Using Carbon Dioxide for pH Control in Swimming Pools


Carbon Dioxide (CO2) provides a natural, user-friendly alternative to mineral acids for the pH control in swimming pools.

Our Using Carbon Dioxide for pH Control in Swimming Pools training workshop provides essential gas safety awareness information to all personnel who use, or oversee the use of, CO2 in this application.

The training covers the operation of various supply systems, including bulk systems and gas cylinders.

The 2 hour instructor-led workshop is suitable for all staff using CO2 for pH control. It is also beneficial to managers, supervisors, Health & Safety Offciers and anyone responsible for the safe operation of CO2 systems.
