How Does The Ozone Pure Water Systems Work?
Soluble ferrous iron, which is not filterable, is oxidized (the process of adding oxygen) to insoluble ferric iron thus making it easily filtered. Bacterial iron can be killed through oxidation and by denying its food source (ferris iron).
Odorous hydrogen sulfide, which is not filterable, is quickly converted to elemental sulfur, which can be easily filtered. A portion of the sulfur is de-volatized and off gassed in step #2. Again, the bacterial form is killed and filtered.
Manganese is oxidized and filtered in the same manner as iron.
Ozone oxidizes the organic material in bacterial membranes, which weakens the cell wall and leads to cellular rupture. This exposes the organism to the external environment, which causes almost immediate death of the cell. It’s similar to a knife deeply cutting skin. (Bacteria systems are sized differently than iron, sulfur and manganese systems)
