Ozone Frequently Asked Questions

Does one size fit all applications?

Yes. The ozone output of the Aero-Pure™ is significantly higher than UV light or other corona discharge ozone generators. To handle higher loading and clarification, simply increase the run time. If you have an extreme application, the units can be ganged together to achieve higher treatment capabilities.

How much energy does the Aero-Pure™ system use?

The Aero-Pure™ system uses only 60 watts of power while running. That is only pennies a day.

Will ozone effect the pH of the water?

Ozone has an insignificant affect on the pH of the water. Over time it may decrease the pH slightly.

What maintenance will I need to perform on my Aero-Pure™ system?

Depending on the location of the enclosure, you will need to check and clean the cooling fan intake monthly. The high output ozone cell will operate without maintenance for approximately 5 years or more in typical applications.
