A salt system for up to 25000 gallons of water is about $15-$1700.00.Ozone you can put in for Ozone & venturi system around $6-700.00. Salt is a stand alone sanitizing system and ozone must be used with a sanitizing system.

AnswerAn ozone system consists of two basic components that ensure optimum performance at the lowest operating cost: 1. The ozone generation system2. The ozone management systemThe ozone generation system creates ozone gas from on-board oxygen concentrators. The ozone management system efficiently dissolves the gas into the water while ensuring that no undissolved ozone is available to off-gas in the pool equipment room or at the pool water surface. Ozone dose is automatically controlled with an oxidation reduction potential (ORP) controller/monitor maintaining proper ozone levels in the water.Together, the ozone generator and ozone management system operate in unison and are easily installed to an existing public pool as a side-stream to the pool's main filtration system. The ozone is introduced after the filtration (and heater), and before the chlorine feeder. The side-stream flow is normally 15 to 25 percent of the main flow, depending on the size and type of pool. The output of ozone is increased as the water quantity, water temperature or organic loading increases.Ozone is a safe and efficacious antimicrobial oxidizer. In public recreational water, ozone is used in conjunction with chlorine to enhance pool water clarity and quality and swimmer protection with ozone's potent and rapid oxidation of organic and inorganic compounds.Ozone is cost-effective, uses little energy, is safe for pool patrons, and helps to protect the HVAC system from structural degradation.Source: DEL Ozone Aquatics www.DELOzoneAquatics.com

Usually only cost. Equipment to make and apply ozone to match a target dose has a payback of 3 - 10 years, and doubling the ozone makes the payback centuries.Ozone does not affect hardness, will not reduce BOD (only COD), and does not provide a long-term kill necessary for, say, a water distribution system. Ozone works well as *one* of the tools of water treatment, not the only tool.

Sanitation is a hygienic way of promoting health by keeping humans away from hazards brought by wastes. A sanitation barrier, on the other hand, poses a hindrance to provide sanitation to those who need them. One example of this is high cost of sanitation.

It is common to hear confusion about the difference between ozone and UV systems. They are, in fact, completely different technologies but confusion may come from UV-generated ozone that was used in residential pools and spas before breakthrough compact CD ozone generators came on the scene in the late 1990s. Today, UV generated ozone is never used in commercial pool settings because the systems cannot make enough ozone to benefit the pool water. CD generated ozone, on the other hand, is extremely safe and effective for pool water sanitation.Both Ozone and UV provide effective reduction of Cryptosporidium (Crypto), however, there are clear differences in other areas of concern for commercial aquatics designers and operators. The advantage, in these cases, goes to Ozone over UV.Ozone is a powerful oxidizer.Ozone gas dissolves in water to kill microorganisms, destroy organics that create chloramines, and breaks down existing chloramines by oxidation. Meanwhile, UV light inactivates microorganisms and breaks down chloramines with light energy, but this is only possible while the water is in the UV chamber, and as long as the water has no turbidity. Once the flow leaves the chamber no further process occurs. UV provides no oxidation except as trace amounts as a result of the formation of a limited number of hydroxyl free radicals. Ozone and UV are comparable in cost.Ozone and UV technologies are comparably priced. Operational costs of each system vary with the local price of electricity. However, the minimal maintenance and reduced chemical requirements of an ozone system create significant benefits. Meanwhile, UV lamps must be replaced every 3 to 12 months and must be figured into the maintenance costs for these systems. Source: Del Ozone Aquatics www.delozoneaquatics.com

As sanitation technology can be as simple as a hole in the ground or as complicated as to do everything for a city of millions of people the simple question - complex answer

a straight Chlorine pool is easy and does not cost much to start with. Salt (Sodium chloride) water pools are also chlorine pools but they use the salt in the pool to make chlorine using an electrode designed to do that job. however the water can not be reused when back washing the filtration system. Salt (Magnesium chloride and potassium chloride) work like a normal salt pool only the salt is not harmful and can be beneficial to swimmers as well as the back wash being good for plants in the yard so no water need go to waste. Ozone requires special equipment but is reputed to be a very good sanitation method without the irritating effects of chlorine.

It depends on the water source, and the contaminants in it. Spring water or RO water is dropped into bottles with 0.2 to 0.4 ppm of ozone. This just keeps the contents "sterile" until the bottle is capped, and the ozone decays back to oxygen. One community in California gets their drinking water from an underground well located in a buried ancient redwood forest... and ozone cannot treat it economically. The low tens of ppm of ozone were applied, and eventually so much oxygen ended up in the water, the carbon filters would get bound up with all the gas. To say nothing about corrosion in the distribution system from high dissolved oxygen. Ozone doses of 1 - 3 ppm are ideal (cost and payback), and other treatment methods need to be applied either before or after ozonation (adding ozone to water), to allow this much / little ozone in most surface water sources. Underground sources commonly only require filtration and/or ion exchange. Ozone is not usually required unless the ions are not fully oxidized, which is why they are found dissolved in water. Examples are iron, arsenic, and manganese. Manganese is a tricky one. Within increasing oxidation it goes from soluble (bad), to insoluble (good, can be adsorbed to something), to soluble again (bad). So ozone doses here have to be carefully applied.

