We just recently bought a 440 gallon Divine hot tub with a 24 hour circulation pump and Del Ozonator. I really like the simplicity of chlorine and good experience with my pool swg so I decided to purchase a ControlOMatic ChlorMaker DO. I have recently learned how ozonators will oxidize the chlorine along with everything else, I just haven't been able to find the rate at which it will oxidize the chlorine. As far as bather load we will prob use it at least every night or every other night (1-3 bathers).
I have also read that the ozone can break down a spa cover and pillows faster, is this true? How much faster? Is this reason enough to unplug the ozonator?
