No, Ozobox is a portable device. It should be placed on a flat surface at an ideal average height of about 1 meter, but it can also be fixed to the wall, for example, of the kitchen or living room using the brackets provided. It does not need to be connected to the home plumbing system and its use does not require any masonry work.
Ozobox must be connected to a normal power outlet. It is turned on by pressing the button located on the front at the bottom center. Once turned on, just select the desired program and press the play button.
It lasts a lifetime.
No, Ozobox does not need any filter or cartridge. Its technology exploits the oxygen present in the air and water, from which a small amount of ozone is produced. Ozone oxidizes microorganisms and odor particles, thus performing a 100% natural sanitizing, sanitizing and deodorant action, without the need for spare parts and chemical detergents.
Even if it is not used regularly, Ozobox always works perfectly.
In cases where the microbial load is high, it is normal to notice at the end of the treatment a slight odor that is formed due to the oxidation of the cells of the microorganisms, the more noticeable the more intense the oxidation-sanitizing action has been. The presence of this smell is not a symptom of device malfunction, on the contrary it is the proof of the correct sanitization of the room by microorganisms and polluting agents. After the treatment, it is always recommended to air the room for a few minutes, in case of particular sensitivity.
Sterilization means the death of all microorganisms present in the air and water, a condition that is difficult to reach in a normal environment. More realistically, we speak of disinfection meaning the maximum possible reduction of germs obtained by physical (irradiation, heating) or chemical means (chlorine, antibiotics, ammonium salts).
Like all highly disinfectant agents, ozone also has a certain degree of toxicity. Chlorine, for example, if present in excessive doses makes the taste of the water unpleasant and irritates the eyes and mucous membranes in the pool. Ozone is therefore not toxic in itself, but only at high concentrations. According to the selected program, Ozobox produces the necessary amount of ozone, neither lower nor higher, to sanitize correctly from microorganisms and odors. The whole process is managed automatically by an electronic control unit, a condition that makes the production of ozone safe, with precise and adequate dosage to preserve the safety of people, animals, plants and objects. Ozobox also has two safety systems: the first is activated in the event of accidental entry into the room by blocking the production of ozone, the second at the end of each treatment, for the recovery of ozone and its conversion into oxygen.
