Ozone use is becoming more prolific as a booster device that will reduce the requirement for Chlorine to be used in swimming pools. Pools equipped with ozone units report a 24% to 75% reduction in chlorine demand. Ozone is short-lived, generally completely depleted within five minutes of introduction into the pool, but is highly effective in killing all unwanted pathogens in the water which come in contact with the ozone gas. Ozone is over 1000 times more effective at oxidizing bather waste than chlorine. The need for additional chemicals such as scale inhibitors, clarifiers, algaecides and degreasers are reduced substantially or eliminated in some cases and thus saves money! Overall maintenance time is decreased as well.
