Ozone = Delicious Water

Ozone is wonderful stuff!

In my opinion, Chlorine or Bromine with Ozone is the best water quality you can get.

Now that I understand pool water chemistry better and how incredibly good pool and spa water can be, I wouldn’t use anything else. For instance, I know now that it was ammonia/chlorine compounds that hurt my eyes while on the swim team years ago and not “Free Chlorine” by itself.

Things have changed since the seventies. Chlorine and Ozone paired together makes for terrific water! This is what the best pools in the world are using-  just ask the olypmpic swimmers

Ozone brief- What it is and what it does:

1) Ozone oxidizes or “burns up” organic matter.

2) Ozone rids pool or spa of ammoniaAmmonia combines with chlorine to form the obnoxious eye and mucus membrane irritants most often attributed [incorrectly] to chlorine. Manage the ammonia and your water quality increases dramatically. The best way to get water that is both pure and sweet is to pair your sanitizer with an ozone generator system.

3) Ozone is NOT a sanitizer. It is an oxidizer- I often explain it this way: “Your sanitizer kills bacterias, viruses and plant life… ozone burns up the dead bodies…”

4) The right unit for your pool or spa- Ozone generators, like most equipment, must be properly sized and selected for your pool or spa. Some of these units will not work if installed where equipment is below water level. Be sure your service company selects the right unit for YOUR system.

Example of a popular ozone generator. 

When employed with a reliable sanitizer like chlorine or bromine, ozone gives you superior water quality- water that delights the senses rather than irritating them.
