What Exactly is Ozone Sanitisation?
18 April, 2021
Ozone sanitisation is an environmentally friendly choice for pools and spas. Ozone Swim harnesses a naturally occurring and powerful process that is up to 3,000 more powerful than traditional purification systems.
Ozone sanitisation is a forward-thinking healthier way to clean your pool water. It is the ideal solution for people who have skin irritations, suffer allergies, sensitivities to harsh chemicals, itchy eyes as well as the health and wellness conscious. The Ozone Swim system is unique because it is the only product on the market that combines the power of ozone with mineral/salt water to create the ultimate pool water experience.
Many people misunderstand what ozone purification is and how it works to improve pool water quality. Ozone is a naturally occurring oxidizer that protects the planet used to sanitise both air and water. How this works in your pool is when the ozone is injected into the water it neutralises any organic contaminant instantly and converts it back to oxygen by the time the water is returned to the pool body. This makes the pool water feel soft and therapeutic whilst creating a more hygienic and odour free swimming experience.
An ozone unit not only are you providing a healthier swimming experience for you and your loved ones, but it is the environmentally friendly and sustainable option. In addition to reducing chlorine levels by up to 80%, ozone purification effectively destroys impurities, bacteria and viruses at the same time as oxygenating the water. Ozone Swim systems are also remarkable because it destroys chlorine by-products (chloramines) and chlorine resistant parasites such as Cryptosporidium. Chloramines are the the nasties that cause eye, skin and respiratory irritations.
What sets Ozone Swim apart from other ozone products is it harnesses the benefits of ozone, but also acknowledges there is still a role for chlorine. Because ozone breaks down quickly, it is important to have a low level of residual disinfectant: chlorine. The Maytronics ozonators can be added to an existing chlorination system, or we can replace your system with the 'Total Solution'. There is no need to change anything else such as your filter or pump.
