Clearwater-Commercial FAQ

How difficult is it to install the system?

A licensed pool company or plumbing/electrical company is required for the installation on commercial pools.  Clearwater Enviro Technologies can also send a certified factory engineer to assist on the installation such as on large commercial pools or waterparks.

How do I know the system is working?

The ionization systems include a test kit to read the proper ion levels in the pool.  The ozone systems do not have a way of testing output in the pool, but you can visually inspect the ozone effect through a viewing window in the Venturi, which is included with the system.  Another way of knowing the system is working is the amazing clarity of the water!

Are copper and silver ions safe?

The amount of copper allowed in drinking water in the USA is about 7-8 times more than what our system produces.  Our metabolism actually requires copper in our daily diet. Silver has been used by dentists for fillings and has been commonplace in tableware, water purification filters and in coins for thousands of years.

Is the ozone safe?

Yes. Any ozone produced by our system does all of the disinfection action in the Venturi – located at the pool equipment.  By the time the water gets back to the pool water, it has totally dissipated.

Will I ever have to use chlorine again?

With our system in commercial pools, you can cut back use up to 75%.  Chlorine is still needed to oxidize body oils, suntan oil and other matter.

What is the electrical consumption?

The electrical consumption depends on the model number and your rate, but generally it will be under $10 a year.

Will I ever have to replace anything with the system?

Yes. The electrodes will need to be replaced in the ionization system once every year or two, depending on the length of pool season.  The ozone unit will need the hoses and check valves replaced yearly.  Both replacement are relatively inexpensive and only take a few minutes of time to replace.

How difficult is it to take care of pool with the system?

Learning the system is fairly easy.  The only thing different is maintaining the ion level in the pool with the test kit that is included.  Once the level is initially set, there is rarely any adjustments needed.  Everything else remains the same as far a pool water balancing goes – except you will be using less chlorine!

Will this system save me money?

Yes, it will save you thousands of dollars in chlorine use alone.*

*Actual savings depend on size of pool(s)
