Ozone (O3) is a natural, colourless gas made up of three oxygen atoms. The third oxygen atom in ozone is unstable and combines easily with organic and inorganic molecules to destroy or change them through oxidation. After oxidation, the resulting by-product is oxygen (O2). This process effectively deodorises, disinfects and destroys many of the pathogens that contaminate tap water.
Ozone will break down or oxidise almost anything that it contacts, making it an extremely powerful disinfectant and oxidiser. In fact, it is a much stronger oxidiser than chlorine and is the second strongest commercially available disinfectant in the water treatment industry, after the hydroxyl free radical.
Benefits and uses
Ozone disinfection has been used in water treatment since 1906. Having an ozone water generator like the Ionmax ION10 at home ensures that you can have the same, high quality, clean water at home for everyday use.
Ozone water’s various benefits and uses include:
- Eliminates various contaminants including viruses, bacteria, fungi and algae from water
- Sanitises food by killing yeast, mould and bacteria
- Removes pesticide residues from fruits and vegetables
- Purifies or detoxifies the blood of microorganisms by rupturing their cell walls
- Kills some cancer cells, slows tumour growth, and may stop the spread of cancer
- Minimises bacterial growth, control parasites and eliminate transmission of diseases through water
- Provides more oxygen to the brain
- Boosts the immune system
Its exceptional disinfectant and oxidation properties make ozone water ideal for drinking, cleaning, food preparation, and other household applications such as cleaning fish tanks, sterilising cutlery and tools, and deodorising laundry. Apart from that, ozone water also helps to treat fungal infections and skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, acne, blackheads and pimples.
Economical and efficient
The Ionmax ION10 produces ozone water using the corona discharge method. It makes use of the water pressure from your faucet to produce hydroturbine power. At the same time it sucks in air from the outside to create ozone, which is then injected into the water stream.
Easy to use and install
The Ionmax ION10 Ozone Water Generator comes with various fitting adapters for easy installation onto different faucet types. It also features a change lever for switching between tap water and ozone water. The unit does not need batteries or electricity to run and easy to clean and maintain – simply wipe clean with a damp cloth.
