Frequently Asked Questions
What Are The Most Important Benefits of The VeriPure System?
Years of scientific research and development led to the invention of the patented VeriPure System which kills germs and disinfects while providing safe and wonderful tasting drinking water that also deordorizes. VeriPure can disinfect surfaces, such as cutting boards, sinks and dishes. Rinsing fruits, vegetables, produce and meats can minimize exposure to microbiological contamination. Rinsing with VeriPure can prolong the shelf life of your food. The ozone leaves no chemical residue on such surfaces because it reverts to its original oxygen form very quickly. VeriPure can be a cost-effective alternative to bottled water. VeriPure produces the same high quality water using NSF certified water filtration and ozone disinfection similar to that in a commercial water bottling plant for just pennies per gallon without waste or harming the environment.
How Does The VeriPure System Treat Water For Drinking?
VeriPure provides two levels and types of NSF certified water filtration and then injects ozone gas as a final stage. As waster passes through the first particulate filter dirt, rust and other particulates from the water are removed. Water is then filtered a second time when it passes through a micron carbon block filter which removes cysts, chlorine, organics and other impurities. In the final stage, ozone injection destroys micro-organisms (if present).
How Much Ozone Is Injected Into The Water?
The ozone level in the water at one half (½) gallon per minute is between .4 and .15 parts per million. As a form of comparison, this is the mid-range of ozone required by the FDA and state health departments for disinfection in bottled water plants. VeriPure is completely safe and effective.
Is The Ozone Safe to Drink?
Yes, definitely. The ozone turns back into oxygen very quickly. To put in perspective how much ozone is in the water, .25 parts per million is the equivalent to one inch in 64 miles. The ozone in the water is completely safe and well within the safe guidelines for ozone established by the FDA Bottled Water Regulations. Ozone was first discovered in 1840 and has been used to treat municipal drinking water since 1905.
Does The Ozone Affect The Taste of The Water?
Only in a positive way. There is a slight aroma of ozone, much like the smell of fresh rain water after a thunderstorm, when VeriPure water is consumed instantly. Any slight odor is gone in seconds. Extensive taste tests have shown that people with very sensitive taste thresholds do not detect any ozone taste in the water. In fact, due to the high oxygen level in the water, people report a fresh flavor and some have compared it to drinking from a mountain stream near a waterfall.
If Ozone Will Attack Germs In The Water, Why Doesn’t It Affect People’s Mouths?
The concentration of ozone dissolved in the water is far too low to impact the mucus membrane of the mouth, throat or stomach. While there is enough ozone to impact bacteria in the mouth when first consumed, the water undergoes a rapid temperature change causing the ozone to revert to oxygen very rapidly. By drinking and flushing your mouth with VeriPure, you gain all the benefits of killing germs in your mouth without the harsh taste or feel of mouthwash.
Is The Ozone Gas Released Into The Air Harmful?
No. Ozone is classified as an irritating gas only in high concentrations. The EPA has established strict guidelines limiting .1 parts per million in the air for eight hours of continuous exposure. Only a small portion of the ozone in the treated water is released momentarily into the air. If all the ozone in one gallon of water were released into one cubic foot of air, the level would amount to 0.03 parts per million and it would revert to oxygen within a few minutes. In actual usage, the amount of ozone released is much smaller. The small amount released can actually serve as a slight room deodorizer, helping minimize cooking smells and sink odor from garbage disposals.
What Is The Recommended Method For Using VeriPure For Bottled Water?Select a container that is food grade quality, such as glass or stainless steel. Never use a container that has contained toxic substances, such as cleaning agents, gasoline, pesticides, etc. Rinse the bottle with VeriPure water at least twice to minimize contamination. Fill the bottle to within one to two inches of the top and place the cap on it.
How Is VeriPure Used For Sanitizing Surfaces?
The VeriPure unit is designed as a sanitizing rinse. Rinse or place items under the cold water ozone rinse from the VeriPure for a minimum of 30 to 60 seconds. It is important that the VeriPure water flow over every part of exposed surfaces to ensure that bacteria is diminished.
How is the VeriPure Registered and Verified?
The VeriPure unit is registered with the EPA as a device. The VeriPure unit is NSF certified for water filtration under 42 and 53 which is the indepent testing that provides the verification of the filtration claims.
How Is VeriPure Used For Sanitizing Foods?
The best method for sanitizing foods is to place items in a bowl or colander and flood with VeriPure water for one to two minutes. It is recommended that the items be rubbed with the hands to ensure that all crevices are contacted thoroughly. It is very important to make certain that all dirt is removed since dirt can act as a barrier under which bacteria can hide.
Can VeriPure Ozonated Water Be Used On Plants?
Definitely. Ozonated water is being used commercially to enhance plant growth on potatoes and other vegetables. Though it is not completely understood why ozonated water exerts such a powerful stimulation to plant growth, one theory is that the super oxygenation of the plant roots increases the nitrogen uptake of the plant. Another theory is that the ozone eliminates pest microbes around the root system, so the plant does not have to expend energy fighting them and turns that energy into fuller growth.
