Topic: Bather load


  
  The Pools Factor: Does Your Community Have Enough Space?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
The average combined bather load for the communities in the study was 1,092.
Bather load divided by population yields a percentage that shows the portion of a community able to use the community's pools at any given time.
Bather Load as a Percentage of Population (BLPP) ranged from 0.4% (Harvey Park District) to 14.8% (Palos Heights Recreation Department).

Bather loads of this size require constant monitoring of disinfectant levels and the use of automatic chlorinators and pH/ORP controllers to.
Bather loads during weekends were typically high and the swim area lacked any appreciable circulation.
It was theorized that the outbreak was caused by direct bather contamination of the swim area which was caused by heavy bather load, inadequate restroom facilities, poor water exchange, and the absence of disinfection.

One bather per 15 square feet of surface area in portions of the pool that are 5 feet deep or less.
When bathers leave the pool and the water level drops, water from the surge tank is pumped back into the pool.
Because bathers are likely to use the pool or spa immediately after servicing, it is important to make sure chemicals are not lingering in harmful concentrations at any point in the water.

 PA Bulletin, Doc. No. 02-1633
The Department is proposing definitions for ''bather,'' ''bather load,'' ''maximum bather load,'' and ''rope and float line'' that are derived from established definitions adopted by the National Spa and Pool Institute.
The proposed rulemaking includes a provision that provides the pool owner/operator with the option to close portions of the water surface area with a rope and float line during periods when the bather load is low in comparison to the size of the pool.
Maximum bather load--The maximum number of bathers that the recreational swimming establishment is designed to accommodate, as defined in the plans and specifications submitted as part of the permit application using the guidelines set forth in the Department's publication, Public Bathing Place Manual.

 Welcome to Taylor Technologies
While pools are generally in the 78° to 84° F range, spas run 96° to 104° F. Hot water, coupled with jet action, encourages the release of organic wastes and bacteria growth.
The load of organic wastes creates a high sanitizer demand, the amount of sanitizer needed to react with all contaminants before any disinfecting residual is available.
To protect bathers and minimize the cost of operation, it’s essential for owners and operators to understand the unique aspects of spa maintenance.

 PA Bulletin, Doc. No. 05-8
The Department believes that it is essential to ensure the safety of the bathers that there is a certified lifeguard available to act as a backup in the event that an emergency or other event occurs that removes the sole certified lifeguard from protecting the bathers.
These stakeholders considered a standard based on bather load to be unfeasible, especially for the operators of large recreational swimming establishments and the water park industry.
The complete definition of ''bather'' in the proposed rulemaking is, ''Any person using a recreational swimming establishment in the water or adjoining deck area for the purpose of swimming, water sports, or other recreational activity.'' This definition was taken from the National Spa and Pool Institute.

 Cover Story
Again, many factors need to be considered here, but if it is a small portable spa with a bather load of two or three, the homeowner can likely handle it if he or she is watchful and safety-conscious.
This depends on the size of the spa and the average daily bather load.
For example, with a 500-gallon hot tub that has a daily bather load of two, you would divide 500 by 3 and get 166.66.

 Key To Clean And Clear Spa and Hot tub Water
Once the floater is loaded with approximately 4 to 6 tablets it is then set in the water and is distributed through erosion.
Remember because of the high temperatures and heavy bather loads, spas require higher sanitizer levels, as well as heavier oxidizer doses to eliminate bather waste and maintain clear, sparkling water.

 FAQ
Pools with small bather loads will use up fewer chemicals than those with large bather loads and, of course, pools with covers that are closed after each use also will hang onto their chemical residuals much longer.

 Pool Care
Other factors, such as climate and bather load, and poor water chemistry will add these invaders to your pool.
The chlorine level must be closely watched, as it will fluctuate due to climate and bather load, and the constant introduction and reintroduction of bacteria, living organisms, ammonia, and other contaminates to your pool water.
This is why chlorine levels must be tested and adjusted often –2 to 3 times per week under normal conditions and use, and almost daily during periods of high heat and humidity, as well as after any rainfall, winds, or heavy bather loads.

A common load in a spa would have one person in 100 to 400 gallons of water.
Consider this: two bathers in a 400-gallon spa are roughly equivalent to 150 people in a 30,000-gallon pool.
A common standard for public spas is one bather per one square meter of surface area.

Many other contaminants added by bathers are also difficult for ozone to oxidize.
I must mention one last reason why you should not rely solely on ozone to care for spa water: Ozone generators put out a fixed amount of ozone regardless of the bather load, and this may not be enough to keep up with the biological load.
A high bather load may use up the chlorine or bromine residual right away as well, but you can always add some extra chlorine or bromine to take care of the additional contamination.

 Spa Maintanence
In the case of a commercial spa that may handle an average of 25 bathers a day, the amount of TDS from human sweat alone could be as much as 50 ppm every day.
And don't forget, bathers also bring with them residual soap, deodorant, hair spray, suntan lotion, body oil, hair gel, laundry detergent, hand lotion, cosmetics and other personal-care substances - all of which can contribute to the build up of TDS.
For example, a 1,200-gallon commercial spa with an average bather load of 25 people a day should be drained after 16 days of use:

However, let's say it's a basic pool wherein the filtration runs 10 hours a day, the pool is outdoors, the bather load is normal, and the weather is pretty average.
If your pool runs less than 10 hours a day, the bather load is high, and the weather is hot/humid, step it up to a Total Eclipse 4.
If the pool is indoor, or runs more than 10 hours a day, you could comfortable stay with the Eclipse 4 or Total Eclipse 2, and may even be able to reduce the size to a regular Eclipse 2.
