About Ozone

Ozone (O3) is a powerful sanitizer that:

  • Is made up of three oxygen atoms and is readily found in nature
  • Has long been used in water treatment, food sterilization and medical therapies for its remarkable anti-viral, and anti-fungal properties
  • Rapidly oxidizes bacteria it comes in contact with, then converts safely back into Oxygen (O2)

Only pure oxygen and water remain after the ozone cleans and sanitizes.
Harmless to people, the ozone quickly attacks and eliminates contaminants it comes in contact with.
The ozone is attracted to germs, stains and bacteria.
Inside the lotusĀ® unit, oxygen from the air is safely turned into ozone then
infused into ordinary tap water.

Where does ozone come from?

Ozone is created naturally when sunlight or lightning adds an extra oxygen atom to some of the O2 molecules in the air. Some of this ozone is then infused into rain drops, resulting in aqueous ozone. Aqueous ozone can safely be used as a replacement for traditional chemical cleaners and kills all known food and human pathogens.
