Protecting Ozone Treatments
Ozone is a disinfection treatment that utilizes short-lived ozone molecules. These molecules are very strong oxidants that react very quickly and violently with organic matter. Because ozone molecules have such a short half-life, they are much more efficient at oxidizing dissolved organic molecules and single cell organisms than solid chunks of organic matter. Orival filters can remove these chunks; thereby, greatly decreasing the required concentration of ozone.
