“Current EPA regulations for reduction of trihalomethanes pushes small community systems toward ozone technology.”
John Ireland, Chemist, US EPA, Department of Drinking Water

Ozone has been used for more than 100 years to purify water by oxidizing minerals such as iron, manganese and hydrogen sulfide and destroying bacteria, virus and cysts. It is more than 3,000 times faster than chlorine and is the most powerful microbiocide commonly available for water treatment. It is used for treating potable water, well water, industrial and commercial process water, wastewater, cooling tanks and holding tanks. Ozone’s primary treatment utility includes elimination of microbiological, mineral and chemical contamination as well as taste and odor.

Since the early 1900′s, ozone has been the primary disinfectant in European municipal water treatment. As in the US, much of the supply of city water in Europe is from surface sources. Because chlorine produces proven carcinogenic disinfection by-products called trihalomethanes (THM’s) when it reacts with organic substances common to surface water sources, ozone has been the treatment of choice in a rapidly growing number of US cities. Los Angeles, for example, installed the largest ozone water treatment plant in the world (600 million gallons per day) in the early ’90′s. Other large cities, including New York, and some 2,000 other US communities, utilize ozone for primary disinfection.

Support for Ozone by US EPA

The recent adoption of the Surface Treatment Rules by the United States Environmental Protection Agency places strict limits on disinfecting by-products (DPB’s), including THM’s. Because ozone products fewer DPB’s the EPA, along with the American Water Works Association, has emphasized the use of the ozone as a highly desirable water treatment alternative for small communities as well as large.

Cryptosporidium parvus, commonly called Crypto, a recently discovered microbe common in up to 86% of all municipal water sources, is eliminated only by either ozone or submicron filtration. It is completely impervious to chlorine. Crypto first was widely acknowledged as a public health threat when  municipal water in Milwaukee, Wisconsin was infected, resulting in a reported 100 + deaths.


Oxygen ……………………… Ozone
Ozone, is a pale blue tri-atomic form of oxygen. It is formed in nature by lightning and by the ultraviolet bombardment of oxygen molecules by sunlight.

Man-made ozone is formed by passing dry ambient air or oxygen through a high voltage field called a corona, which is produced inside an ozone generator. The high voltage breaks apart the oxygen (02) molecules and causes them to reform as Ozone (03), which is up to 13 times more soluble in water than oxygen.

When the ozone is dissolved in water, it’s unstable nature makes it highly reactive with oxidizable mineral, organic and microbiological contamination. Unlike chlorine, which merely deactivates bacteria after lengthy exposure time, ozone literally destroys bacteria on contact. The end product of ozone oxidation of organic matter is carbon dioxide and water. Ozone oxidizes mineral contaminants from a soluble form to an insoluble form, to permit final removal by filtration.

After ozone has done its job, it reverts back to pure oxygen, making it the most powerful non-chemical water treatment technology available.

Dear Hank,

We just wanted to let you know how happy we have been with our water softener and our Reverse Osmosis system that we bought from you. We have had them now for 17 years and have never had a problem with them. They are still working as well as the day they were installed. We are very happy that we chose BioTech and would recommend your product to anyone.

Purchased whole house softener and RO for kitchen. Everything was done professionally and on time and for less that competition charges. Hank is good man to deal with and we couldn’t be happier. Maybe I will sell him my Harley 🙂

First, I’d like to begin by stating that I knew nada about water softeners before I knew I needed one. In fact, I only decided to look into water softeners because the Sweetwater company, which had a sales concession at Home Depot, was giving away e-cards for free water testing. Well, after the water testing, I felt like I was on an episode of “Fear Factor” – I couldn’t believe I allowed hard water into my home. So began my journey to buy a water softener, which would be precluded by many interviews with many companies. They all sounded great….and eerily similar. However, there was something different about the owner of BioTech. I thought he was arrogant at first, when he asked me to interview him after all the others so I could “save the best for last.” Such a boastful comment meant I’d be a little tougher on this guy than I was with the other companies. I now have a complete home refinement unit that I definitely believe in and I feel great about. Selecting BioTech is looking to be the best decision I’ve made since purchasing my home. Thanks, Hank!

After considering several vendors of water softeners and reverse osmosis water conditioners we selected Hank and BioTech. Quality of product, warranty, cost and foremost, integrity of the owner made our decision easy. Promptness, professionalism, technical knowledge, long history and tidiness of the installers, made us comfortable that we had made the BEST choice. Buy BioTech, you can t get better!

We were very pleased with our experience. The owner is the one who comes to your home and he doesn’t try to do a hard sell. He just explains what he has to offer and can make comparisons with other systems out there. His technicians were very courteous and did the install during the “Stay at Home” and worked extra hard to invade our home as little as possible. We were appreciative. They even sprayed disinfectant to help aid with any risk. They left no mess which we appreciated.

Tim F.

I got quotes from 4 companies and went with Biotech. I am very impressed with the product, the professionalism, knowledge of the owner, and the long history. The installers were prompt and very neat. Everything was carefully explained and all my questions were answered. It was a great experience and I look forward to having this same company do the annual service. Highly Recommend them!
