One of Thermospas proudest achievements when it comes to sanitizing our hot tubs is our one-of-a-kind ThermOzone Hot Tub Ozonator. This is an effective way to keep bacterias and chemicals out of your hot tub while reducing the amount of sanitizing chemicals such as chlorine or bromine. And its all used through a process which leaves no harmful by-products. To understand how our ThermOzone works, you first must understand the function of an Ozonator, and more importantly, ozone.
Ozone, first, is a natural way to purify water and air. Made up of three oxygen molecules, ozone has the capability neutralizing bacteria and allowing water and air to stay fresh. Almost 99% of all bottled water is filtered using ozone purifying methods. The best part of ozone purifying is that it leaves no harmful by-products which allows for a fully natural and safe way to clean air and water. When it comes to a hot tub, that’s quite helpful.
An Ozonator adds ozone to your hot tub water to help disinfect and sanitize. When adding ozone to the hot tub’s water, the third oxygen of ozone detaches from the ozone molecule and re-attaches to molecules of other substances, which then alters their chemical composition, neutralizing them, and deeming them harmless. Most Ozonator methods add ozone directly to the hot tub. While this works, it is ineffective in the way it is able to reach and sanitize all water. Thermospas has changed that.
ThermOzone is Thermospas patented Ozonator made specifically for Thermospas hot tubs to help sanitize your water. ThermOzone is an EPA approved over-sized ozonator that produces over 6000 mg of ozone per day and is safe for indoor use. Rather than pumping the ozone straight into the hot tub water which can potentially create an excess of “off-gas”, Thermospas employs a second vessel known as a Mixing Degas Vessel (MDV). The MDV helps safely mix ozone into the water. Ozone can only disinfect water that it comes in contact with, an MDV provides a concentrated area where the ozone can mix with water for a longer period of time. This allows for a more effective and efficient kind of sanitation. If any off-gas is produced, ThermOzone uses a third vessel known as a Charcoal Carbon Canister to filter the air and safely convert it back to oxygen.
Immediately after installing and using your ThermOzone, you’ll notice a difference in your hot tub’s water. The water will feel fresher as you’ll need to add less sanitizing chemicals. Though it is recommended that, even with an ozone system, that a 1-3 ppm sanitizer level still be maintained.
As well, your water will smell more pleasant. Ozone if often created during thunderstorms from the electrical discharge of lightning, so the scent is similar to that of a long rainfall. All of that will help your hot tub experience by helping you feel more calm and relaxed while resting under the soothing bubbles.
