As summer approaches, you may have noticed it’s getting more challenging to purchase chlorine for your pool. Not only are we experiencing a chlorine shortage, but we’re also seeing an unprecedented rise in the price of chlorine. In order to help offset some of the challenges pool owners are facing, the pool care experts at Pettis Pools are excited to offer Oxygen Pools, an oxygen-based water treatment system designed to keep your pool water clean and clear at an affordable price. 

How Oxygen Pools Works

Oxygen Pools is a three-step program that consists of ozone, a peroxide residual, and shock treatment. This chlorine-free alternative is easy to use and doesn’t require a conversion process before you make the change from chlorine to Oxygen Pools. It’s simple to use, allowing you to be swimming in your pool while reaping the benefits in no time. So how does it work? 

Step 1: Ozone. The Dynamic Oxygen Generator automatically oxidizes contaminants in the water stream and creates dissolved oxygen in the water.

Step 2: Peroxide Residual. The Pure Purox provides a safe level of hydrogen peroxide to your pool water. Since hydrogen peroxide is produced by the human body as the first line of defense against pathogens, it’s not a foreign substance to your body, unlike chlorine. 

Step 3: Blended Shock Treatment. Finally, the EPA registered Formula “O” is added to simplify your water treatment plan and avoid the use of multiple different chemicals. Formula “O” contains four different additives, including an activated oxygen power, a natural algaecide and a food-grade clarifier. 

Why Choose Oxygen Pools Over Chlorine?

Also, because Oxygen Pools uses multiple layers of oxidation in the water to stay consistently clean and clear, you’ll find that your pool rarely needs a resolution if you have a sudden water quality issue. The continuous, automatic oxidation in an Oxygen Pool mitigates these problems and helps save the expense of chlorine trying to fix those urgent problems.
