Chemistry plays an important role in the health of swimming pool water. Whether it’s bromine, biguanide, minerals or chlorine, correct levels are important for an enjoyable experience. Adding ozone to the mix has been proven to reduce chemical usage by up to 95% in our customers. Decrease reliance on irritating chemicals and save money in the long run with the use of all-natural ozone.  

Benefits of Ozone:

  • Ozone is an all-natural sanitizer
  • Ozone is the most powerful sanitizer for pools and spas
  • Ozone kills 99.9% of bacteria on contact.
  • Ozone is 200 times more powerful than chlorine alone
  • Oxygen is the only byproduct of ozone
  • No chemical odor
  • Ozone is maintenance free

But isn’t ozone dangerous?

When used correctly, ozone is a safe and effective way to treat swimming pool and spa water. Ozone has been used as a means of water treatment for over 100 years! Ozone is composed of three oxygen atoms. When ozone gas is introduced to an environment with bacteria, mold or any other organic material, it readily donates one of the oxygen atoms to oxidize or destroy that material.

Ozone can also oxidize some inorganic materials like calcium and arsenic and a number of trace metals, such as iron. Once the third oxygen atom is used to oxidize an organic or inorganic contaminant, there is only an oxygen (O2) molecule left. This is one reason why ozone is preferred as an oxidant to various chemicals, because it does not leave any type of residual chemical. Ozone provides better water quality and oxidizes many contaminants that bromine cannot.

Algae Control

With that being said, the use of ozone does not completely eliminate the need for chlorine or another alternative sanitizer. These secondary sanitizers are necessary to kill algae. Ozone can reduce the need for other chemical usage by up to 95%. To make up for the extra 5-10%, depending on your pool and weather conditions, there are a variety of methods pool owners can turn to.  Some prefer using salt in combination with ozone, others prefer bromine or chlorine (at very small levels, around 1-2ppm).

Ozone only lasts in pool water for a short period of time 11 to 30 minutes, therefore in order to provide lasting protection during times when ozone is not being injected, to control algae and ammonia, you must maintain a small residual of bromine in the water. The longer the ozone system operates, the less bromine you will have to use to maintain water quality. Ozone will kill algae at the point of injection, not algae that is already growing on the pool walls. Our recommended dosage for sodium bromide is 20g per 1000 liters of water every 6 months.
