The authors of the study attempted to determine the fraction of selected impurities in the filter backwash water from the pool circuit (hot tub). Ultrafiltration membranes were used for the separation process. The main parameter informing about the content of impurities in a given fraction was total carbon (including the total organic carbon). In the studies, fractions with the following sizes of > 200 kDa, 50–200 kDa, < 50 kDa were separated. The fraction distribution in > 5 kDa and < 5kDa was also analyzed. The percentage content of inorganic carbon and total organic carbon changed depending on the ultrafiltration membrane with different distribution characteristics. The concentration of total organic carbon decreased gradually with a decrease in the MWCO value of the membrane. On the basis of the total carbon value, it was found that the tested washings contained: 30.40 wt.% of > 200 kDa fraction, 55.62 wt.% of fraction in the range of 50–200 kDa and 13.98 wt.% of fraction < 50kDa.
