The leaves are changing. The temperatures are dropping. Football is on TV, and the unmistakable scent of pumpkin spice is wafting through the air. There’s no doubt about it — fall is here. And while there’s a lot to love about the transitional time between summer vacation and the busy holiday season, for some hot tub owners, fall means one thing: Winterizing.
Whether you prefer an early-morning spa session to mentally prepare for a busy day, or a late-night soak in the warm, soothing waters to help you sleep better, there's one thing we can all agree on: No matter what time you prefer to step into your hot tub, the water needs to be clean to truly enjoy the experience.
Ozone is created when oxygen molecules (1) are split by a high-energy electrical discharge (2) resulting in two individual oxygen atoms (3). Those individual oxygen atoms unite with remaining oxygen molecules to produce a three-atom molecule of ozone gas (4). The weak bond holding ozone’s third oxygen atom causes the molecule to be extremely unstable and thus, a very effective oxidizer.
