Water Quality Improvements with HydroFLOW
Our award winning HydroFLOW S38 and HS48 water conditioners provides a solution for the harmful effects of limescale, corrosion, bacteria, and algae in pools and spas. It works without chemicals or other additives for indoor and outdoor applications.
The S38 fits pipe sizes up to 1 ½” outside diameter. For water lines up to 2 ½” outside diameter, please refer to the HS48, which can manage high flow rates, while significantly improving filtration efficiency. The results are crystal clear water, while reducing chlorine and chemistry by more than 50% in most cases.
Reduction in Chlorine Use and the “POOL SMELL”
Chloramines are chlorine molecules that have bonded with ammonia and other compounds that people leave in the water. Chloramines are trapped chlorine that is less effective, yet has a strong chlorine odor and cause red eyes. HydroFLOW produces a sustained frequency that causes chloramine molecules to break apart, releasing the chloramines and converting them back to free chlorine. It eliminates the need for shock treatment, reduces the amount of chlorine that needs to be added and reduces the “swimming pool” smell.
Lime Scale Control
Limescale occurs when minerals dissolved in water get deposited on the surfaces of heaters, pipes, tiles and other areas as hard scale. It reduces the effectiveness of heaters and can damage them, and can also block pipes and valves, reduce water flow and impede valve functions. Removing limescale is a time consuming, expensive task that usually involves hazardous acid and chemical treatment. HydroFLOW technology prevents limescale without the use of chemicals by causing soft scale clusters to form in water that cannot attach to pipes, tiles or surfaces. These microscopic crystals are washed away by the water flow and removed by the filter.
Water Clarity and Filtration
HydroFlow causes clustering of small suspended particles that become large enough to be filtered, and are removed from the water during routine filtration. Pool and spa water becomes noticeably clearer cleaner within days rather than weeks. Your time is valuable and can be spent enjoying your pool and surroundings.
Main Benefits of using Hydropath Technology
- Controls bacteria and algae
- Prevents new limescale accumulation
- Dissolves and removes existing limescale
- Boosts filtration efficiency
Financial and Environmental Benefits
- Eliminates or decreases chlorine and chemical usage
- Reduces the usage of electricity
- Increases the efficiency and useful lives of pumps and equipment
- Decreases the need for chemical safety precautions, storage, and disposal
- Scale buildup on tiles will gradually disappear below the water line
- Propagates the Hydropath signal along the entire water system
- Provides 24-hour protection without interruptions or the need for monitoring
- Does not interfere with electric systems

Pool and Water Park Case Studies
HydroFlow controls bacteria and scale at swimming pools, water parks and spas without the use of chemicals. HydroFlow performance results in significant reduction of chlorine, and the frequency of backwashing. HydroFlow saves cost of chemicals, labor and repairs.
Significant improvement in Water Clarity in the Pool and Spa
A community pool installed HydroFLOW water conditioners to reduce chemical use, improve clarity, and control maintenance costs. They experienced positive results in the pool and spa, financially and esthetically. The return on investment was less than 12 months for their pool and water feature applications.
The Cleanest Pool in the Yakima Valley
Pool clarity and filtration improvements after one month from installation, with annual cost savings of more than 50%. Stepped chlorine and acid use down continuously due to the effectiveness of HydroFlow. The state inspector claimed that the pool was “the cleanest in the Yakima Valley”.
Water Clarity Improvement and Backwashing Reduction
A large hotel property in South Carolina had been unable to improve the clarity of what was called “the Ghost Pool”, and installed a HydroFlow. Within 3 days the clarity improved significantly and over time the chemical use was reduced significantly.
Cost Reduction of Chemicals, Filtration and Water
A Swiss community sports complex applied Hydropath technology to an indoor swimming pool to reduce chemical use and expense, and also experienced a significant reduction in filtration cycles and water costs.
80% Water and Chemical Cost Reduction
The water park maintains improved quality water with the continued use of the HydroFlow units. In addition to cost reductions for Water, Chlorine, Acid, Electricity and Natural Gas, the staff experienced an increase in the clarity of the pool water and a reduction in chlorine odor (chloramines).
Hydro-Treadmill Therapy Pool
A veterinary rehabilitation clinic uses two 1,000-gallon hydro-treadmill therapy pools for exercising 8-10 dogs per day that are undergoing rehabilitation. The hydrotherapy pools are supported by a sand filtration system (pool sized system), a dual-speed filtration pump and a booster pump for the jets. Due to water discoloration and bacteria fluctuations that chlorine was not adequately controlling, a HydroFlow was installed. The results have been clear water and low bacteria levels with significant reduction in chemicals and costs.
