    Ultrapure Ozone Generator

    My system is sucking in air at the flow meter. Is it worth the headache and money to replace this?

    I have a 18000 gal pool, echotech ez variable speed pump, jandy cl 460 cart filters.

    The general feeling here is that Ozone or UV systems are not needed for the vast majority of outdoor residential pools. Some people claim we are anti ozone and anti UV around here, that is not the truth as they have their place, namely in high volume pools, some therapy pools and hot tubs, and some indoor pools, basically situations where there is a high bather to volume of water ratio combined with lack of natural UV from sunlight and elevated water temperatures.

    I agree with Isaac-1 assessment.

    But here's a test you can do - shut the ozone system off or disconnect it and leave it that way for a few weeks. If there is no change to your normal chemical/pool maintenance (i.e., you can't tell the difference with it on or off), then you have your answer....

    Re: Ultrapure Ozone Generator

    Thanks everyone for the advice. I'm going to cap it off and disable it. It seems like everyone in AZ that has one, has also disabled or removed it.
