As a pool owner, you are all too aware of the constant needs for chlorine pool care. Your regimen might look like this: check the chemical balance two to three times on a weekly basis, add chemical as needed, keep the pool interior clean, and ensure that the filtration system is working properly. You frequently question if there is a way to simplify pool upkeep while retaining pool cleanliness. If you've been thinking about pool upkeep, it might be time to consider looking into ozone pool systems.
What is Pool Ozone? Ozone is gas made up of three oxygen atoms that is both man-produced and naturally occurring in the Earth's upper and lower atmospheres. Because ozone is an oxidant, it can chemically eliminate pollutants in water, making it a highly effective agent for pool treatment. Unlike traditional sanitizers, ozone is administered to the water within the circulation system and returns to the pool in small concentration. Because ozone can be hazardous in large amounts, it must be created and dissolved in water as soon as possible. Because ozone is an unpredictable gas, it cannot be kept or transported and must be generated on-site with an ozone generator.
How do Ozonators Work? Ozone generators, also known as ozonators, sterilise pool water as it circulates through the pool's system. Ozonators generate ozone using two types of generators: corona discharge and UV light. To understand how both works, remember that oxygen includes two oxygen atoms (O2), whereas ozone contains three (O3). Corona Discharge Corona discharge ozonators establish an environment for ozone formation by splitting the oxygen (O2) molecules in the air into individual atoms using a ring of energy produced by high voltage electrical discharge. The isolated oxygen molecules re-join the O2 molecules in the air, creating ozone (O3). Ultraviolet Light UV ozone generators break the oxygen molecules that pass across them into individual atoms by using a UV lamp generating light at 185 nanometers. The isolated oxygen atoms rearrange into ozone molecules to stabilise.
After ozone is produced by a corona discharge ozonator or an ultraviolet light generator, it must be dissolved in water to sterilise and destroy pollutants such as bacteria, viruses, and parasites. Ozone dissolution is generally accomplished through a technique known as venturi injection, in which pressurised water is utilized to create a vacuum, drawing new ozone into the pool water as it disperses throughout the system.
