Frequently Asked Questions
What is the San-O3-Wash™ actually doing to the washer and my clothes to sanitize them?
The San-O3-Wash™ injects ozone into the water used to fill the washer. Ozone is injected at a level high enough to meet the government set standard for sanitization.
What is ozone?
Ozone is “active oxygen”, nature’s special element. (Each ozone molecule consists of three oxygen atoms.) It is also a natural purifier, and an alternative water purifier to traditional chemicals such as chlorine and bromine. In a laundry application, ozone destroys bacteria, viruses, mold and mildew, while eliminating spores, fungus, oil, and other contaminants, leaving water (and your clothes) clean and sparkling clear.
How does the use of ozone affect my wash besides the sanitization?
Due to the use of ozone, a greater amount of soil will be dissolved and drained with the water. It also leads to reductions in the use of laundry detergents and water use, shorter laundry cycle times, and longer textile life.
Is ozone “green”?
Yes! Besides naturally occurring in the atmosphere, ozone reacts so quickly with contaminants, that it converts back to oxygen within minutes (sometimes even seconds). Any ozone molecules that break free will convert to oxygen and never reach the atmosphere.
How do I know there is enough Ozone in my water to sanitize my clothes and washers?
The San-O3-Wash™ is designed to deliver a varying amount of ozone based on the number of washers filling at any given time. The water is tested for its Oxidation Reduction Potential level at the water inlet fitting to the washing machine at system installation and periodically throughout the year during regular maintenance procedures.
Can I eliminate my use of detergent in the San-O3-Wash™ wash process?
No, the detergent is still required to transport the soil removed and lifted from your clothes to the drain; however, substantially less detergent is required than in a non-ozonated wash.
Can I eliminate the use of bleach in the San-O3-Wash™ wash process?
If your intent is to remove color or stains you will still require bleach. While ozone has the ability to disinfect, it is totally safe with all colors and fabrics.
