Your spa or hot tub ozonator is one of the most critical parts of your hot tub water maintenance. To keep that pure, clear “feel good” water you want to experience in your hot tub, you need to make sure your ozonator is working to its full capacity.
The spa ozonator is an ozone generator that injects dissolved ozone into the spa water where it is one of the most powerful oxidizing disinfectants on earth, yet virtually undetectable by human touch. This natural form of oxygen combines with organic matter of all kinds to kill or neutralize it. Ozone is 200 times more powerful than chlorine and up to 99.99% effective against bacteria and viruses that lurk in a hot tub. As an added benefit, the only byproduct of ozone is ordinary oxygen – no chemical residues.
Ozonators Wear Out
What many spa owners do not realize is that the ozonator can wear out, just like tires on your car. Most ozonators will last about 3 years, and then begin to fail, sometimes almost over night. Without the sanitizing power of the ozone, organic matter can build up quickly, and water quality deteriorates. Many owners try to compensate for this by adding more and more chemicals, sometimes creating chemistry imbalances that can even result in hot tub rash.
Replacement Hot Tub Ozonators Bring the Water Back
Replacing a worn ozonator is a simple matter. Many hot tub owners can do it themselves, or your spa technician can handle it very quickly. The impact on your spa water will be immediate.
Testing the Ozone Generator
DEL Ozone manufactures an ozone test kit that quickly determines if the ozonator is making sufficient ozone. If not, a replacement is warranted. Your spa technician can use the maintenance call to check the ozone check valve, tubing and other important components to keep your spa working properly. For a small investment, you can recover the pleasurable hot tub water you want.
