How Does Ozone Oxidize Contaminants In Water?

An Oxygen Pool automatically infuses ozone (O3 oxygen) into the water as it circulates to quickly oxidize contaminants.   Oxygen is the original oxidizer…..we simply oxidize differently, by using different forms of oxygen, which is non toxic to humans in water and to the environment. Here’s how it works:

pool water contaminate

Organic contaminants maintain their shape with a cell wall.

oxygen pools oxidation of contaminate stage 1

O3 molecules make contact with the cell wall and create a hole in the wall

oxygen pools oxidation of contaminate stage 2

The cell wall is broken down quickly by O3 molecules.

oxygen pools oxidation of contaminate stage 3

The cell loses its shape as O3 continues to create holes in the cell wall.

oxygen pools oxidation of cell stage 4

In a few seconds, the cell cannot maintain its shape and the cell dies.
