Finally Caught Up!

Finally Caught Up!

Tomorrow we’ll get the last of the air ozone generator backorders out and start working on some stray phone orders that never got processed. I worked until 11 PM all last week and even this weekend to accomplish this feat. Let me explain why it was so difficult.

We do local ozone fumigation (pest control, to sanitize surfaces of viruses, etc) and since we ran out of our 10g solid-state ozone transformers, we went back to using our 3.5g, 5g, and 7g ozone plates. We have an ozone meter that works with a cell phone app to tell us the parts per million of ozone (we decided to sell this unit, ordered 10 that will be here soon. $500 for the standard model and $600 for the one with the cell phone app -wifi feature – a must-have for contractors!) and we noticed that the lower-powered units we were utilizing were achieving a higher part per million of ozone concentration faster than the 10g plates. We figured out the reason why. Placing several lower powered units around a residence does a better job than one or two high powered units. So we decided to discontinue selling 10g transformers (we will still stock the 10g ozone plates, however). We will now recommend 14g max per fan (two 7g transformers-plates) spread around your residence or office.

The seven-gram transformer and plate is our new ‘go-to’ product for ozone shock treatments. We can fit two of these transformers on a 9 or 12-inch metal fan pivoting fan that throws the ozone straight up towards the roof. We also designed several new commercial ozone generators we will unveil soon. They are encased and come with the ozone plate attached.

We are still waiting for out 5g ozone transformers and tubes. We should be getting them within the coming 2 weeks, God willing. These are some crazy times. God help us all!

Product – Order Update

Product – Order Update

We’re a two-person operation. Me and my son. That changes next month as I will join forces to expand the business and grow our product line but for now, that’s all we’ve got.

I’m spending 5 hours a day answering the phone and haven’t had time to answer emails lately. That’s a first. I’ll get caught up on emails this weekend. We’re struggling to fill backorders and create new product offerings at the same time. If you do have a backorder, can you please wait until next week please to inquire? We will be getting product out all this week and should be caught up by next week.

As for product update, we’re still out of the 5g ozone machine. We’ve ordered the parts over a month ago but the factory didn’t send it in this last batch. Reason? Fedex increased the shipping price from $8 a kilo to $40 a kilo, and they simply deducted product since I pre-paid shipping a month ago (rather than ask me for more money) That’s how they roll over there. I’m so blessed I don’t rely on them but for a few electronic parts. It’s hard to run a business like not knowing if what you order is what you’ll get.

Also, we’re re-designing our units to create more ozone. This downtime has allowed us to do a lot of R&D and testing. We have an ozone meter (we’ll soon start to sell it for $500 to contractors, others sell the same meter for $600) that allows us to see the parts per million we get when we perform ozone shock treatments in our area, mostly for AirBnB’s and a few Apt complexes. We’ve found we can create higher concentrations of ozone spreading machines about and using 5g instead of 10g ozone plates. They run a lot cooler than the 10g transformers and plates, so that’s what we’re going to offer in the future. Two 5g ozone machines spread 15-20 feet apart create a higher ozone concentration than one 10g unit. So a 30-50g machine for instance will create the same concentration as two 5g units spread 20 feet apart. We were shocked at the finding, didn’t expect that. So we’re going to change our product offering soon to something that will cost less and produce better results. And best of all, our ozone transformers have a lifetime warranty and removable ozone plates! The Chinese made machines are disposable and crap out within a year due to the way they’re engineered and designed. The thin strips of copper in the electronic timers, on off switch rust from the close, high ozone output, within a year, and that causes the unit to fail. Shipping it back for repair will cost you more than one of our machines. That’s why we say, eventually all ozone users will become Forever Ozone customers, lol. Just give it some time! Once you go through our competition repair process, you’ll see the light!

We thank you for your patience during this time. We’re excited for the upgrades we’ve made to our product offerings and will update our website this weekend. If you have a backorder, it’s coming (except for the 5g water machines, they”re a few weeks out still) Please wait until next week, or this weekend, to call. God Bless, and stay fearless!

Getting Supplies Today!

Getting Supplies Today!

Finally. Thanks for your patience. We should be able to get all backorders out by Thursday so that you get your item by the end of this week via USPS Priority-mail.

