UV lamps emit safe, high intensity light which break apart DNA & RNA of microorganisms, harmful bacteria, viruses, cysts, and protozoa. This "inactivates" those contaminates to leave the water safe and sanitized. This high intensity light also destroys organic matter such as urine and sweat to eliminate the formation of chlorine by-products
Reduce Chemical Demand
By allowing UV-C lamps to destroy contaminates, more chlorine is free to keep the pool sanitized. This reduces the load on chlorination systems such as salt water and greatly reduces the amount of chemicals that need to be added to the water.
UV-C lamps are also "clean" technology. The only active disinfectants are rays of light, no gasses or oxidants are added to the water. Chlorine and other chemicals are great at keeping the pool water actively safe even when the pump is off. UV-C sanitizes contaminants, breaks down chloramines and develops more comfortable water. Working in conjunction with a residual sanitizer such as a salt system, UV-C creates a complete modern pool system.
Ozone Systems work by splitting molecular oxygen in the water into atomic oxygen (O1). These free oxygen molecules then bond to form ozone (O3). When Ozone contacts contaminants, the bond is broken and the free oxygen atom destroys the foreign bodies & contaminants. Ozone is a very powerful sanitizer and by working with a residual sanitizer ozone can create a safer, cleaner pool.
