Swimming pool water must undergo treatment, in order to remain clear and clean, free from harmful substances, bacteria, viruses, algae and other pathogens and suitable for use by swimmers.
The Ozone pool will be much cleaner, which means dirt, grease, oils, organics and other materials will wind up in the filter system much faster than with chlorinated systems. That is why, proper maintenance of the filter system is important.
Ozone systems have been in regular use in Europe and other areas of the world since the 1950’s, pools here have generally relied on chlorine.
Benefits of ozone for swimming pools include:
-No chlorine smell
– Ozone oxidizes organic and inorganic matter without forming byproducts such as chloramines (which are responsible for chlorine smell)
– Decrease in Chlorine use
– saves money on cost of chemicals on the long term
-Healthier swimming water
-water quality will be safer and healthier for active pool users and swimmers
-Ozone has no toxic or harmful residues in comparison to chlorine which is known to create residues (Chloramine, THM etc.)
-Increased Filtration Efficiency
– Biodegradation rate of natural organic matter is increased, large molecules are diminished into smaller molecules which can be decomposed by the pool filter more easily
-Ozone prevents clogging and and increases filter capacity
-Ozone will prevent eye irritation
-Ozone will not discolor bathing suits
We recommend selecting ozone generator according to the German DIN 19643 norms. In these norms amongst others a temperature dependent ozone dose is used.
We recommend for chemical free pool residual ozone concentration of 0.03ppm – 0.05ppm.
For swimming pools with a water temperature of 28°C or 33 – 35°C an ozone dosage of respectively 0.8 and 1.2 gram per m3 is used.
