If you own a whirlpool bath, you need a Prozone ozonator. Why? Read on…
Whirlpool Baths are inherently subject to some degree of biofouling within tub plumbing. Biofouling refers to the buildup on inert surfaces of microorganisms such as mold, yeast and bacterial biofilms. The combination of bather load, residual water in the plumbing and irregular use of the whirlpool system contribute to biofouling.
The normal bather is a primary source for bacteria that proliferate in whirlpool baths, contributing hundreds of thousands of bacterial cells. While a normal occurrence, this is part of bather loading. Bather load also consists of perspiration, body oil, dead skin cells, soap and shampoo. This additional bather load provides the nutrients necessary for the growth of bacteria. Municipal water can also be considered a source of some bacteria.
A number of unpleasant diseases can be contracted from biofouling including:
Ozone is a very effective sanitizer & oxidizer for whirlpool bath applications. Ozone sanitizes whirlpool plumbing by killing microorganisms such as bacteria on contact. Ozone oxidizes pollutants such as sweat & body oils that come from the bather. For almost 30 years, Prozone has been using ozone technology to make the water used for recreational purposes safe and clean. As the dangers of biofouling in whirlpool baths have evolved, so too has our technology. By combining sound science and ingenious engineering we have produced systems for sanitizing jetted tubs comprehensively. There is simply no other system with these capabilities.
The Prozone patented systems involve no maintenance on the consumer’s part. Regardless of how frequently the whirlpool system of the tub is used, it is being sanitized multiple times on a daily basis. The factors that contribute to biofouling are constantly being treated with a dose of ozone and advance oxidation processes. The end result is a jetted tub with sanitized water, sanitized lines, and an integrated sanitation system capable of preventing and destroying biofilms.
