Aquasure Ozonair Purifier Unit
The Aquasure Ozonair Purifier Unit will help control water borne algae and fungi, will lower bacteria levels in your pond giving your koi a more healthier environment to live in, also giving you visual enjoyment of being able to see your Koi.
The Aquasure Ozonair Purifier Unit must be used in conjunction with air pump and diffuser.
The Aquasure Ozonair Purifier Unit will help give good water clarity and take the colorants out of your pond by helping remove proteins from the water which leave a yellowy/brown tinge.
The Aquasure Ozonair Purifier Unit is a compact unit that simply connects to your air line.
Setting up requires nothing more than connecting an air line from your air pump to the ozone unit. Then connect the air line from the ozone unit to your inpond air outlet. Be it ceramic disc/stones,aerated drain,aerated retro dome etc.(This unit will also help reduce build up of algae and limescale to the above.)
Plug the Aquasure Ozonair Purifier Unit in and it will produce 0.027mg of ozone per minute giving you 1.62 mg of ozone per hour. The unit is extremely cost effective as it uses only 9 watts of power! The only maintenance required is a six monthly bulb replacement
Ozone occurs naturally in the atmosphere. When a molecule of Oxygen, O², is bound to a third oxygen atom, it becomes ozone, or 0³. Ozone is an unstable bluish water-soluble gas with a characteristic smell. In low levels it makes the air smell fresh and its colour makes the sky blue. Ozone is the 2nd strongest known oxidiser known to man and the most powerful readily available water sanitiser. It kills bacteria and viruses 3,125 times faster and is a 50% stronger oxidiser than chlorine.
Ozone can be produced by two methods.
Corona discharge method.
This is the most popular type of ozone generator for most industrial and personal uses. While variations of the "hot spark" coronal discharge method of ozone production exist, including medical grade and industrial grade ozone generators, these units usually work by means of a corona discharge tube.
Most of the ozone in the atmosphere is created when the high-energy ultraviolet rays of the Sun reach the rarefied gas molecules of the stratosphere. The ultraviolet energy excites the oxygen atoms, and they combine to form O3.
The Aquasure Ozonair Purifier Unit uses the latter.
This compact unit has an inlet where you connect your air line from your air pump, and an outlet which connects via airline to your in pond air outlet (ceramic disc, aerated retro dome etc).
The benefits of this unit are that the only maintenance is the six monthly replacement of a bulb. We have tested this unit for the last six weeks and been very impressed with the results.
After a couple of days their was a distinct improvement in water clarity and the dissolved oxygen levels had risen slightly.The PH and ORP remained unchanged.
It does break down in the pond thus removing dissolved organic molecules and it also raises the dissolved oxygen level of water. The power consumption of this unit is 9 watts.
