The O-Zone: Today's Lesson: To Dry or Not to Dry

Ozone is a gas made from oxygen. One of the processes used to produce ozone is called corona discharge (CD). The CD method is a combination of high voltage electricity and air, dry air or oxygen in a given space.
The efficiency of the ozone generator (ozonator) is based on the quality of the incoming feed gas.

Despite the information with which consumers are presented, ultimately the decision is theirs. When purchasing bottled water, knowing what you are getting requires some research and understanding.
