The Prozone Ozone Units have been available in the UK for many years. The Ozone is created using Ultra Violet Light. The Ozone gas is burnt off in a fraction of a second. The main benefits of using a Prozone Ozonator with your swimming pool are listed below:
Please Note : For illustration purposes the image shown is the Prozone Ozonator - Venturi.
Using an Ozonator system makes sense for lot UK pool owners. They are very simple to install – especially to retro fit to an existing plant room (read instructions in the resources tab). They will allow you to use 80% less chlorine in your pool. You will still need to keep a small background level of chlorine. Like the UV systems the lamp cartridge will need changing after a certain amount of time. The life expectancy of the Phillips Lamp supplied with the UV systems is 9000 hrs. The UV lamps effectiveness will decrease over time. 9000 hours is the approximate life cycle. Spare lamp cartridges can be purchased from this store. p>
The Swimming Pool Ozone Units work slightly different to the UV systems. The Ozone is injected into the swimming pool pipe. Disinfection happens within the actual water as oppose to exposure to light. The two best ways of injecting the ozone are via Venturi or by means of a compressor. Obviously the venturi method is much cheaper . Just basic injectors, pipe and non return valves are required. However under certain circumstances a compressor method of delivery is the only option. One such circumstance would be if your plant room is below the waterline. If you are unsure please call one of our friendly technical staff.
In both circumstances above air will enter the swimming pool system. This will cause a few bubbles to be injected to the pool via the inlets. This is air perfectly harmless. Some customers do not like the idea of bubble in their swimming pool – on indoor pools it may cause noise believe it or not. The only way to remove the air is to install a degasser. This will purge the air before it enters the swimming pool. Again ask for details if you are unsure.

Various size Prozone Ozonator Systems are available – the smallest suitable for a pool or spa 625 gallons (ZZPZ1) .The largest system will treat a pool 380m3 (PZ2-4V).
Ozone Generation Theory :
All ozone is produced directly or indirectly by oxygen gas
(O2) being energised to split and reform into Ozone (O3).
This is accomplished by applying an alternating voltage
across a gas. The higher the frequency the higher the
energy in the gas and the lower the voltage required to
energise the system. In the case of VUV ozone producing
amps, the energy of the alternative current is applied to a
tube of quartz containing mercury gas which then excites
the oxygen outside the quartz tube to form ozone.
Prozone ozone generation systems must be used
in conjunction with either chlorine or bromine. Ozone
oxidises combined the chlorine and bromine freeing it to be
continuously re-used. This reduces chemical consumption
and eliminates eye and skin irritation.
Venturi Systems for Residential Pools :
The PZ7 Series generator features a unique patented bypass venture configuration for quick installtion. This allows maximum ozone/water mixing to purify the water before it reaches the swimming pool.
Venturi Injector Bypass Theory:
A bypass contactor system gets its water directly after the circulation pump where pressure is high and returns the water to the last low pressure point returning top the pool. This pressure drop drives the venture. It draws air/ozone from the ozonator amd mixes it with water before returning to the pool. Additional tube is supplied to ensure all ozone is absorbed before the water is returned.
