Hot Tub Ozonator: How Does It Work?

Posted by marketing on Apr 30, 2015 1:27:01 PM

Ozonators  are used in hot tub water purification systems to help purify the water by breaking down unwanted organic material. An ozonator hot tub is considered to be the most efficient and cleanest purification method of free standing water. So what exactly is Ozone? Lets start with a breakdown of the steps involved in the ozone process.



Ozone (O3) is a triatomic molecule, that has three oxygen atoms instead of the regular two. It is sometimes referred to as energized oxygen, because it actually attacks surrounding atoms and molecules, by oxidizing them, breaking them down, and illimenating them from water. Ozone is much stronger than regular oxygen becuaase of this third atom. It is loosely connected to the molecule causing it to detach and re-attach to it’s surroundings.

The O3 molecule normally has a short lifespan, so when it’s created naturally, it doesn’t have dramatic affects on it’s surroundings. O3 created by hot tub ozonators are designed to be much more long lasting and are a very efficient way to purify hot tub water. Ozonators combine intense UV light with water to constantly gernerate O3 and break down unwated materials. 


What are the noticeable affects of an ozonator in a hot tub?

  • Eliminates foul odors in hot tub water
  • Breaks down unwanted material
  • Helps clean the inner workings of hot tubs
  • Cuts costs of expensive hot tub chemicals



It is important to consider installing an ozonator in your hot tub as it is a completely safe and natural way to purify your water, and it saves you money in the long run. If you are a hot tub owner, and you want to install an ozonator, it can be done, but it will cost you.

The best way to get an ozonator hot tub is to make sure your new spa has this feature already installed. Not all hot tub manufacturers include ozonators in their spas. Often times you have to ask, or pay extra.
