Ball Cleaning Machine
Cleaning ball pools in the traditional way can be very time-consuming, requires a lot of people and a lot of patience. So the owners usually don’t, or on the rare occasions pay attention to their cleaning. Yet it very important, as protecting the health of children is the top priority. With the BBW-2020 ball cleaner, the cleaning of the balls will not be a problem anymore. The ball pool can be clean quick and simple and done just by one person.
For the usage and operation of the ball cleaning machine there’s no need for qualified crew or special technical conditions. Only a standard 230V electrical socket and a tap are needed, where the tank can be filled with water. In case these conditions are given, you have all you need for the machine to work.
Before usage, the user can decide which of the two modes will be selected. If the goal is just to collect the balls, then only the suction unit needs to be turned on on the machine, which releases the balls through the suction tube like a vacuum cleaner. If the balls need to be cleaned during collection, the first step is to fill the tank with water (80-100 liters) and then beside the suction unit the cleaning unit also needs to be started. In this cleaning mode, the balls become completely clean with a help of the water containing the special detergent and the rotating brush.
The balls – collected and cleaned - popping out of the machine are getting into a net bag, from which they can be easily poured back to the pool after cleaning and drying.
The first ball cleaning machine was launched in 1994. In the last 25 years it has undergone a number of developments from generation to generation. The primary aspect was to increase cleaning and collecting capacity. Besides, the designers aimed to make the machine easier to use with ergonomic solutions and to reduce the weight of the equipment significantly for easier moving. As a result of the improvements, the current BBW2020 model is the best cleaning machine on the market.
Unfortunately, there are currently no hygiene regulations in Hungary and most European countries that would recommend or require regular cleaning of balls in playhouses. Nevertheless, more and more responsible owners and operators are interested in the ball cleaning machine, as the health risks posed by dirty balls can be minimized by its usage.
According to a study by the IJselland Technical University in the Netherlands, using the BBW2020 model reduces the number of pathogens on the surface of balls by 75%, even if the ball cleaning machine is filled with clean water only without the use of any detergent or disinfectant. Further tests proved, that more than 95% of bacteria - including E. coli, MRSA, viruses, and fungi - were destroyed by adding detergents and disinfectants.
