Why do I need an ozonator?



Ozonators are fitted to spas for a reason, they have a job to do like any other part of the spa and that job is to help to ensure that your spa is safe to use by creating a base level of sanitation within the water. Also you will notice that the demand for chemicals will be  less which in turn will save you maintenance time not to mention money.



Ozone, sometimes referred to as energetic oxygen, is a powerful oxidizer of contaminants in water. It is made available for hot tubs and spas through the use of ozone generators called ozonators. Ozone is formed when three atoms of oxygen are bound together, instead of the normal two. If you have ever detected a faint, sweet smell in the air after a lightning storm, that was ozone!


  • Reduces need for high chemical doses
  • Helps destroy bacteria, viruses, algae, yeasts
  • Oxidizes other contaminants
  • Reduces odor and chloramines
  • Prolongs equipment life
  • Reduces maintenance time & cost

   Ozone purifies naturally


On the Molecular Level - How Ozone is Made

Ozone for a spa is formed when individual molecules of oxygen are split apart into two free oxygen atoms by intense UV light, or alternately by corona discharge (CD) in an ozonator.  When a newly freed oxygen Atom collides with another oxygen molecule, it joins up, forming ozone. The new ozone molecule consists of three oxygen atoms, instead of the customary two. It is a strong oxidizer, but since it does not last long it needs to be continuously replenished by the ozone generator running at least 4-6 hours per day to dissolve effective amounts in the hot tub's water.

Ozone is a much stronger oxidizer of contaminates than plain oxygen because the extra oxygen atom is loosely bound. It breaks loose when it comes in contact with organic material or other contaminants, oxidizing and thereby destroying them in the process.


Other Benefits

Ozone also oxidizes soap, deodorant, hair spray, cologne, makeup, perfume, body lotion, hand cream, sun tan lotion, saliva, and urine. Used in concert with your sanitizer, ozone helps kill pathogenic bacteria, germs, and viruses and helps to oxidize organic contaminants. Ozone frees up combined chlorine and bromine, thus freeing them to be continuously reused. Ozone ultimately enhances the performance of chlorine and bromine as well as alternative sanitizer systems.


Less chlorine or bromine may be needed to maintain a residual. The quality of water will be dramatically better with the combination of ozone and chlorine or bromine than with chlorine or bromine alone.

The ozone not only destroys microorganisms, it also breaks down harmful chemicals, and causes total dissolved solids to clump together for easier removal by the filter. The result is water which is cleaner, clearer, and smoother feeling to the skin.


Ozone also helps prevent the calcium in spa water from chelating, and thus conditions the water. This is for equipment and more enjoyable for you. Many people say that the water actually feels softer to the skin!
