What is Ozone and why use it?
In essence, ozone is nothing more than oxygen (O2), with an extra oxygen atom (O3). This extra oxygen atom will bind (oxidation) in a split second to any component that it comes into contact with. Ozone can oxidize with all kinds of materials, but for water treatment we target odour and microorganisms like viruses, mould and bacteria.
Because ozone is made of oxygen and reverts to pure oxygen (after oxidation), it vanishes without trace once it has been used. Compare this with other disinfectants!
