DEL Ozone Upgrades Eclipse and Total Eclipse Ozone Generators. What changed? What stayed the same?

Posted by

In 2014 DEL Ozone made some significant changes to their pool ozone generators, the Eclipse and Total Eclipse.  Here we explain what changed and what stayed the same.

Eclipse Injector-Driven Pool Ozone Systems come in three sizes (small, medium and large based on gallons and run time).  

Here is what changed in the Eclipse Ozone Systems:

  1. Ozone Modules 5-1308-04 have been replaced with modern APG Ozone Modules (9-1056-01) which create more ozone, last longer, resist failure caused by water back-flow better, handle humidity better, are small and light-weight for less expensive shipping and environmental footprint
  2. Part Numbers.  What were EC-1, EC-2 and EC-4 are now EC-10, EC-20 and EC-40
  3. The Look.  New cabinet, new label, new name...easy to tell which one you have.  GREAT FEATURE!

Here is what stayed the same in the Eclipse Ozone Systems:

  1. 7-0594 Green, Exterior Ozone Supply Tubing
  2. 7-1140-07 Ozone Supply Check Valve (Tubing and Check Valve sold together in the 9-0770-01 Assembly)

Total Eclipse 24-Hour Ozone Systems come in two sizes (25K and 50K Gallons).

Here is what changed in the Total Eclipse Ozone Systems:

  1. Ozone Modules 5-1308-04 have been replaced with modern APG Ozone Modules (9-1056-01) which create more ozone, last longer, resist failure caused by water back-flow better, handle humidity better, are small and light-weight for less expensive shipping and environmental footprint
  2. The Total Eclipse Ozone Module Assemblies (9-1161-01 and 9-1160-01) are equipped with APG Ozone Modules on a easy-to-install base plate (so, buy the Assembly, not individual Ozone Modules)
  3. Ozone Supply Check Valve is no longer the expensive Teflon-Lined Tygon Tubing, (7-0403).  It is now the much less expensive "Spa Ozone Supply Check Valve," Part Number 7-1140-01
  4. Air Filter 7-0084 is no longer utilized.  Each APG Ozone Module (PN 9-0156-01) comes with an air filter, so no need to purchase one separately
  5. Indicator Lights on each APG Ozone Module!  Although the antiquated Red and Green Indicator Lights stay the same (see below, #2), once you open the lid you can finally tell which electrode(s) need servicing.  Thank you DEL!

Here is what stayed the same on the Total Eclipse Ozone Systems:

  1. The enclosures LOOK THE SAME.  It's hard to tell if the ozone generator is ORIGINAL or NEW STYLE without removing the lid, or examining the manufacturing date (anything after July 2014 has NEW APG Technology)
  2. The Red and Green Indicator lights that show on the outside of the Total Eclipse have not changed.  Red still indicates NO FLOW (note: will initially be red, then as water floods unit, red light turns off).  Green still means that you have power to the unit. Neither indicator light tells you if the ozone cells are producing ozone, though.  The NEW STYLE APG Ozone Modules have indicators on each ozone module (which is an awesome feature compared to old style!)
