    ozone purification

    My pool is just under 3 years old,was using biogaurd silk sticks,now for the last 12 months using nothing but bleach or other grocery store products.
    This year I wired in a timer so the pump runs 10am - 6pm
    During brushing the pool tonight I just realized my ozone purification system as doughboy calls it, was still running since its plugged in directly to outlet.
    I check my FC and ph daily-Was I upsold on this thing while being new?
    Never had algea but then never let the pool go a day without adjustment off adding chlorine or borax
    current test
    PH 7.4
    TA 110
    CYA 40
    FC 4.5

    our pool doesn't get used a lot, maybe once a week by a couple kids and daily by me, but just floating around like a leaf.
    Starting to think I was sold something that just runs 24/7 and buzzez, and if this thing does run all the time does it do any damage with no water flow when pump is off,just has a long hose from it connected to a ventury typ PVC threaded tube.Thanks

    Re: ozone purification

    as long as you keep your chlorine to the proper level, then you dont need the ozone. So, probably, yeah, you were upsold. Dont feel bad though, a LOT of people are suppled that and more, just becuase they dont know wny better.

    Your test numbers look great! Nice job on that.
