Ozone Benefits

The benefits of ozone are embedded into every one of the DEL Ozone Advanced Sanitation Solutions.
Benefits of Ozone
Ozone is Nature’s Most Powerful Disinfectant & Oxidizer
On a base average, ozone is 200 times stronger than chlorine and is effective in destroying organic contaminants, pathogens, and a variety of inorganic materials, such as suntan lotions, oils, and cosmetics. 

Ozone Destroys Resilient Microorganisms

Chlorine resistant microorganisms, such as Cryptosporidium parvum and Giardia, are instantly destroyed by ozone. Other bacteria and pathogens, such as E.coli, Salmonella, Listeria, and Pseudomonas, are also no match. Ozone destroys them all. 
Ozone is Safe and Does Not Cause Damage
For all of ozone's inherent power, it is perfectly safe and will not adversely affect people, pets, or equipment when properly installed. Ozone also does not irritate skin, hair, nails, or eyes, will not degrade swimwear, and will not damage any hardscapes, covers, fittings, or any other equipment within the water.
Ozone Saves Money
Ozone is the cost-effective sanitizer. It helps to reduce the need for repeated chemical purchase costs, dosing costs, water turn rates, and for storage and management. When used in pools, ozone will effectively reduce chemical needs by 60-90% depending on the application. DEL Ozone's ozone cells also have a long life expectancy (5+ years), which keeps maintenance costs very low.
Ozone is Highly Effective in Cold Water
Using cold water instead of hot saves energy and reduces the costs associated with heating water. When the need for hot water is too expensive or just not feasible, ozone sanitation provides a significant money-saving alternative.
Ozone is an EPA Approved Antimicrobial Disinfectant and Sanitizer
Ozone is one of only three groups of antimicrobial agents registered by the EPA for public health use (the other two being antibiotics and antiseptics).
The Model Aquatic Health Code (MAHC)
The MAHC provides water safety guidance to assist local and state authorities to help ensure water activities are safe for the public. States and localities can use the MAHC to create or update existing pool codes to reduce risk for outbreaks, drowning, and pool-chemical injuries. DEL Ozone continually reviews the MAHC, and meets or exceeds the standards set forth. 
Ozone Applications Comply with NSF/ANSI Standard 50, OSHA and UL Lab Standards
Ozone is recognized as safe and highly effective according to the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) and Underwriters Laboratories (UL).
Ozone & The FDA
Ozone has been qualified for use by the FDA. This applies to direct food applications as well as food processing surface disinfection.
Ozone is the Environmentally Preferred Sanitizer
Due to the high reduction in chemical needs (60-90%), ozone sanitation is a great choice for our environment. Also, ozone does not negatively impact our environment considering it is a natural occuring molecule of our planet. DEL Ozone ensures our units are energy efficient, we effectively reduce chemical consumption, and we do not create any harmful by-products.
