WHAT IS OZONE
OZONE AND VERIPURE
IS OZONE PURIFIED WATER SAFE FOR MY FAMILY TO DRINK?
OZONE USES IN THE WATER INDUSTRY
OZONE AND THE FDA
VeriPure Provides a three-layered system. The first two levels of filtration are followed by injecting powerful ozone gas as a final stage disinfectant which ensure flavorful and safe drinking water.
- As Water passes through the first sediment filter dirt, rust and other particulates from the water are removed.
- The water is then filtered a second time when it passes through the carbon block filter which reduces cysts, chlorine, organics and other impurities.
- The final stage, Ozone is dissolved into the water as it flows to the POU.
HOW MUCH OZONE IS DISSOLVED INTO THE WATER?
The VeriPure patented process createsLow Level Ozone Technology. The ozone concentration in the water ranges between 0.4 - 0.7 ppm.
IS WATER TREATED BY OZONE SAFE TO DRINK?
The answer is yes, the Ozone reverts back to Oxygen very quickly. To give an idea of how much ozone is in the water, 0.40 parts per million is the equivalent to one inch in 64 miles. The Ozone in the water is within the guidelines for ozone established by the FDA Bottled Water Regulations. Ozone was first discovered in 1840 and has been used to treat municipal drinking water since 1905.
DOES OZONE AFFECT THE TASTE OF THE WATER
Initially, there is a slight aroma of Ozone at the POU (Point Of Use). This dissipates after a short period of time, Approximately 20 seconds leaving you with pure, clean, odorless drinking water.
HOW DOES THE VERIPURE SYSTEM TREAT WATER FOR DRINKING?
IS THE OZONE GAS RELEASED INTO THE AIR BY VERIPURE TREATED WATER HARMFUL?
No. Your VeriPure System uses low levels of ozone to treat your water which is harmless when off gased as it reverts to Oxygen quickly. Ozone is classified as an irritating gas only in high concentrations. The EPA has established strict guidelines limiting 0.1 parts per million in the air for eight hours of continous exposure. Only a small portion of ozone in the treated water is released momentarily into the air. If all the ozone in one gallon of water were released into one cubic foot of air, the level would amount to 0.03 parts per million and would revert to oxygen within a few minutes.
WHAT IF MY WATER DOESN'T TASTE GOOD?
If your water suddenly has a bad taste, the problem could be the filter cartridge(s) are spent. Changing the filters may take care of taste. Refer to "Filter Change" instructions in your manual or contact your distributor or VeriPure directly.
IF I WANT TO REDUCE THE "POPPING" WHEN I INITIALLY TURN ON MY VERIPURE FAUCET, WHAT CAN I DO?
After you have the faucet running, gradually decrease the flow of water by shutting the faucet off slowly (watching for the water stream to become clear and void of bubbles). Once the steam is clear and void of bubbles you can shut the faucet completly off. The next time you turn the faucet on there will be no "pop" becuase there will be no pressure left in the line from the previous use.
