Ozone is a naturally occurring gas in the earth’s atmosphere. This highly active form of oxygen (O3) is hundred of times more powerful and effective than chemical treatments such as chlorine. Ozone oxidizes urea and ammonia, responsible for the production of chloramines, as well as chloramines already present in the pool. This reduction in precursors also leads to reductions in trihalomethane (THMs) levels, the best known representative of which is chloroform.
Generated on site, Ozone dissolves in the water, eliminating all bacteria and viruses, leaving the water perfectly clear and bright, without bad odour or taste. All BIO-UV Group Ozone systems operate completely under vacuum, eliminating risk of gas leakage.
