Not Just a Treat March 03 2017, 0 Comments

Do you wake up on some mornings thinking about what to eat for breakfast? You need something healthy or maybe you are someone who regularly loves fresh fruit or vegetables in the morning. Some daily issues we are faced with is cost and shelf life of our fresh produce. Some produce stays fresh longer than a cup of raspberries, and some of us that enjoy these with cereal or pancakes frequently, find that it can’t stay fresh a long time. Buying in bulk is not a good option in some cases.

 

Maybe you heard of ozone treatment or use currently an ozone generator to wash your produce with. It is not only extending shelf life up to three weeks on some produce depending on conditions and storage, but it removes bacteria, viruses, E. coli, and your fruits and vegetables taste fresh. “Research and commercial applications have indicated that ozone can replace chlorine with more benefits. In 1997, ozone was self-affirmed as Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) as a disinfectant for foods by an independent panel of experts sponsored by EPRI. This self-affirmation was timely for the produce industry in light of the President’s Fruit and Vegetable Safety Initiative. The produce industry is successfully using ozone all over the world.” (Ozone Safe Food Technologies, Inc.)  In 2000, FDA and USDA approval was granted.

 

To treat your produce with ozone, fill your sink with water and place the Aqua-6 diffuser stone 2 to 4 inches deep in sink. Place the fruit and/or vegetables to be treated in the water and operate the Aqua-6 for 15 minutes by selecting Function #4 (Average sized sinks should be half-full). Follow the same procedure above to wash your raw food and meat. For utensils, rinse off food debris and treat in clean water with ozone for 15 minutes. Our Aqua-6 Multi Purpose Ozone Generator is our best seller and practical to use for many other applications like ozonating drinking water, dental hygiene, odor removal, and making natural liquid oil. It can be used with fish tank, spas, hot tubs, and wading pools up to 500 gallons.

Alternatives to pool chemicals February 17 2017, 0 Comments

                                             Alternatives to pool chemicals

      Airway irritation, wheezing, sore throat, coughing, chest tightness, eye irritation, hair discoloration and brittleness, skin irritation and faded bathing suits. Swimming has always been a summertime favorite, however, the side effects of spending too much time in harsh chemicals like Chlorine complicate an otherwise fun seasonal experience. Chlorine alternatives are available, but generations have effectively relied on Chlorine and it still dominates the market on pool treatment. It has been accepted as an unfortunate necessity that goes with pool ownership that must be tolerated, but it does not have to be. There must be something better on the market that allows families to enjoy crystal clear water without swimming through chemical-filled water.               Woman swimming in ozone water




   Saltwater pool systems are an alternative growing in popularity, but the idea of salty pool water is not always the most attractive option to pool owners. In truth, saltwater pools only have approximately 1/10 the salinity of seawater. Chlorine alternative may not be an accurate title for this method due to the fact that saltwater pools are not actually Chlorine free. On the contrary, through a process called electrolysis, where the saltwater is forced through a high-power cell, the saltwater systems produce their own Chlorine.
