SPA & POOL UV-C (Ozone)

We offer the UV-C lamp (Ozone) as an accessory to the Clearwater Ionization System: this UV light oxidizes the residual organic substances of the pool water, in conjunction with the process of disinfection by copper/silver ionization.
With this combination, you will be able to enjoy a virtually “hands-free” pool, completely free of chemical products!

General Information about UV Light
(without Clearwater Ionization System)

Clean, clear and fresh swimming pool water with up to 80% less chlorine, the new Spa & Pool UV-C makes it possible. The Spa & Pool UV-C disinfects water safely and in an environmentally friendly manner. It keeps the formation of mould, bacteria and algae under control and protects the (swimming pool) water against pathogenic organisms.
You do not need to use as much chlorine and other chemicals to disinfect the water, to prevent chlorine smell, skin irritation and "red eyes". In comparison with other UV-C devices, the Spa & Pool UV-C has many unique features. Due to the length of the stainless steel housing, the water is exposed to a high dose of UV-C radiation for a particularly long period. The interior of the Spa & Pool UV-C is electrolytically polished so grime can barely adhere, keeping the reflection at its maximum and maintenance simple. The reflection also yields 35% more UV-C. The Philips UV-C lamp has a useful life of an incredible 9,000 hours.

The Spa & Pool UV-C is available from certified swimming pool installers and specialty shops.

With the Spa & Pool UV-C your water will be efficiently and safely disinfected, providing you with excellent water quality.
The choice is up to you!

Functioning of the Spa & Pool UV-C.

The Spa & Pool UV-C provides clean, fresh and clear water in an efficient and environmentally friendly manner. The water is fed through the UV-C unit by a pump. Here it is exposed to UV-C radiation at a wavelength of 253,7 nanometres, produced by a special lamp. This radiation neutralises bacteria, viruses and other primitive organisms and prevents them from reproducing. UV-C radiation damages the DNA of the cells and ensures that the genetic material can no longer be read. The cells in the water die off and can no longer divide.
