For £134.99 Get The Ozone Unit And Aerated Dome
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 (O3) is a triatomic molecule, consisting of three oxygen atoms. It is an allotrope of oxygen that is much less stable than the diatomic O2.
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 Air Micro Ozone 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.
We decided to let a customer of ours trial it for an unbiased view.
Paul Brindley kindly agreed and was also impressed with the results.
He reported that after a week his clarity had improved and also a reduction of docs.
Also his aerated retro dome(which was requiring weekly maintenance)had performed maintenance free with the ozone unit attached.
We also noticed that the ceramic air diffusers we had connected to the ozone unit were more efficient than the ones in the same pond just connected to air pumps.
We would like to thank Paul for his unbiased opinion.
Due to no change in the oxidation or reduction potential readings this unit produces a very low amount of ozone.We are awaiting results so we can inform you exactly how much it does produce.
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.

No excavation required - allowing for easy retrofitting for existing ponds.
New Mk 2 with 8 mm Air Pipe Straight through
We have now made this unit with 8mm air pipe straight through due to customer's request's.
It is said that you cannot beat a bottom drain system. But If you already have a pond that does not have a bottom drain but wish you had installed one, or if you have a bottom drain and want to install another here is the answer.
This new aerated portable weighted bottom dome that sits on the floor of your pond which requires no digging or intensive labour. Just simply place the self weighted bottom dome in your pond and attach a pipe which can be either 2" rigid pipe work or flexi pipe from either an internal pump or an external pond pump, now just connect to a air pump with either a 4mm or 8mm air line to aerate the perforated membrane on top of the dome and enjoy all the benefits of a aerated bottom drain with minimal expense.
Improves water circulation, helps remove suspended particles and debris from the bottom of your pond reducing maintenance.
This new aerated dome is up to 30% more efficient in pulling the solid waste into the drain compared with the non aerated version.
This item comes complete with a 90 degree bend and a stepped hose tail and 5 mts of air line to fit into a 4mm or 8 mm connector.
This unit will take 2" pipe work direct to the 90 degree bend.
