UV & Ozone Treatments Systems and Liquid Pool Covers

UV Treatment - A to Z Blogging Challenge
​Ultraviolet Light (UV) and Ozone systems provide a secondary treatment option for reducing chloramines in swimming pools and spas.

In the first, pool water is exposed to UV rays produced by a high output ultraviolet lamp. The UV exposure kills micro-organisms, bacteria, algae, and a myriad of other harmful organisms. 

Ozone generators are automated systems that inject ozone into the water during set filtration cycles.  Ozone removes chloramines and is known to kill bacteria, viruses, cysts, yeast, mildew and mold.

Both of these systems work by targeting organic matter that builds up and creates a less than ideal water environment. In both cases, Heatsavr is matter that will be targeted, but it's very nature helps protect it somewhat. 

Liquid pool covers are specifically engineered to only float at the very surface of your pool's water. That means that the majority of the product will be out of the main body of water, which is the primary focus of these sanitation systems. Some product will be broken down, but a daily application - which is our best recommendation - will replenish any material that is lost in the process. 

We have worked with pools using each of these systems and found that using our Automated Metering System to inject the liquid daily, rather than defaulting to a weekly dosage, is the most effective solution.

If you have any questions about your unique swimming pool and how Heatsavr can help reduce your energy consumption, water evaporation, or heat loss, please feel welcome to email [email protected] with all your inquiries.

I have many pool systems across the country which use Heatsavr and also have U/V on them. It works beautifully.

That's great to know Wes, thanks so much for sharing your experience! It's always so helpful to have feedback from professionals like yourself who actually do the installations and see the incredibly results on commercial facilities!
