Ozone Generation is an approved technology for drinking water treatment by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and has long been recognized as an effective method of treating drinking water to improve taste and safety for municipalities, small communities, and residences.
It is one of the strongest disinfectants approved for potable drinking water treatment capable of inactivating waterborne microorganisms and other bacteria and viruses such as Giardia and Cryptosporidium.
- Removal of organic and inorganic compounds.
- Removal of micro-pollutants, such as pesticides.
- Enhancement of the flocculation/coagulation decantation process.
- Enhanced disinfection and reduction of disinfection by-products.
- Odor and taste elimination.
- Cryptosporidium is a microscopic parasite that causes the diarrheal disease cryptosporidiosis. Both the parasite and the disease are commonly known as "Crypto."
There are many species of Cryptosporidium that infect animals, some of which also infect humans. The parasite is protected by an outer shell that allows it to survive outside the body for long periods of time and makes it very tolerant to chlorine disinfection.
While this parasite can be spread in several different ways, water (drinking water and recreational water) is the most common way to spread the parasite. Cryptosporidium is a leading cause of waterborne disease among humans in the United States. .
- Giardia is a microscopic parasite that causes the diarrheal illness known as giardiasis. Giardia (also known as Giardia intestinalis, Giardia lamblia, or Giardia duodenalis) is found on surfaces or in soil, food, or water that has been contaminated with feces (poop) from infected humans or animals.
Giardia is protected by an outer shell that allows it to survive outside the body for long periods of time and makes it tolerant to chlorine disinfection. While the parasite can be spread in different ways, water (drinking water and recreational water) is the most common mode of transmission.
