How It Works - The Science of Aqueous Ozone
HOW WE GENERATE O3
O3waterworks bubbles oxygen and water through our proprietary and patented diamond electrolytic cell technology. An electric charge briefly separates the O2 molecules into O-atoms that then reforms into loosely-held O3 molecules that readily oxidize and destroy harmful microorganisms.
Our patented technology transforms ordinary tap water into enhanced oxygen (O3), a powerful oxidizing agent that works directly on any surfaces it comes in contact with.
In just 30 seconds O3 kills 99.9% of common bacteria and germs, then quickly reverts back to pure oxygen and water, so you are never exposed to any harmful chemicals.
O3 has been used by hospitals and hotels for over 100 years to purify and disinfect water on an industrial scale.
WHAT IS O3?
O3, also known as Enhanced Oxygen or Ozone, consists of three loosely bound oxygen atoms that readily give up an oxygen ion to react and oxidize with organic contaminants.
O3waterworks products create O3 Water by dissolving oxygen into water to create Oxygenated Water or Aqueous Ozone.
The cycle of oxygen and ozone is just like the cycle of water in nature. O3 is naturally occurring in our upper atmosphere created by ultraviolet rays. O3 is also created by waterfalls, ocean waves and lightning storms.
NOTE: O3 or Enhanced Oxygen or Aqueous Ozone is not the same thing as what you typically think of when you hear the word "Ozone". Meaning that it is not harmful for you, your washing machine or your environment.
