Oxidation is a process that is common to many water treatment technologies. Ozone is exceptionally effective as an oxidizer, which makes it a great choice for treatment of tough source waters. Some of ozone's uses are:
Disinfection, effective for chlorine resistant cryptosporidium
Breakdown of dissolved organics
Oxidation of metals e.g. iron and manganese
Oxidation of hydrogen sulfide
Color and tannin removal
Ozone is especially useful when used in conjunction with biological filtration, as the broken down organics provide important nutrients for filter health.
