How does Ozone work?
Ozone is up to 50 times more powerful at killing bacteria and viruses than traditional pool chemicals and up to 3000 times faster. Ozone is faster than chlorine at killing bacteria because chlorine needs to diffuse through the cell wall and disrupt the bacteria’s metabolism. Ozone, however ruptures the cell wall from the outside causing the cell’s contents to fall apart. This process is known as “cellular lyses”. This process takes place in about 2 seconds. With ozone, after the destruction of the cell all that is left are carbon dioxide, cell debris and water. Once this process is complete ozone reverts back to oxygen O2; which makes ClearO3 a very eco-friendly product. This additional oxygen in the water makes it smell good and gives it a sparkle. There are no toxic or hazardous by-product.
