Natural Pools Australia Ozone Water Sanitisation

Amazing Scientific Sanitation properties of Ozone & Colloidal Silver

Ozone O3 (Ozone is oxygen O2 with an extra oxygen molecule attached to it)  
This extra Oxygen molecule has the ability to pass intracellular into your blood stream and into your cells where it floods your body with the healing affects of Oxygen.

Ozone kills bacteria, algae, viruses & fungi 5000 times faster than chlorine, it is one of the most powerful oxidisers and sanitisers known to man.

Ozone saturates the water with high levels of oxygen.
Ozone is Ph neutral therefore maintaining water chemistry balances is far easier.
Ozone gives a crystal bluish tint to the water and saturates the water with millions of micro bubbles that are visible to the eye.

There are many health and healing properties to Ozonated water, it heals wounds, skin abrasions and rashes, please refer to the links below.

Oxygen is a natural healer. The high level of oxygen in the water heals cuts, skin rashes, eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis. (read more)

The skin and hair feel softer much softer after swimming and there is no need to wash bathers after swimming as there is no harsh chemicals, no smell or taste.

SwimFresh sanitised water will not deteriorate pool equipment like chlorine systems, and will therefor greatly prolong the life of all swimming pool equipment including cleaners and other associated equipment.

Ozonated water is extremely soft and moisturising, many customers have said the water feels like silk and swimwear last longer too.

SwimFresh natural swimming pools have sanitised water is safe to backwash onto lawns and gardens. Ozone water encourages healthy foliage and growth.

NSF’s Engineering Test Lab evaluated the effectiveness of the Ozone system to determine compliance with the NSF/ANSI Standard 50 Annex H. Standard 50 specifies “evaluation criteria for materials, components, products, equipment and systems for use at recreational water facilities” including spas or hot tubs and pools, both public and residential. The research was designed to test ozone effectiveness in killing Enterococcus faecium and Pseudomonas aeruginosa bacteria distributed in a tank of water (simulating a pool or spa).

By use of a standard venturi , the ozone was injected and repeated tests of the water were made after various lengths of exposure. The ozone was observed to produce a 6.6 to 6.7  log reduction (greater than 99.9999%) in these organisms within 6 minutes after startup, fully meeting the Standard 50 Annex H requirements.

The Toxicology Group, LLC, a Division of NSF International, tested the efficacy of Ozone for its ability to kill E. coli. The test, repeated 3 times, used measured doses of ozone dissolved in water that was infected with E. coli, controlling for water condition and time of exposure to ozone.

The result was that ozone reduced the number of E. coli organisms by 99.999% in both deionized and hard water within 30 seconds of exposure. This test meets the AOAC Official Method 960.09 (the AOAC, known variously as the Association of Official Analytical Chemists or the Association of Analytical Communities, is a 125-year-old organization that establishes uniform chemical analysis methods that are used as standards internationally).

Copper-Silver Ionization is the most effective method of controlling Legionella Bacteria & other waterborne pathogens, including Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Stenotrophomonas maltophilia, Acinetobacter baumannii, & mycobacterial species in hospital and swimming pool water systems.
This fact has been validated by numerous independent field evaluations worldwide.

Many swimming pools worldwide use Copper-Silver Ionization as their residual sanitising unit.
Many hospitals that were using hyperchlorination for Legionella Bacteria & other waterborne pathogens have converted to Copper-Silver Ionization because of failure to control Legionella & the disadvantages of the increased maintenance costs associated with chlorine induced corrosion and deterioration of pool plant and equipment.

Copper-Silver Ionization provides positive advantages in its consistent effectiveness, ease of installation & maintenance. Ionization also sustains prolonged effectiveness, which provides an added margin of safety.

Higher water temperatures do not reduce the biocidal activity of Copper-Silver Ionization, unlike chlorine & chlorine dioxide which is affected by heat.

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has set a maximum level for drinking water of 1.3 mg/L for copper & 0.1 mg/L for silver.

Copper ion concentrations of just 0.2 – 0.4 mg/L and silver ion concentrations of just 0.02 – 0.04 mg/L have proven to be effective to control Legionella Bacteria & other waterborne pathogens, including Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Stenotrophomonas maltophilia, Acinetobacter baumannii, & mycobacterial species.
