Ozone Drinking Water

ozone drinking water setupOzone is a more powerful oxidizing agent than chlorine but unlike chlorine, it does not lead to the formation of THMs (tri-halomethanes) or complex chlorinated compounds which are believed to cause cancer.

In Europe, the large majority of municipal water treatment plants rely on ozone meanwhile, in North America many chlorine-based municipal plants have been converted to ozone - and more are on the way.

Ozonated drinking water is becoming the norms for worldwide treatment especially in developing countries where they lack chemical handling personnel & safe storage of treating chemicals such as Chlorine.

Ozone drinking water will eliminate the following drinking water problems :

  • Bacteria, including iron bacteria
  • Heavy metals such as iron and manganese
  • Air-borne and water-borne pathogen treatment
  • Organic contaminants such as tannin and algae
  • Parasites such as Cryptosporidium, Giardia
  • Amoebaes
  • All known viruses
  • Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD) and Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD)
