  • Publication number: 20230080286
    Abstract: A system and method for controlling the accelerated remediation of the water of an aquatic facility using at least one sanitizer sensor, a pH sensor, a temperature sensor and a chlorine dioxide sensor all interfaced with a programmable controller that is programmed to implement an accelerated remediation cycle and configured to calculate a Ct value of the water chemical feed system. The programmable controller activates a chemical feed system to supply an acid, an oxidizer and a chlorite ion donor to a conduit to form chlorine dioxide that is supplied to the water until a desire Ct value is reached.

  • Patent number: 10981631
    Abstract: A boat hook assembly includes a clamping assembly, which is attachable to a pole. The clamping assembly includes a mechanical clamp in one embodiment and a magnetic clamp in another embodiment adapted to temporarily secure a boat hook which is configured to connect to a receiving member on a boat dock. The boat hook is configured to receive a boat line extending from the boat. The temporary securement of the boat hook by the clamping assembly is overcome by an operator moving the pole in a manner to release the clamping assembly from the boat hook, wherein the boat remains connected to the dock by the boat hook and the extended boat line. The boat hook assembly includes structural element and arrangements to prevent unintentional release of the clamping assembly from the boat hook.

  • Publication number: 20200239340
    Abstract: A method and composition for reducing halogenated decomposition byproducts and precursors of the byproducts in the water and air of an aquatic facility. The composition contains a water soluble metal-porphyrin catalyst that accelerates oxidation of the halogenated decomposition byproducts and their precursors. The catalyst remains stable and only requires replenishment relative to the makeup water added to the treated aquatic facility. The average time interval of replenishment can be measured in weeks or months.
