Ozone and its uses around the world

Since 1984 every Olympic pool including the main Olympic pool at Homebush Stadium in Sydney, NSW uses Ozone as their primary water sanitization method.


Because: the Ozone creates water that is extremely soft to swim in and is extremely beneficial for the skin and overall good health for the swimmer.

Ozone also kills bacteria, viruses and protozoa such as Giardia and Cryptosporidium (which are public pool parasites) which can cause severe gastrointestinal illness, chlorine alone does not effective kill these organisms, many public pools have been shut down for 3 to 4 months to treat these public pool parasites when using chlorine as it involves very high doses (up to 40ppm of chlorine). Ozone kills these common public pool parasites, Gardia and Cryptosporidium, instantly.

Also the Olympic swimmers benefit from Ozone in the pool as it removes Chloramines. Chloramines have been proven to cause respiratory issues along with a number of other health concerns.

The benchmark for drinking water and pool water quality worldwide is definitely Germany; Ozone systems are the sanitizer of choice in commercial and domestic pools and spas. (Chlorine-free Ozone pools have been in operation for over 50 years in Germany) Europeans are so accustomed to the soft feel of Ozone swimming pools, that a group of European swimmers at the Atlanta Olympics refused to enter a chlorine-only pool. The pool was subsequently switched to a combination of Ozone and low level chlorine treatment system.

Ozone has been proven to kill bacteria, algae, viruses & fungi 5000 times faster than chlorine; as it is a very powerful oxidizer and sanitizer, most public pools around America are now adding Ozone to the sanitation systems..

Other benefits of using Ozone include the prevention of airborne endotoxins, which occur in standard chlorine water treatment. Endotoxins can cause chronic coughing and wheezing among lifeguards called Hypersensitivity Pneumonitis (lifeguards’ cough).

In a combined Chlorine and Ozone pool, Ozone reduces or eliminates the caustic gases (Chloramines formed by chlorine), and also helps to reduce or eliminate maintenance problems such as rusting, deterioration of pool surfaces and pool equipment, fittings, fixtures that is caused generally by chlorine sanitation.

Ozone also kills moulds and mildews and eliminates spores, yeasts and fungus; it is pH neutral and adds no contaminants to water.

Due to the remarkable benefits of Ozone, Many resorts around the globe use Ozone i.e. the Atlantis Paradise islands Bahamas and Atlantis, the Palm resort Dubai, are using Ozone in their pools, spas and laundry facilities.

Ozone will revert to Oxygen once it has sanitised and oxidised particles, the only by product of ozone is oxygen which remains in the water. The SwimFresh pool system uses a synergy of ozone molecules and liquid oxygen that holds the Ozone in the water leaving a residual that can be measured.

Ozone helps in the flocculation of organic waste materials; the effectiveness of sand filters and other filtration systems is greatly enhanced. The result is crystal clear water a level of clarity never seen before.

Ozone directly decomposes organic waste by oxidation.

Any Ozone unused will revert to oxygen and remains dissolved in the water to the point of saturation. This makes the pool water clean, sparkling and contains many health benefits.

Ozone is generated on site and does not require storage or transportation.

Ozone has a great ability to reduce calcium carbonate scaling, removes existing scale and removes and prevents greasy sediments from forming on pool surfaces.

It is definitely, worldwide, the preferred choice for optimum sanitation and the healthy choice for fresh water swimming.
