Using Crystal Waters In Your Plunge Pool:

Crystal Waters is a 3 part chemical system which should be added on alternating schedules. Sanitiser which is used to kill any bacteria in the pool, should be added on a weekly basis. Shimmer Algaecide must be added every 10 weeks (depending on evaporation) and is used to keep your water looking crystal clear and ready to use. Lastly, once a fortnight, Shine is to be added to the water, this is used to oxidize the water.

All 3 elements are required to ensure sanitised, clear water. In conjunction with these, water should be checked and balanced for pH, Total Alkalinity and Total Hardness on a weekly basis.

Using MagnaPool In Your Plunge Pool:

Included as standard in our Silver and Gold Packages (on an ongoing basis), MagnaPool is a mineral system that is added on a yearly basis (on average). Exact dosage amounts are determined on factors such as is your Plunge Pool has a hardcover or not (sunlight vs, almost no sunlight on water) along with how much use your Plunge Pool has. The more sunlight and more use with a large quantity of people, the more dosages (instead of 1 dosage a year it might be 2).

MagnaPool works in conjunction with your Viron eQuilibrium EQ18 Chlorinator and Probes (Probes included depend on Pool Package). Once Magnesium is manually added to your Plunge Pool, a required level of sanitisation is programmed into your Viron Chlorinator, which will then send a charge to the Magnesium, thus creating sanitiser. Dosing instructions can be found below.

Silver Package: The Probe included in this package is a ‘pH probe’. This means that the sanitation level needs to be programmed into the Viron eQuilibrium EQ18 Chlorinator to correctly make the right level of sanitisation. The salinity level (sanitiser) must be between 4,000 and 5,000 ppm. In our Silver Package, pH will be automatically dosed if reading high, however pH must be checked and dosed on a regular basis.

Gold Package: Our Gold Package is our self automated system and includes a pH Probe & ORP Probe. This means that unlike the Silver Package, the Viron eQuilibrium EQ18 Chlorinator will automtically adjust to input the correct amount of sanitisation and pH levels required. Just add your MagnaPool magnesium every year (or as required) and away you go.

Please note, water should still be checked on a monthly basis.

Plunge Pool Products

Our plunge pool product range is designed specifically for use in plunge pools. Plunge pools are much larger than spas, but have different requirements to pools due to the pipework and jets. This is why we’ve designed a system that is cost efficient for the larger body of water, while also promoting strong and long lasting spa equipment.
