Ozone has 20- 30 times more disinfection power then Chlorine & it's derivatives . The required contact time for ozone disinfection is typically 4-5 times less than that of chlorine. Moreover, ozone does not form any THMs (tri-halomethanes) or complex chlorinated compounds which have been linked to cancer.
See link below the Ozone disinfection capabilities on typical pathogens & micro-organisms
For these reasons ozone is being used in a variety to industries including :
- Drinking water treatment including municipal water treatment

Here are just a few areas where ozone is used for disinfection purposes
Government of Canada does not recognize the fact that ozone destroys all bacteria, viruses, etc. and could be used as a sole disinfectant in swimming pools, cooling towers and similar water treatment applications. Therefore any claims on this website about ozone disinfecting properties cannot be used or be accepted in any such applications in Canada. Use of ozone as a sole disinfectant for bottling water and food disinfection purposes is allowed in Canada and is approved by Canadian Health Agencies.
