Swim Pace Clocks – Swimmer’s Best Friend

October 14, 2019 - Recreonics

As any competitive swimmer knows, swim pace clocks are an essential piece of equipment for aquatic sports. Swim pace clocks allow a swimmer to monitor their training pace, create a target time that they want to achieve, and repeat swims or intervals. No swim practice is complete without a pace clock because they are key to improved endurance and speed.

When Competitor Swim redesigned their swim pace clocks two years ago, they paid extra attention to visibility and durability. With the best interest of swimmers in mind, Competitor Swim designed their new pace clock faces so the swimmer would be able to easily see the numbers - particularly the quarter numbers - for training, pace, and rest purposes. Quarter numbers on pace clocks are the primary numbers used in competitive swim training and are the most important for competition. Swimmers need easy and quick visibility of the numbers to enhance their training and lead to better times overall. Continue Reading about Swim Pace Clocks...

Advantages of Blue-White Peristaltic Metering Pumps

June 11, 2019 - Recreonics

Today’s commercial swimming pools have a plethora of pumps and heavy machinery in their equipment rooms to ensure efficient maintenance. Chief among this pool equipment are chemical feeders. Properly balanced water chemistry is essential for the health and safety of not only your guests, but also your aquatics facility. In addition to chemical controllers and water testing equipment, you will want to make sure that your pool has the best chemical metering pump.

Chemical metering pumps offered by Blue-White are peristaltic pumps, which use rotary motion to move the fluid through tubing. These kinds of chemical metering pumps are precise and ideal for moving sterile or aggressive chemicals because they limit contamination as the chemical moves through the pump. All peristaltic chemical metering pumps from Blue White are self-priming, even against maximum line pressure. And, by-pass valves are not required since peristaltic pumps cannot experience the vapor lock caused by off-gassing, a common problem for diaphragm pumps.

Off-gassing occurs when liquid chlorine aerated by the action of pumping creates bubbles that transfer to the inner walls of the diaphragmatic pump and valves. This creates an air lock that impedes fluid from flowing through the pump, even if the pump appears to be functioning normally. Peristaltic pumps do not expereince this issue due to their rotary design, which moves the liquid via compression of the tube and the pushing motion of the rollers.