When purchased online, the price of an ozone generator ranges between about $25 to about $1000. The price depends on what type of ozone generator you are looking for.

Water cost to little for hydraulic system thus to make money we use light oils plus the vicosity of the water is TOO LIGHT

With installation expect to pay at least $500 for a water softener system. If you have a larger home or facility the cost will go up. Some systems sell for over $2,500 (not including installation).

Ozone for pool sanitization is most cost effective (including consumption of electrical power, some of which is still fossil fuel derived) when it is used to "reactivate" the actual sanitizer in the pool. Ozone will reactivate bromine compounds to hypobromous acid, and bromine has a lower vapor pressure than chlorine, so you can use less bromine if you add ozone, than you would ever be able to get away with for chlorine (because ozone and chlorine are not synergistic in the same way... or at all). This means less hardness change due to chemical additions... more chemical savings. There are pools that use ozone for the primary (pre-filter) and secondary (in the pool itself) sterilant. They are made from special materials (especially the pumping / filtration), take special pool coatings (regular paints fail quickly), and take a much more expensive ozone generator (both to buy and operate). Most eco-friendly of all, is not to have a private pool, but to use a community pool instead. It is safer than most public bodies of water... if the pool is well maintained.

Yes and No. Ozone will kill bacteria and all pathogens on the meat if used correctly. Therefore ozone is a great anti-microbial agent. Important to remember: anti-microbial = reducing bacteria Sanitize = 3 log (or more) reduction in bacteria Sterilize = removal of all bacteria and life While ozone could potentially sterilze, it would be cost prohibitive to do so. The level of ozone in water, or air + contact time would be so high that no food plat would implement ozone for this use.

Water softeners vary, it depends on what water system you have as well as where you purchase from. They generally range in prices. It is worth it to comparison shop.

Chlorine will always be used for secondary sterilization in drinking water, so further discussion will be based on general oxidzer needs. Chlorine requires very inexpensive equipment to dispense. Chlorine is very dangerous to handle, but these dangers are well understood and capable of being mitigated by trained personnel. Chlorine is more expensive in the long run (> 5years usually, depending on oxidizer needs and power costs). Chlorine should not be used in any application that will be offgassing routinely (see ozone depletion, and simply wasting applied dollars) Ozone is very capital intensive to set up. Ozone is also dangerous to handle, but if you turn off the power, ozone is quickly gone back to oxygen. Ozone is less expensive in the long run. Some of the savings comes from the fact that ozone does what it does faster, and requires less C*T (concentration times time) to complete a given reaction. Control systems costs for either system will roughly equivalent.

We have paid some of the cost, we have banned the Man-made products that we knew were destroying ozone. Now we have to stop flying aircraft at high altitudes, except for rare research runs. The ozone layer will fix itself, if we'll stop adding stuff to the air that ends up up there.

because it will cost money to hold it and then it will damage the ozone layer

That will depend dramatically on what the water is contaminated with and if the contamination was also in the sediments and/or the groundwater system of the lake.

With out knowing the square footage or seeing any plans you can figure around $2.00 to $4.00 a square foot. Geographical area could play in to this also. In remote areas, without a reliable water supply, the cost of the necessary water storage and pumps may be the bulk of the system cost.

There are two types of hot water recirculator systems to choose from. CLOSED-LOOP system has a dedicated hot water piping that runs throughout a home beginning and ending at the water heater. This system is primarily installed during a new build. PROS: Provides the hottest hot water, causes no loss of cold water comfort CONS: Has the highest initial cost of install, cost the most to insulate, uses the most energy to operate. OPEN-LOOP hot water recirculation system shares the homes existing cold water line to return cooled down water in the hot water line and back to the water heater. This system is installed after a home is already built. There are two sub-types of these systems. PUMP INSTALLED AT WATER HEATER (passive bypass control) PUMP INSTALLED UNDER DISTANT SINK (positive bypass control) PASSIVE FLOW CONTROL system. is his is the easiest and most affordable system to install. Efficiency greatly affects comfort with this type of system. Be sure to do research before deciding which system is riht for you. Making a wrong decision here can cause frustration and cost you in high energy bills. So you must first decide what type of hot water circulation system you want.
