Swimming pool maintenance at Spreewaldplatz

The bath at Spreewaldplatz in Berlin-Kreuzberg is a popular family leisure pool directly at Görlitzer Park. It is equipped with a wave pool, non-swimmers' pool, children's pool with slide and wellness facilities. For swimmers, there is a 25-meter lane.

After 30 years there is a lot to renovate. The beautiful natural stone is heavily calcified due to the hard water in Berlin. The lime removal can hardly be done with conventional means. Here a basic cleaning is needed, in which these lime deposits are completely removed.

In the swimming pool, cleaning should be done without chemicals if possible. Limescale removal during operation is desirable, as closure is associated with enormous loss of revenue. 

Pool cleaning - limescale removal

The systeco cleaning technology is the right solution for basic cleaning in the swimming pool. With the vacuum blasting technology the employees can do the lime removal by themselves. The handling of the cleaning machine can be learned in a few minutes. In addition, the vacuum blasting technology is climate and CO2 neutral.

Limescale and dirt are removed from the surface without damaging it. The removed lime deposits remain in the closed system. The vacuum blasting process separates the dirt from the granules. As a result, the abrasive can be used again and again in the cycle.

Limestone completely removed

The lime deposits on the natural stone slabs have become quite thick and unsightly over the years. For testing purposes, a natural stone plate was completely cleaned, as you can see well in the photos. The lime is completely removed and the stone shines like new again.

The cleaning of natural stone is done by the vacuum blast method. Because of the closed circulation, no abrasive can penetrate to the outside. Barriers and special safety measures are therefore not required for this type of work. Anyone can easily operate the cleaning machine. But the surface that needs to be treated has to be dry.
