ECO-TEC brings you the amazing natural cleansing powers of ozone to
domestic water storage tanks. Electricity and air are the only raw
materials used to produce nature's own purifier that safely and
effectively destroys bacteria, coliforms, viruses, cysts, Legionnaire's
disease and other, unpleasant
tastes and odours. The ozonators are designed for easy installation.
Ozonation is a universally proven safe and natural method of cleaning your
1. Removes unpleasant tastes and odours
2. Destroys microbiological contaminants like Legionnaire's disease and
3. Chemical free
4. Freshens stale tank water, adds oxygen
5. Easily installed by owner
6. Very low power requirements and operating costs
FACTS ABOUT RAINWATER
Traditionally viewed as a safe source of domestic water,
rainwater/groundwater is exposed to many pollutants: insects, bird
droppings, smoke, dust and agricultural sprays, naturals seepage, etc.
Pollutants become concentrated in a rainwater tank, unlike a running
stream where they are diluted and flushed away. Faecal matters from birds
sitting on the roof produce coliforms and bacterial contamination that can
become a serious health problem.
Contamination often leads to unpleasant tastes and odours, and long
periods of high temperature and little rain can produce water that even
the long time "tank water drinker" can find unpleasant. Also, while those
frequently drinking the water can become accustomed to certain levels of
bacteria in the tank (our visitors don't however!), nobody gets used to an
unpleasant taste or smell.
Fortunately, all of the contaminants that affect rainwater/groundwater
tanks can be successfully treated with ozone and water kept fresh and
sweet all year around.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The heart of the unit is the ozonator that produces ozone from the oxygen
in the air.
Depending on your existing installation, ECO-TEC can offer a
cost-effective solution as follows:
• With the aid of an air pump, the ozone is delivered through a hose to
the diffuser. The diffuser, located in the bottom of the tank, ozonates
the water by creating very fine ozone-rich bubbles. During this process
the ozone is dissolved in the water to commence the sanitation and
• More efficiently, a circulating pump with Venturi injector is submersed
in the tank and ozonates the water. The ECO-TEC ozonator is designed to
maintain the water in a pure and healthy state. If your tank has not had a
good clean out for a couple of years or more, it’s a good idea to have it
properly cleaned first. This will ensure the ozonator is able to get the
water in top condition much quicker.
The ozonator can usually be installed in minutes. The preferred location
is in a sheltered dry place close to the tank and a suitable power outlet.
The ozonator is attached to the wall. The diffuser or submersible pump and
Venturi are lowered into the tank manhole and the hose connected to the
ozonator. Lastly the mains power is connected and the unit is switched on…
Then enjoy safe, great tasting,
