Cleaning Well Water with Ozone Generator

How to Clean Well Water with Ozone Generator

Lovely Home in Vancouver

Lovely Home on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada

Have you ever considered what life would be like without potable water? A2Z Ozone may have a solution for you. Ozone generators can be installed to work with well water systems.

Recently, we heard from our customer James, whose family lives in a lovely home on wooded land on Vancouver Island, British Columbia. But clean water was an issue. “Our initial concern was tea-colored well water,” James tells A2Z Ozone. Not only did the water from the well run tea-colored; upon analysis, James said it contained a high content of bacteria, tannins, and manganese with a PH level of 6.8.

Taking Action

James took action to care for his family and his dog, cat, bird, and two horses by resolving to fix the water issues. First, he chlorinated the well and water piping in the house, then drained and flushed the hot water tank. He ordered an MP-3000 Ozone Generator. In an effort to conserve water, James upgraded the toilets in the home to dual flush. He also installed a more energy-efficient washing machine and dishwasher.

The power of an ozone generator

The MP-3000 Ozone Generator is an excellent choice for the project James undertook. It gives up to 3 grams of ozone per hour. Considered a heavy-duty ozone generator, one of the MP-3000’s typical uses is for water sanitizing. The results are phenomenal. As James put it, “…with the ozone treatment we now have sanitary, crystal clear water.” James is relieved to see pure water coming out of his faucets. He says this system provides water for washing vehicles and watering plants. He has even filled a swimming pool and a fish pond.

Technical specifications of the system

James kindly provided us with the technical specs:

  • He connected the MP-3000 Ozone Generator to an ozone-resistant air injector (Waterite W988Z Micronizer) upstream of a 40-gallon degasser tank (the Duro 33155 FLS40D Flexpro Tank).
  • Connected to the degasser tank are a multimedia filter (the Duro 4111 WGULTRAMF100) and an activated carbon filter with PH increase (the Duro 4913 CAN-15).

Where does the excess ozone go? It is vented outside by an automatic vent valve provided by Honeywell Braukmann Q122A1001. Altogether, James spent approximately $2000 on the equipment for the project, not including the cost of a pressure tank and pump that were already in place.

Hi Jean, The question you are asking depends on the contaminants in the water, and the temperature of the water. James kept 40 gallons or so of water in the holding. You can have your well water tested, which we recommend. Then, if you need assistance choosing a generator and installing a system, please call us at 502-499-4977, Option 2 for tech support. Or, you can email us at We are available Monday through Friday, 8 am to 4 pm, Eastern.

This is a question: I have a well. How much water will this use to regenerate & how often?


Nice , clean system
