4 Reasons You Should Add an Ozone Generator to Your Spa


Never heard of ozone generators? You're not alone. An ozone generator sounds like some device out of science fiction, but it's actually something that can be fitted to your spa. Essentially, an ozone generator uses intense UV light to split molecules of oxygen into individual free oxygen atoms. These will then combine with other oxygen molecules to produce a molecule made from three oxygen atoms instead of two. These three oxygen atom molecules are ozone.

Yes, it's a little confusing, but you don't need to understand how the science works. What you should take on board are the following four compelling benefits that come with adding this spa part to your spa.

1. Cleaner Water

Ozone is an extremely powerful oxidant, meaning that it helps kill a whole bunch of nasties that may infest the water in your spa. We're talking about bacteria, viruses and algae. It's also an extremely effective flocculant – this means that it can dissolve mineral build-up and dirt from your water. Overall, using an ozone generator can drastically improve the quality of your spa water.

2. Improved Water Clarity

It isn't just the quality of water that can be improved using an ozone generator. In fact, using one can also improve the clarity of your water. This is because the oxygen created as a by-product of ozone will dissolve in your spa's water, and that process creates a brilliant sparkle. You'll be surprised by just how much clearer and more attractive the water looks after installing an ozone generator.  

3. Reduced Maintenance

Let's get one thing out of the way: an ozone generator will not entirely replace the need for other spa sanitiser chemicals, such as chlorine and bromide. That said, an ozone generator can dramatically reduce the need for such sanitisers. This means that your water will last a lot longer between refills, and you'll also save money on chemicals. Equipment life can be prolonged, and you simply won't need to spend as much time taking care of maintenance. Additionally, people tend to dislike the smell created by common spa chemicals, and this is a create chance to reduce them.

4. Less Irritation

With the need to use chlorine, bromide, and other chemicals reduced, you'll find that skin and eye irritation becomes less of a problem. This is nice for everyone, but it's particularly advantageous for those with sensitive skin or those who suffer from allergies.

Making Sure Your Pool is Clean

Hello! My name is Peter but my friends call me 'Swimming Pool Pete'. This is because of my new obsession - my swimming pool. I had a new swimming pool installed in my backyard last summer. My family and I had a fantastic time swimming around in the pool all summer long. When the weather became cold and the leaves began to fall, I covered the pool and went inside. However, on the first day of spring, I was devastated to discover that the water in my pool had turned green. I called a pool guy who came over and he explained I needed to add chemicals to the pool to maintain the water quality over the winter months. I asked this man a million questions and I have taught myself everything there is to know about pool care.
