Staphylococci – Staphylococcus aureus
Staphylococcus aureus occurs frequently in nature and is present in many people but normally does not break out other than in cases where the immune system has been weakened. Swim guests bring in staphylococcus aureus just like Candida albicans. With a size between 0.8 and 1.2µm, it can easily enter any sand (without flocculation) and deposit filter. Since the bacterium is gram positive, it can (like most microorganisms) be removed from the treatment cycle with optimized flocculation methods (silicic acid – aluminate).
