Health Benefits of Ozone Filters in Florida Swimming Pools

health benefits ozone filtersOzone filters create sparkling clean, healthy, chemical free swimming pool environments. Ozone (O3) is an extremely reactive gas that is composed of three Oxygen Atoms. It is created naturally by sunlight and lighting. Commercially, it is created by using a spark on very dry air.  Ozone reacts quickly with organic and artificial compounds that are easily oxidized including sweat, urine, mold, algae, bacteria, viruses, lotion, oil from our bodies.

Ozone has been used as a sanitizer for 100 years.

Benefits Of Using An Ozone Filtration System In Your Swimming Pool

  • Ozone works 2000 times faster than chlorine.
  • It is more than 100x stronger than chlorine.
  • But – it has only ½ the life.
  • It is among the safest and strongest oxidizing agents used for sanitation.
  • Ozone breaks down and reverts back to its natural state – Oxygen (O2).
  • Along with chlorine, it meets government standards and improves performance.

Swimming pool owners can spend more time in their pool and less time cleaning, or waiting for the pool chemicals to balance. Sometimes even weekly pool maintenance isn’t enough to prevent problems like green and black algae, bacteria, chemical problems, equipment not working right, bad odors, chlorine smell, and health problems.
