How It Works
When the pool pump is on, ambient air containing oxygen (O2) is drawn across our exclusively designed Ultra Violet lamps. The Ultra Violet emission breaks the oxygen molecules into individual oxygen atoms. These atoms combine with other oxygen molecules to form Ozone (O3).
The ozonated air is pulled into the pool water on the suction side of the pump as it operates. The impeller creates small bubbles and the Ozone is pressurized into the water in the pipe between the pump and the filter. The filter acts as a reaction vessel in which the Ozone breaks down organic compounds (lotions, oils, cosmetics, etc.) and alters ammonia compounds (urine and perspiration) making them unable to combine with and use up Chlorine.
Since the only element added by the Ozone generator is oxygen, no obnoxious compounds (like chloramines) are created, and many bi-products simply ‘gas off’.
