Ozone for water sanitation is not only healthy but also environment friendly.

These units use the equivalent amount of electricity of a standard household light bulb and are extremely cost effective, not to mention the possible savings on chemicals and chlorine.

Success on swimming pools with ozone can be quite technical and requires an end to end combination of the correct selection of product that is properly installed. An incorrectly installed system will not work and we do not advise DIY installations. All DIY installations are done at own risk and any damage to equipment is not covered under warranty.

Basic unit sizing

For ozone to be effective on a swimming pool, the minimum sizing recommendation is 1g/h per 10 000 litres of swimming pool water, this also caters for variation in the amount of ozone generated by these units due to variances in altitude and climate. The maximum ozone output of units drawing ambient air will vary according to humidity, altitude and airflow. Another important factor is pump run time and a minimum pump run of 12 hours is recommended, but more hours are better. When your pump stops and the ozone generator switches off, there will be no sanitation on the pool. A decent pump run time is crucial to keeping your pool water sanitised and at the same time good for filtration to keep your water clear.  (Litre Calculation: Meters (L) x Meters (W) x Meters (D) = cubic meters x 1000 = Total Litres)

Note: Unit required will vary pending temperature, bather load, filtration system, pump run time etc. For more complex installations, we can provide contactor tanks with off gas systems as well as monitoring and control equipment with air preparation.

Ozone in swimming pools

Ozone is a highly oxidative product that is more powerful and quicker acting than any of its chemical comparatives such as chlorine or hydrogen peroxide and also known to kill bacteria types that the others cannot through normal safe levels of concentration. Ozone is especially effective in removing odours, precipitating iron and manganese, oxidizing organics as well as killing bacteria and sterilizing the water. It is safe to use and cost effective to operate. Ozone has been adopted by multiple municipal water sanitation plants worldwide and is becoming more and more the sanitizer of choice for swimming pools especially since the ban placed on the use of chlorine in multiple countries. Unlike other sanitizers, especially chlorine that leaves a residue of trihalomethanes implicated as carcinogens in the development of kidney, bladder and colon cancer, Ozone reacts with organic materials to break them down into simpler compounds that are not dangerous. Ozone is also good at breaking down harmful residues created by other sanitizers. There is lots of evidence available to prove that the use of ozone on swimming pools is far superior to the use of any other sanitizer, not to mention the added health benefits.
