What is shotcrete or gunite?
And Shotcrete also known as Wet-Mix Shotcrete has all the same ingredients as the dry-mix gunite process, except they are mixed together before being pumped into a delivery hose. Compressed air is then added at the nozzle to increase the material velocity.
Are ozone sanitation systems effective?
Ozone has been used for municipal water treatment since the early 1900’s and began to see use in commercial and residential swimming pools shortly thereafter. Ozone is common in European swimming pools, but is less so in the United States where chlorination is the most common sanitation standard. Ozone is effective in treating pool water because it is an extremely strong oxidizer (much stronger and faster-acting than chlorine) and because it contributes oxygen to the water as its by-product. Ozone is also pH neutral, therefore, balancing of swimming pool water is easier compared to a chlorine pool, resulting in less chemical adjustments. Ozone is the strongest oxidizer that is safe to both handle and use. Ozone is the one most effective oxidizer and disinfectant commercially available that can be safely used in water and air treatment. It has been approved by the FDA, USDA, and the EPA as an antimicrobial disinfectant. Ozone requires only cold water, eliminates the need for chemicals, and is created on-site, on-demand.
Ozone is a smarter alternative to salt, chlorine, and other chemicals and can oxidize and reduce microorganisms such as bacteria, fungus, and viruses in water 3,200 times faster than chlorine.