Looking forward, we have developed new machines during this down time that we will unveil tomorrow. Machines that do not require any assembly and stay cooler, create higher ozone concentrations. Check back soon for more information.

We’ll be able to get most backorders to you by the end of this week. By Wednesday, we’ll have some new unit offerings. Thanks again for the patience! Mike

Using Ozone to Treat or Cure Covid-19.

Using Ozone to Treat or Cure Covid-19.

I got a warning letter from the FTC this morning because one of my blog posts suggesting ozone therapy seems to hold great promise in the treatment of Covid-19. Also, it has been shown to kill the SARS coronavirus (similar to Covid-19). The lawyer’s warning letter said the things I blogged about (Blog post has been deleted) were unsubstantiated and not backed up by any medical studies and thus, was in violation of the FTC Act 15 U.S.C – 41. That law makes it a Federal Offense to advertise that a product can cure or treat a disease without FDA approved clinical studies, etc. The letter also suggested I make sure I am not making any claims on our website that ozone can treat or cure anything. I was given 48 hours to fix the situation.

I got some good counsel today, and boy did I get an earful! I was advised to put the disclaimer you now see on the bottom of most of our website and strongly advised against ever making any ‘cure or treatment” claims again. (Even though I don’t feel I did, and I certainly didn’t mean to do so.)

I got into ozone because I believe in ozone and what it can do, and to save people money! I can sleep well at night knowing the products we sell are loved by our customers. I love hearing the positive testimonials and feeling their ‘ozone love’. I feel I get ‘good karma’ selling the ozone products we invented and sell. I’m also happy that we take good care of our customers and make sure they use our ozone products correctly.

I do understand why our Federal authorities are cracking down on anyone who claims to have a ‘cure’ for Covid-19. That was not and is not my assertion, to be clear! Ozone has been approved by our government for use in a variety of industries, such as water treatment, food processing, smoke and mold remediation, and several other applications, but it has not been approved for treating any disease, at least not in the USA. So, to comply with the law, and that is my intention (in order to stay in business), I put a disclaimer on the bottom of most all of our website pages. (UPDATE: The FTC lawyer said we are now in compliance, no problems here, and thanks for said compliance moving forward.)

The EPA has not approved any ozone generator or UV machine to kill Covid-19. Why not, if both have been shown to kill viruses? Yes, but that does not mean the EPA is in the business of approving UV or ozone to kill anything or cure anything! I don’t want to speak for the EPA. Read why yourself here. I quote: “These are examples of pesticidal devices. A pesticidal device is an instrument or other machine that is used to destroy, repel, trap or mitigate any pests, including bacteria and viruses. Unlike chemical pesticides, EPA does not routinely review the safety or efficacy of pesticidal devices, and therefore cannot confirm whether, or under what circumstances, such products might be effective against the spread of COVID-19. Accordingly, List N only includes surface disinfectants registered by EPA and does not include devices.”

Forever Ozone does not claim that our water ozonators can cure or treat Covid-19, or that our air ozone generators can kill the Covid-19 virus (or any virus) on surfaces. I don’t expect any such studies to be performed in the USA either that would prove otherwise. It’s very expensive and the headwinds from certain industries and lobbies would not make that a prudent endeavor in my opinion.

So to recap, Forever Ozone is on a mission to educate customers on the best way to use ozone safely, act as a contractor in the eyes of the law to utilize ozone in the ways that are approved by our government. We’ll will continue to focus on taking good care of our customers and providing the best products at the lowest prices possible to our beloved customers. A big “thank you” to our 30,000 past customers for your continued support!

Disclaimer: In the USA, the FDA has not approved ozone for medical use. If you have any questions about using ozone, please talk to your doctor or health professional. Ozone is not for breathing! Breathing high concentrations of ozone can harm your lungs (see EPA warning on ozone air purifiers) We do not sell ozone air purifiers. We only sell commercial ozone generators for use by Contractors (or homeowners acting as contractors) to ‘shock’ the air in unoccupied areas ONLY! Please use as directed for air shock treatments, and only if you feel you can competently follow instructions.

