  • Aquazone Ozone Pool Questions and Answers

        FAQ’s  on  Ozone  in  Pools  and  Spas ( AQUAZONE OZONE GENERATORS) Q1.  Why  ozonise  /  ozonate  my  pool  or  spa? 1. a.  Generally  pool  owners  who  are  concerned  about  harmful  effects  of  chlorine  will  be interested  in  converting  from  chlorine  or  chemicals  systems  and/or  salt  chlorinators. In  particular  heated  pools  or  spas  with  chlorine  disinfectant  systems  can  be  harmful as  the  skin  pores  open  up  with  the  warm  water  and  chlorine  can  be  ingested  in  to  the ` body. Health  authorities  in  first  world  countries  insist  on  a  residual  level  of  2.5  to  3  ppm  ( parts  per  million)  chlorine  in  public  pools  for  effective  sanitation.  At  these  levels  the chlorine  smell  is  very  evident  and  uncomfortable  and  unhealthy  to  many…even  if  the water  is  sanitised!  By  including  ozone  in  the  circulation  system  it  is  possible  to  bring the  levels  of  chlorine  down  to  a  much  safer  1  ppm  and  the  water  is  sanitised  and  safe for  bathing. Competitive  or  regular  swimmers  will  often  refuse  to  swim  in  a  chlorinated  pool  and Olympic  and  Municipal  pools  are  generally  ozonated  for  this  reason. Dependingupon  the  cost  of  electricity  or  chemicals  and  the  amount  of circulation/pumping  time,  ozonated  systems  will  be  cost  effective  once  the  capital costs  are  amortised  after  2  or  3  years.   Q2.  What  size  unit  do  I  need  for  my  pool.   2. Sizing  depends  upon  many  factors Runningtime  and  output  of  the  circulation  pump.  Generally  speaking  if  the  pump output  is  1000  litres  per  hour  1  gram  an  hour  of  ozone  will  be  sufficient  to sanitise  the  passing  stream. Temperatureof  water.  (  the  colder  the  better). Amountof  bathers  in  the  pool. Capabilityor  effectiveness  of  the  ozone  gas  induction  and  mixing  system.  (A  1000 mg/hr  ozone  generator  with  an  efficient  mixing  system  could  be  as  effective  as  a  5000 mg/hr  generator  and  an  inefficient  mixing  system).  Ozone,  being  a  gas,  must  be effectively  introduced  in  to  the  water  flow  using  a  venturi  and  then  thoroughly  mixed with  the  water  before  entering  the  pool. There  should  be  sufficient  contact  time  for  the  ozone  to  mix  with  the  water  and  to react  before  entering  the  pool.  (  The  longer  the  better). Actualoutput  of  the  ozone  generator. Systems  using  atmospheric  air  as  the  feedgas  will  provide  lower  outputs  at  high humidity. The  airflow  determined  by  the  venturi  must  match  the  ozone  generator.  (  Aquazone systems  generally  require  between  3  and  5  litres  of  air  per  minute). The  venturi  suction  is  affected  by  the  cleanliness  of  the  filter  or  back  pressure  caused by  a  connected  self  cleaning  vacuum  system. Amountof  chemicals  used  by  the  owner. If  the  pump  is  not  running  24  hours  per  day,  chemicals  will  be  required  to  provide  a residual  control  whilst  the  ozone  is  not  being  introduced. Depending  upon  the  shape  of  the  pool  it  may  be  necessary  to  introduce  chemicals  in various  corners  where  circulation  of  the  water  does  not  occur. […]
