FAQ

General

What kind of technology is used in A2Z Ozone generators?

Our generators use corona discharge technology.

How do I determine the best unit for me?

Determining what application you require (air, water or oil) and how many square feet or gallons of water you are wanting to ozonate at one time will help us narrow down what unit will work for you. If you want a multi-purpose model that has a continuous use setting, you will need an MP-3000 or above. The ever-popular Aqua-6 Multi-Purpose or Aqua-8 Personal Multi-Purpose units are great products for customers new to ozone generators.

Can I be in the room when my unit is running?

The short answer: It depends on which unit you are running. If you are running the Aqua-6 or an Aqua-8, you should be good to go. However, it is a rare occurrence that someone will have an allergic reaction to ozone. Consult your physician or practitioner for more information. The Aqua-6 produces 600 mg/hour of ozone. It is strong enough to freshen up a small closet and produce ozonated water for the purposes of washing fruits and vegetables, drinking and bathing. Meanwhile, the A7K produces 7,000 mg/hour of ozone and is made to eradicate foul odors such as smoke damage and kill mold and mildew. If you're running the A7K under no circumstances is it safe to be in the room.

When using the ozonator, do I need to turn off the internal air compressor if I do not have an oxygen generator/tank/concentrator, etc. attached?

No, if you do not have an external oxygen accessory you do not need to turn the compressor off. Only turn the internal air compressor off if you are using an external oxygen accessory.

What are the stones for?

For the MP-Series, Aqua-6 and Aqua-8, the stones are for water. For the Industrial Series, the stones are used for both water and oil.

What is PPM and how does it relate to ozone generators?

Parts Per Million. This is used to represent how much ozone is in the air or water.

Can I drink the water that I ozonate?

Our customers do often purchase the Aqua-6 to ozonate water to drink. Some of our employees also drink the ozonated water from our Aqua Touch faucet ozone generator. You can drink it right away, with the taste and smell of ozone, or you can wait 20-30 minutes for the ozone to dissipate.

How much ozonated water is too much to drink?

This question is truly a question for your practitioner or doctor. We do not understand the workings of the human body. Instead, we work with the ozone machine.

How long should I wait to drink my ozonate water after ozonating?

Ozone dissipates out of the water within 20-30 minutes. If you are drinking it after that time, it will just be clean oxidized water.

Are my pets safe around ozone?

See: "Can I be in the room when my unit is running?" Generally, remember the Three P's: No Pets, No Plants, No People.

How do I fix. . .?

If you are having any issues with your unit, please contact us at the office at 502-499-4977 or service@a2zozone.com so that we can help you troubleshoot your issue. If you unit needs new parts or repair, we will be able to determine that as well.

How much ozone do the units put out?

It depends on the model. For example, the MP-1000 puts our 1000 mg/1g per hour, MP-3000 puts our 3000 mg/3g per hour, etc. Each model we have will specify maximum output on the product page.

What are the gamma measurements for my particular unit?

We at A2Z Ozone are aware that many people use ozone technologies for medical applications. Unfortunately, we are not practitioners or doctors, and we do not have one on site to assist customers with these questions. We are experts in the ozone machines only. Please contact your doctor or practitioner for these measurements.

Do you have distributors in my area?

Everything is shipped out of our warehouse. We can ship almost anywhere in the world (UPS, USPS, FedEx, DHL) and have it arrive exactly where you want it.

Air Applications

What is the best location to put the ozonator?

The best location is to put the ozone generator in the room where the odors are the strongest. If the odor is throughout the entire house or apartment, place the unit near the intake to facilitate mixing of the ozone throughout the area.

Will the ozone go through walls?

No. Ozone cannot pass through walls freely. It can only occupy open spaces.

Will ozone ruin my leather furniture or electronic equipment?

Ozone is a powerful oxidizer but the concentrations generated from our rental units will not ruin any materials or equipment inside your house. The PPM is not high enough to have an impact on the furniture or equipment.

Will the odor removal be permanent?

Yes. Using our units will be permanent as long as the source of the odor is removed.

Which unit is best for shock treatment of air?

The A7K is a powerful model with dual plate activation designed for shock treatments. If you live in the Louisville, KY area, you can even rent one by the day or week!

How long do the generators last?

Our generators are built to be repairable. The average amount of time before replacement parts need to be ordered is about 2 years for new units.

Pool Applications

How is ozone released into the water?

Via Venturi Injector.

What is a Venturi Injector?

A Venturi Injector can be used with any of our products to help inject ozone or other gases into water. While the injector can be paired with any of our generators, it is needed for the SP (Swimming Pool) and Aquatic units. It works by using pressurized water in the inlet side of the Venturi Injector to decrease absolute pressure, thereby creating a vacuum. This vacuum allows for any additive material to be drawn through the suction port and mixed with the water stream. As your infused water exits the Venturi Injector, it becomes reconverted into lower pressure energy. This process combines two different substances to create a fluid mix of the two, then releases the combined products through the outlet side.

How long will ozone last in my pool?

It depends on the temperature. See ozone solubility below:

How much chemical treatment will I need to supplement the ozone?

Reduce the chemicals in your pool by up to 95% with ozone. That is to say, use only 5% of the amount of algae killer, for example, that you were adding before.

Will humidity impact the pool?

Humidity and other catalytic effects can cause variances in the amount of ozone that is produced.

Is ozone safe for the pool equipment?

As long as it is not an incompatible material. Below is a chart that shows the impact of ozone on common materials. As you can see, Copper and PTFE are very resistant, while Rubber is not ozone resistant.
