Should You Install an Ozonator to Your New Whirlpool Bath?
When buying a new whirlpool bath, there are plenty of things to consider – from design to practicality, and everything in between. One thing that could potentially slip your mind is the need for ongoing maintenance to keep your new whirlpool bath in ship-shape for years to come. While there are many ways to clean a whirlpool bath yourself, there’s also one other option available before your tub even arrives at your door: installing an ozonator. Let’s find out more.
What is an ozonator?
Let’s start at the beginning. Ozone is a gas which exists naturally in the earth’s atmosphere – you’ve probably heard of the ozone layer – but it can also be created artificially. Put as simply as possible, while the oxygen you breathe in the air contains two molecules (hence the name O2), ozone is actually made up of three molecules (O3). The light from the sun splits oxygen molecules in the atmosphere, which then reform into triple-molecule structures and form part of the ozone layer. This process can be replicated with UV light, and that's exactly what an ozonator does to the water in your bath – bringing with it many benefits.

The benefits of an ozonator in a whirlpool bath
So, what exactly does an ozonator do once it’s installed in your whirlpool bath? Well, its primary function is to sanitize the water in your tub in an all-natural way without the need for potentially harmful chemicals. The ozonator essentially purifies the water before it even begins to fill the tub, with the ozone itself serving to eliminate viruses, bacteria, and other waterborne nasties that may be lurking. In addition, once permeated through the bathwater, ozone also breaks down the oils in the water which lead to the unsightly ‘ring’ that can sometimes form around the inner bathtub edges. On top of all of this, due to the natural process used by the ozonator, there’ll be no residue of any kind – it’s all totally seamless.
How are ozonators installed?
While an ozonator is incredibly useful in prolonging the life of your whirlpool bath and preventing the use of harsh chemicals, it’s important to note that it can only be installed prior to fitting into your bathroom. The reason for this is that ozonators are actually strategically placed within the pipework of the whirlpool bath, making it difficult if not impossible to carry out retroactively. With that in mind, we’d strongly recommend that you learn more about whirlpool bath ozonators and decide if it’s right for you before making that final purchasing decision. And for a whirlpool bath that truly stands the test of time, it’s a very smart decision indeed.
