Efficient and low maintenance, UV-C treatment is a growing trend in hot tubs, and for good reason! Ultraviolet light has proven to be a highly successful method of disinfecting water for over 60 years, and is also used in water treatment plants, aquariums, hospitals and pharmaceutical manufacturing.
The UltraRay UV-C purifier sanitizes spa water by permanently damaging the DNA of bacteria and other microbes that may be present, so they can’t reproduce. The UV unit is so effective in destroying bacteria that it cuts down on hot tub chemical usage by up to 50%, in addition to reducing the odors and irritation from chlorine by-products.
UV-C purifying systems work differently from ozonators, a common water treatment option on new spas. While ozone gas can be an effective treatment in spas, ozonators decrease in effectiveness over time and can damage gaskets, seals, and spa covers in high doses.
With The UltraRay UV-C Spa Purification System, all of the damage to microbes happens within the purification chamber, and no chemicals or gasses are emitted in the process, leaving cleaner, clearer hot tub water without harsh side effects. The only maintenance required is an annual UV-C bulb change, taking only a few minutes and screw driver.
The All-New Belize UltraRay spa series now features this innovative UV-C technology with ozone in the UltraRay Complete unit. This system is standard on each UltraRay spa model and can be upgraded on the Belize Classic spa series.
