Convert Normal Tap Water into a Super Cleaner!

Frequently Asked Questions

What Does Ozonated Water Do?
Ozonated water cleans, sanitizes and deodorizes. Ozone can remove dirt and grime like many household cleaners, but also sanitizes bacteria and germs that live on surfaces without using bleach, alcohol and other chemicals. Finally, ozonated water deodorizes and leaves a fresh clean scent. The smell of ozone generating is similar to the smell of the air during a thunderstorm.

How is Ozonated Water Generated?
BoiE using an electrolytic ozone cell (EOC) submerged in tap water to generate aqueous ozone. The ultra-efficient EOC uses a small amount of electricity to split apart water molecules into hydrogen and oxygen. The oxygen recombines to create ozone, one of nature's most powerful sanitizers, converting normal Tap Water into a Super Cleaner!

How is Tap Water Significant?
Tap water contains small amounts of dissolved minerals that give the water its taste. Minerals conduct electricity, allowing an electrolytic ozone cell (EOC) to function. Distilled water has no minerals and will not work. Highly-filtered water won't work as well because it has few minerals. If necessary, trace amounts of minerals can be added to water to make it more conductive.

Is Ozonated Water (Aqueous Ozone) a Green Technology?
Yes, aqueous ozone is the greenest of Green Technology because it is sustainable and entirely chemical free, which helps protect your family and the environment. No re-purchasing cleaners or containers, just refill.

Isn't Gaseous Ozone Dangerous to Breathe?
Yes, but when generated and dissolved within water, the aqueous ozone is not airborne or breathable. Any slight off-gassing when the ozone is applied is well below the EPA's permissible limit of .05 PPM.

Can I spray Ozonated Water on Anything?
You can spray aqueous ozone on any surface that would be safe to spray with tap water. This includes fabrics such as couches and bedding, however ozonated water sanitizes hard surfaces the best. The ozone concentration is not high enough to damage most materials, however if there is a concern, test on a small area first.

Does Ozonated Water Leave a Residue?
When you start with water, which is H2O, there is nothing else to leave behind once the ozonated water evaporates. After the ozonated water is sprayed and the ozone does its cleaning, any remaining ozone quickly reverts to normal oxygen, leaving no residue behind.

What is the Difference Between Electrolytic Ozone Water and Salt-based Cleaners?
Salt contains chloride, which can be electrolyzed in water to generate hypochlorous acid (HOCl). Chlorine-based sanitizers act slower than aqueous ozone and leave a powdery residue that's composed of hypochlorous acid and sodium hydroxide. Hypochlorous acid is a sanitizer only. A separate cleaner must be used. Aqueous ozone performs both cleaning and sanitizing.

Have Your Ozone Disinfection Products been Lab-tested?
Yes, we have sponsored tests of our devices at accredited laboratories where scientists used tap water in our devices to test against bacteria and viruses.
See results. Our devices can infuse water with several parts per million (PPM) of ozone depending on tap water characteristics and operation times. Less than 0.5 PPM is required for ozone to disinfect. The higher the PPM the shorter the dwell time required to sanitize. At least 30 seconds is required to disinfect and 2-5 minutes of contact time is recommended.

What is the Difference between Cleaning, Sanitizing and Disinfecting?
Cleaners remove pathogens but don't kill them. An example is wiping off a dirty surface with a wash rag. Sanitizers kill 99.9% of pathogens. An example is spraying a recently-cleaned surface with a liquid rated to kill 99.9% of germs. Disinfectants are liquids rated to kill 99.999% of pathogens. Aqueous ozone is rated as all three by independent, EPA-certified labs.

Is it Safe to Add Anything to the Tap Water?
A small amount of lemon juice (citric acid) added to tap water will not harm the electrolytic ozone cell and will help keep it clean by helping to dissolve mineral deposits. Do not add petroleum products.

Can Ozonated Water Replace All Cleaning Products?
Aqueous ozone is a degreaser, an all-purpose cleaner, a super sanitizer and a deodorizer, great for killing germs and general household cleaning. Ozonated water can replace most cleaning products. However, ozonated water does not remove baked-on grease and grime that requires special cleaners and abrasion.

What is Your Warranty?

We offer a 1-year unlimited warranty and lifetime customer support. During the first year we will send replacement parts to you at no charge to repair or replace anything that goes wrong. We will also perform the labor at no charge if the customer ships the unit to us at his/her expense. After the first year the customer can extend the warranty for an annual fee, or purchase replacement parts when needed.

What is Your Return Policy?
We offer a 30-day money-back guarantee with the following conditions:

  • A return authorization is requested.
  • The product is sent back to us in its original packaging within 30 days of receipt.
  • The returned item is in like-new condition with all accessories.
  • You are only allowed to return a total of one item. If you are unsure about a product, order one and test if for your application, then you can order more at a later date.
  • Shipping expenses (both ways) are not refundable
  • Refunds (less shipping expenses) are processed 10 days after receipt at our office. This gives us time to receive and test the returned item. Your bank may also have a few days of processing delay to return the funds back to your card.

What is Your Lead Time for Orders?
Most aqueous ozone spray products and water purifiers ship within 2 business days. Machines are hand-built in one of two production facilities. Some specialized equipment or larger orders may require additional time. The average lead time for specialized equipment and larger orders is 3-5 days.

How Do You Ship Products?
We ship by Fedex, UPS or U.S. Mail shipping depending on the type of product and the shipping location. Products labeled "Free Shipping" require a street address within the contiguous U.S. to ship by Fedex Ground. Orders shipped to a P.O. Box or Alaska/Hawaii may incur an additional shipping fee depending on the product weight. We will notify you when your item is complete and provide a tracking number when it ships. If the lead time to build your equipment order is excessive, we will contact you and confirm that you want us to proceed. For orders outside the United States, contact us first for a shipping quote.
