Working backward: The effectiveness of any ozonation system is impacted by water chemistry, filtration and electrical wiring, so it’s crucial to address all these aspects of the system when diagnosing problems with an ozone-disinfected pool.

Under pressure: A lack of suction across the ozonator’s injector (also known as a venturi) can lead to insufficient availability of gas (air or pure oxygen, depending on the system) within the ozone generation chamber. Thus, checking the pressure differential with a pressure gauge or air flow meter is an important step in a diagnosis.

Checking valves: The system’s check valves may be prone to blockage or leaks, which can lead to more serious problems within the ozonator as a whole. Keeping these valves intact and clear is a critical aspect of ozonator maintenance.

Breaking down: Ozone is formed when oxygen molecules (O2) are split into individual atoms (O), which then recombine into molecules of ozone (O3).
