As some of you know I have been considering either an ozonator or a UV system for supplemental oxidation for my indoor pool. Well as chance had it I ran across an older Ultra-Pure Ozonator (new in box) off ebay last night for a very cheap price, so I bid on it and won, it is rated for 50,000 gallon pool size, and assuming it has equal output to their current 50,000 gallon model it should output about .44 grams of ozone per hour. Now I am looking for some thoughts on installation, etc. It seems Ultra-Pure is of the position that the best way to install is by plumbing into the inlet side pool pump, probably through a drain plug replacement on the pool pump. Any thoughts, or warnings on this approach? Also I am currently running my pump 24/7 (I need to replace the dead timer, but am waiting for cooler weather), should I wire the ozonator into the same timer as the pump when I replace it (both are 240V), if so should I wire in a cut off switch/timer for the ozonator downstream from the pump timer to only run it at selective times? Any other thoughts, warnings, etc. Note I have a fairly long return plumbing path, about 30 feet to the closest return from the filter.
p.s. I plan to add in an adjustable flow meter like their current product includes so I can easily tune the output flow.
