Its been a long time.
I was curious to test for myself if ozone will destroy chlorine or chloramines.
Now that the TP-100 test kit have arrived, I am learning how to use it.
I just got a Prozone PZ2-4V which is a 2 gram per hour model. I already installed it on my pool plumbing, the one with Hayward 2Hp pump.
So when the test kit arrived, I am dying to test both the TF-100 and the ozone system.
Anyhow, I happened to be able to borrow my friend's ozone system and it is the same 2gram/hour output as mine and comes with air compressor, because his pump room is like 6 feet under his pool.
I use approx 25 gallon ( 95 liters ) Rubbermaid cooler box as water container.
Thanks to the TP-100, I can now finally detect combined chlorine level. I suspect its not normal as I am getting a mild smell of "chlorine" from the water, even though Total Chorine was way above 3PPM ( that's all my simple Pentair test kit can do ).
Water is very clear.
I am in the process of shocking the pool when the test kit arrived and what a blessing.
So I rigged the borrowed ozone
Anyhow these are the numbers :
9 Aug 2008
Water about 25 gallons or 95 liters
FC = 5.5 CC= 1
I run the ozone system and since I do not use the supplied venturi injector and I don't want to use my 1.5HP Pentair pump on trolley on such a small water container, I decided the ozone system with compressor can inject ozone if I can make small enough bubbles. So I went to the aquarium shop and got 2 of sand stone aerator block and a wooden aerator block. I did not know they have a wood one ...which in fact produces very fine bubbles.[attachment=2:1x31n4rc]Ozone generator and compressor.jpg[/attachment:1x31n4rc]
