We do not claim that our Ozone system is a stand alone oxidation/sanitation system, it simply reduces the amount of Chlorine needed to maintain a safe sanitary residual in the pool as well as reducing or eliminating the bulk of "specialty" chemicals. There is no Ozone system in North America that can be used as a stand alone system in a residential application due to safety regulations. To effectively have a stand alone Ozone system you would need to run the pump 24/7 as there is no residual with Ozone, and that will still only take care of the oxidation workload, not the sanitation. Ozone, in a residential application cannot be relied on for sanitation due to the off-gassing of such high concentrations of Ozone gas required. We do not and have never claimed our systems to act as a sanitizer, they are simply there to act as the primary oxidizer, allowing the chlorine to do what it is supposed to do, sanitize. Telling somebody that they don't "need" Ozone on their pool is like saying that you don't "need" air conditioning in your car, but it is a nice option to have.JasonLion said:Ignoring the fact that I don't think you should have an ozone system at all, . . .
