One essential element of hot tubs is the water sanitation system that works to treat all the water in your hot tub. The sanitation system prevents the build-up of harmful bacteria and keeps your spa environment safe for use.
One of the latest methods being employed for spa sanitation is the use of ultraviolet light. How UV spa sanitation works and the benefits that accompany this option will be discussed below.
How Does it Work?
UV spa sanitation utilizes ultraviolet light to remove microorganisms, eradicate toxic by-products and lower your need for chemical usage. This is accomplished by focusing high-intensity UV-C germicidal light rays on water passing over it. The germicidal light is installed in your hot tubs piping, in a sterilization chamber. This chamber prevents UV rays from entering the hot tub and causing you any bodily harm.
What are the Benefits?
Harnessing ultraviolet light to disinfect spa water is also a very environmentally-friendly option as there are no adverse side-effects to animals, aquatic life, plants life or the environment. The UV light disrupts the DNA or RNA of organisms such as algae, bacteria and protozoa, which prevents them from reproducing.
Organic matter is also a very environmentally-friendly option as there are no adverse side-effects on the environment such as animals, aquatic life or plant life. This UV light disrupts the DNA or RNA of organisms such as algae, bacteria and protozoa, which prevents them from reproducing. Organic matter is also effectively destroyed by the highly-concentrated electromagnetic energy, which helps avert the development of chlorine by-products in the water. These chloramines have been linked to asthma, allergies and even cancer.
In Summation, UV spa disinfection helps eliminate harmful microorganisms, lower chemical usage and eliminate toxic by-products. At Canadian Home Leisure, we sell hot tubs that utilize this technology to provide you with a healthy environment for a soak.
