Ozone systems for Hot Tub and Pool

The importance of Ozone within a hot Tub and Pool system is under-estimated. Ozone is a powerful oxidizer that sanitizes water and air. Most commonly used for sanitizing water, ozone is more powerful than chlorine. Ozone works by penetrating the cells and damaging the DNA of the bacteria or virus.

While chlorine can be effective at killing most disease-causing pathogens, such as bacteria, viruses and protozoans it is ineffective at killing Cryptosporidium.

The Cryptosporidium (Crypto) parasite is one of the most frequent causes of waterborne disease and is most commonly spread through recreational water (pools, water parks, etc.) Ozone is more effective than chlorine, chloramines, and chlorine dioxide for inactivation of viruses, Cryptosporidium, and Giardia.

Unlike chlorine, ozone leaves no harmful byproducts because the byproduct is oxygen!

Ozone is created naturally in the environment during thunderstorms. The electric charge created by lightning converts the oxygen in the air into ozone. We, at Aqua Sun Ozone, create ozone using the same principle - we utilize a very high electric charge to convert oxygen into ozone.

This ozone is then bubbled, or injected, into water and used to sanitize the water in your Hot Tub or Pool.

Please remember that you will still need to use a Chlorine or Bromine sanitizer in your Hot tub or Pool as part of your weekly maintenance program
