Crystal clear spa water. Natural source salt blends. Effortless water care.
The Onzen™ Salt Water System is Arctic Spas proprietary salt water system that produces sanitizer from naturally sourced Dead Sea salts through electrolysis.
Salt-water sanitizer generation has several advantages over traditional sanitizer methods. Firstly, sanitizer is created, rather than added to the system and so there is very little on-going cost related to this system.
The sanitizer that is created is of a pure form and therefore is quite free of residual, resulting in much longer water lifespan before maintenance or changing is needed. The resulting spa water is much more gentle to skin and eyes, and has a similar salinity to a human tear.
Onzen has many unique features that have overcome previous challenges tied to salt water systems for spas. The first is that Onzen has a user-replaceable electrode cartridge. Electrolysis is a sacrificial process by definition – the electrodes will eventually deteriorate and require replacement.
The replacement of the Onzen titanium electrode cartridge is a simple and inexpensive maintenance item that does not require the hot tub to be drained. The second key feature of Onzen is the ability to control the system either from the topside control, or via the Arctic Spas Smart Phone App. This user adjustment can be used to match the sanitizer output of the Onzen system to the current, or anticipated bather load.
The use of the Onzen Salt Water system can significantly reduce the effort and cost required to maintain clear and safe spa water, but we do suggest adding the Peak I or II ozone systems as well to maximize the benefit of the Onzen Salt Water system.
