A: You still have to add chlorine some to the water to sanitize the water. To rely wholy upon the other systems is not wise. Another Answer The UltraPure Ozone Generator is not a stand alone system. You will still require a 0.5 to 1ppm Chlorine or Bromine residual. The UltraPure Ozone Generator will handle the bulk of the oxidation work (60-80%) that the Chlorine would normally be required to handle, leaving the Chlorine available to handle the sanitation, not oxidation.
