PLEASE READ ALL THE INFORMATION BEFORE PERFORMING THE TEST.
The purpose of this kit is to detect if there is Ozone present
in the output stream from the Ozone Generator (Ozonator) to your Spa. The extent
to which the blue indicator material in the glass tube ‘bleaches’ to white,
will give you a good indication if your unit is producing an effective level of
Ozone. This kit is intended as a qualitative guideline for the presence of Ozone
and does not quantify the amount of Ozone present. When Ozone, from the Ozonator
on your Spa, bleaches the blue indicator material to white, in 30 seconds or
less, the unit is making enough Ozone. If it does not, it is time to put in a
new Ozone generator.
A ‘bleached-out’ Ozone detection tube cannot be reused, while an unbleached one can be reused.
Included in the Kit are: A glass Ozone Detection Tube with blue indicator material; 5¾” of small (1/4” O.D.) clear plastic tubing; and, 5¾” of larger (1/4” I.D.) clear plastic tubing. Items Required are: A pair of pliers; and a knife or scissors.
Test Procedure – Three Easy Steps
- The Ozonator is working if the entire length of the indicator media is bleached from blue to white, in 30 seconds (see figure 6) – this indicates there is sufficient Ozone present to clean your Spa water. Repeat every 6 to 9 months.
- It is time to replace the Ozonator if the indicator media in the Ozone Detection Tube remains blue or is only partially bleached out to white – the Ozone output is not sufficient to clean your Spa water.
