How Long Should Ozone Generators Run For?

Our ozone generators are designed to fit a wide variety of applications. Ozone is 3,000 times more powerful, making it a good choice for killing bacteria and other contaminants in air and water. 

Air Applications

The A7K, Air-7000 and Air-3500 are heavy duty deodorizers designed to oxidize smells, odors and viruses from the air. Using all-natural ozone, the Air Series will eliminate harsh odors leaving the area fresh and sanitized.

Follow the guidelines below for shock treating rooms with the Air-7000 and Air-3500. Once the treatment is completed, allow the room to sit for at least 30 minutes before entering. Repeat the treatment if the odor is still present. Keep in mind, the Air-7000 is significantly more powerful than the Air-3500, so treatment times will vary between the units.

A7K, Air-7000 and Air-3500 Treatment Times

Room Size Estimated Time
Large Sized Room 3 to 4 hours
Medium Sized Room 1 to 2 hours
Small Room or Closet 30 minutes to 1 hour

Water Applications

The Aqua-8 can be used to purify water in containers, storage tanks, spas, bathtubs, fountains and wading pools. It can also be used to purify drinking water from well sources or city water supplies, removes undesirable tastes, chemicals, odors and colors caused by iron, copper, manganese, chlorine and organic chemicals such as pesticides, and herbicides. Do not use water from a source that is questionable such as a stagnant pool of water.

To treat water, place white or gray diffuser stone into the water container (no more than 4 inches deep) and leave the unit on the recommended program function for the correct time shown below. When completed turn off the Aqua-8 and allow twenty minutes for excess ozone to dissipate from the water. Higher output ozone generators are available from A2Z Ozone for well water and holding tanks when used in conjunction with a particulate filter. Ozone removes excess minerals including iron, manganese, lead, as well as radon and sulfur.

Aqua-8 Treatment Times

 Amount of Water Estimated Time
6oz - 12oz 2 minutes
1/2 gallon 10 minutes
1 gallon 20 minutes
