SpectraLight Ultraviolet UV Systems harness the power of ultraviolet light to lower chemical levels, eliminate chlorine by-products, and to make hot tubs safe, healthy, and easier to manage. We are finding out that less is more when it comes to hot tub chemicals.
Ten years ago, hot tubs and spas typically relied on bromine or chlorine for all of their sanitation. In addition, the pH, total alkalinity and calcium hardness must be monitored to help the chemicals do their work. Failure to maintain proper water chemistry may result in disease transmission.
In recent years, scientific studies have exposed the dangers of chemical disinfection. Using high quantities of chemicals in a pool or hot tub may result in a toxic soup of chemicals. Scientific studies have linked these disinfection by-products to asthma, allergies, and even cancer.
The installation of non-chemical sanitation systems is highly recommended. Ultraviolet disinfection uses a powerful light ray to eliminate all known pathogens. Commonly used in drinking water disinfection, UV eliminates algae, bacteria, viruses, cysts, chloramines and other disinfection by-products. Ultraviolet light lowers chemical levels, eliminates waterborne pathogens, and makes your hot tub or spa safe, healthy and easier to manage.
