Who is Aquazone? • Aquazone Systems – a natural, “green” ozone
system using no chemicals or electrolysis to sterilize products. A one time investment! Much more effective than chlorinated or tap fresh water washes. 1
• Alternative systems use costly chlorine or
electrolysis and salt, creating a form of hydrochlorous acid. Neither process is “green”.
