Ozone is an allotropic form of oxygen; each molecule contains three atoms of oxygen instead of the usual two. Ozone is a powerful disinfectant and has been used commercially for the treatment of potable water since 1904. It is produced on site in the same way that ozone is formed naturally, by the discharge of electricity during a thunderstorm. A high voltage is passed across a gas stream containing oxygen. This method of ozone generation is called corona discharge. The energy of the high voltage splits an oxygen molecule (02) into two oxygen atoms (0) - which recombine with ordinary molecules of oxygen (02) to form ozone (03).

Ozone is a very effective alternative to chlorine and other chemicals as a disinfection agent in swimming pools. Ozone can safely prevent the formation of chlorine byproducts, such as chloramines and trihalomethanes which are potentially carcinogenic.
