Jacuzzi has developed a new water purification system called Clear Ray. Clear Ray uses the same UV-C technology that is already used in hospitals, municipal water plants and to bottle water. Now you can use that technology to keep your hot tub water clean and fresh.

UV-C light is a natural part of the spectrum of electromagnetic energy generated by the sun. What does that mean in non-scientific terms? No chemicals are used- it is a natural process, and it doesn’t produce any by-products in your water. The UV-C light works by attacking the DNA of bacteria and viruses, destroying their ability to reproduce. Clear Ray kills 99.9% of water borne bacteria and viruses in Jacuzzi hot tubs.

Another advantage to using Clear Ray’s natural process is you don’t get that weird chlorine smell to your water. Clear Ray does not create a smell, so you’ll be lounging around in clear, fresh water. Another great advantage is Clear Ray Jacuzzi water doesn’t damage vinyl and plastic covers like chlorine or ozone do. Covers for Jacuzzis that have the Clear Ray Water Purification System are going to stay good-as-new. (Assuming of course, you don’t do something else to damage them.) And because there aren’t any chemicals in the water, you won’t get the irritated skin or burning eyes sometimes associated with hot tubs.

Clear Ray cuts down significantly on the required maintenance and upkeep of your hot tub. The bulb on the purification system only has to be replaced once a year.  You do still have to pH balance and shock treat the water with Clear Ray though, so don’t forget that.

The new 2012 line of Jacuzzi hot tubs will all come standard with Clear Ray technology. If you’re interested in finding out more about this water purification system, call Ultra Modern Pool & Patio, where they stock these new Jacuzzis. Check them out on their website.
