UV Filtration for Hot Tubs; A Safer Way for Your Family to Soak December 15/2018
Where there was darkness (and algae gunk) there is now only light! A UV light that is. UV Spa disinfection is the best, most modern way to clean your hot tub or spa. It’s simple, effective and safe. This non-chemical approach is being embraced by anyone who wants a healthier, more natural way to sanitize their water. An approach that has been used to decontaminate drinking water is now being applied to our swimming water!
Reduce the Chemicals in Your Hot Tub
According to the experts at Spectra Light Ultraviolet, “[The] UV system emits a high intensity germicidal light ray that alters or disrupts the DNA or RNA of targeted organisms such as algae, bacteria and protozoa. The concentrated electromagnetic energy also destroys organic matter found in hot tubs and spas, eliminating the formation of dangerous chlorine by-products. The by-products have been linked to asthma, allergies and even cancer.”
Approved by Experts Across the Board UV Works
Even the United States Environmental Protection Agency is on board. “UV has been found to be an effective disinfectant…simplicity of installation and ease of operation and maintenance, and low-cost relative to chemical disinfection make UV a useful technology.”
Did You Know Salt Systems Work By Producing Chlorine?
Chlorine and salt systems have long been the only option for cleaning your spa or hot tub. However, both of these options can be harsh on the skin and irritating to eyes or asthma. The entire point of a hot tub or spa is to help relax you. It can be hard to relax when your skin is itching from excessive chlorine.
The UV system is safe and undetectable. There are no residual effects for you, plant life, animals or the environment. The water is simply cleaned and feels completely natural. In addition to no skin irritation, the UV system also helps you avoid having to transport and store potentially hazardous chemicals.
The UV disinfection system is the way of the future! Contact us today to find out how you can bring your hot tub or spa or even swimming pool experience into the modern day.
