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:
Organic contaminants maintain their shape with a cell wall.
O3 molecules make contact with the cell wall and create a hole in the wall
The cell wall is broken down quickly by O3 molecules.
The cell loses its shape as O3 continues to create holes in the cell wall.
In a few seconds, the cell cannot maintain its shape and the cell dies.
