global infrastructure company,
and they are so delighted with the success of our system at the island
desalination plant that the company has elected to install eight more Lonza
systems at their other desalination plants throughout the Caribbean. Essentially, our sanitizing system treats the
water once salt is removed, to assure it is safe to drink.
