Ozonator tips and installation instructions

Ozone's practical use as a water purifier was discovered in the late 1800's in the Netherlands. Its first large-scale use was the installation of an ozone purification plant for the city of Nice, France in 1906. Today, more than thirty countries use ozone systems to purify drinking water. In fact, the city of Los Angeles has installed one of the largest ozone water treatment plants in the world, processing more than 74 millions gallons of water per day.

Ozone is a very effective natural water purifier that is lethal to bacteria, viruses, and contaminants without harming people and equipment. There are just a few Rules of Thumb that you should follow. Take the time to learn these simples rules and you will have no trouble maintaining a clear, clean spa that will provide you years of enjoyment.

Always maintain the following spa water operating parameters when using ozone.

pH: 7.2 to 7.8
Total alkalinity: 80 to 120 PPM
Chlorine: 1.0 PPM (optional)
Bromine: 2.0 PPM (optional)
Weekly: add a non-chlorine shock

Operate your spa for the minimum time according to the following chart. For best results, and to minimize chlorine or bromine use, you may operate your spa in the low-speed mode 24 hours per day (recommended).

Operating Time

Up to 250
Over 500

4-6 hours
8-10 hours
12-18 hours

Benefits of Using Ozone:

  • Safe to skin
  • Kills all bacteria and viruses
  • Does not effect pH
  • Costs pennies per day to operate
  • Won't fade clothing or discolor hair
  • Crystal clear water
  • No chlorine or bromine odors
  • Removes all contaminates
  • Safe for the environment

FINAL NOTE: Ozone is introduced into the water via the low speed (filter) mode. It is recommended that it runs on a 24 hour cycle, although, it can operate on the timer mode as well. You may have to keep a chlorine or bromine reserve when operating in this mode. The 24 hour cycle mode will not only cut back your chlorine or bromine use, but may replace it all together. It is still recommended you use a non-chlorine shock once a week, or whenever there is heavy bather use.
