What is the San-O3-tyzer™ actually doing
to the washer and my clothes to sanitize them?
The San-O3-tyzer™ 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
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
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-tyzer™ 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
Can I eliminate my use of detergent in
the San-O3-tyzer™ 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-tyzer™ 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
