Abstract

In this research the application of Nanosil containing hydrogen peroxide and silver was studied in disinfecting swimming pool water and it's Environment. The effect of the disinfectant on Candida albicans   check for this species in other resources (ATCC No. 10231), Aspergillus niger   check for this species in other resources (ATCC No. 16404), Pseudomonas aeruginosa   check for this species in other resources (ATCC No. 9027), Serratia marcescens   check for this species in other resources (PTCC No. 1111), Klebsiella pneumoniae   check for this species in other resources (ATCC No. 10031) and Staphylococcus aureus   check for this species in other resources (ATCC No. 29737) ) was evaluated. The main objective of this experiment was to determine the effective dose of Nanosil which could be used for disinfecting the environment of swimming pools and other surface area. Then, the effectiveness of Nanosil was studied in two private and one public swimming pools. Heterotrophic plate count, thermotolerant coliforms, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Staphylococcus aureus were monitored as the target microorganisms in disinfection practice According to the result of this study, it is recommended to apply the Nanosil with the concentration of >3% (30000 mg/L) for contact time of 30 min or more for practical disinfection in swimming pools environment. The application of Nanosil in real conditions of two private and one public swimming pools indicated that the acceptable microbial quality is also achievable if the disinfectant residual concentration would be as high as 20 mg/L in swimming pool water.