Updated Product Status

Updated Product Status

The factory that makes our parts did their job. They handed our products off to the shipping company (in this case, Fedex) on April 15th. ETA was April 24th since the supply chain is backed up right now. I’ve noticed for the past few days that our products are being held up “on hold” so I called today to find what’s going on. I was told that there are not enough FedEx planes in the supply chain pipeline (FedEx piggybacks off commercial flights to move product from overseas) that things are backed up. The queue is usually a day or so but right now it’s 2-3 weeks, which is unbelievable to me. What used to take 3-4 days tops is now taking 2-4 weeks!

This dynamic ‘is what it is.’ I’m very frustrated but there is nothing I can do, and I pray our customers will likewise bear with us during this difficult time. The good news is that odds are we get our parts next week, from what I’m being told, and that we’ll have enough supplies to last about a month.

This downtime has given us time to experiment with new designs and come up with a few new innovations that create higher ozone concentrations. We’ll share that research and those products next week when we get our products. in stock. Because of this wait, not only will you have received free ozone machines (that is still in effect until the day before we get our shipment next week, whenever that is), but you will also get a machine that creates higher ozone concentrations once you do finally get your machine! That’s the silver lining in all of this I guess.

Looking forward, I do feel that the powers that be and the dynamic in play are going to make it harder to obtain ozone generators in the future. Not just from us, but from any source. What I am watching unfurl is a slow-motion economic train wreck that makes little sense to me. Having ozone in your corner will allow you to overcome many of the health challenges that we as a people, we as a Nation will be facing here on out. Ozone truly is a “God” particle that kills the ‘bad guys’ that can rob us of our health, and I am proud to offer a USA designed product that can stand the test of time to our customers.

Thanks again for your patience. Remember to always ‘mind your soul,” God Bless and take care. Mike

Ozone Generators Compared

Ozone Generators Compared

I spoke with a nice gentleman today, the owner of an ozone business in St Thomas Virgin Islands. He was telling me of his frustration with his Chinese transformer ozone generator bought from a guy he called “Charles.” He said his ozone ‘cannon’ arrived with 2 out of 5 defective transformers. He immediately called Charles, expecting him to make things right. Instead, he was told that his machine was tested to work before it left the ‘factory’ so he was shit out of luck. It was the carriers’ fault, call and bother them. He bought one of my 50K machines and I offered to throw in two free Chinese transformers at cost ($16), the kind in his unit. The kind with the ‘hot’ high voltage red wires that are glued to the ozone plate, making them effectively disposable. I have 20 of those I bought to test. All of the tested samples caught on fire if the fan quit blowing. All failed within a month if used over 12 hours a day. (Terrible invention – a knock off of my transformer my invention)

Those ‘hot’ high voltage red wires on the Chinese ‘double stacked” transformers, if those wires come undone (with high heat) can touch the side of the box. That poses a shock and fire hazard. Most of the cheap ozone generators sold on Amazon feature these disposable transformers. (buyers, beware). Out transformer has a lifetime warranty and was designed to last 10 or more years, even with daily use. (If connected to a fan and run in the manner we recommend, on 30 off 30 for as long as you want.) A 15-30 minute shock treatment is all you need to kill mold, viruses, bacteria, mites, etc at the concentrations our ozone generators create.

Forever Ozone has been in business for over 10 years, and we’re not in this to make money. Real Estate, other investments are how I make money. I got into this business for health and safety reasons. I knew that we live in ‘end times’ and wars, (burning plastic) civil unrest, pandemics (manmade or otherwise) were coming. I knew that owing ozone would represent the blood above the doorway to ward off the angel of death. I know our gov is part of a world order that has a depopulation agenda. I’m not happy about this. (Wrote a book about it in case you’re interested in this type of thing. If you want a signed copy, just let me know. I sell the hard copies for $10 to my customers and friends.) But I created our ozone generators to last, and to be highly effective. If your ozone transformer ever craps out, we’ll replace it for free, gladly! We want you to have ozone! Ozone kills the ‘bad guys” that can kill us. If you choose Forever Ozone, you are supporting a USA company that cares about your health. If you buy products with poorly designed cheap Chinese transformers? Good luck.

New Website Format: Please leave reviews – ask questions.

New Website Format: Please leave reviews – ask questions.

This new Forever Ozone website format lends itself for much better customer participation. We feel this is the best way for our company to preach the virtues of ozone moving forward. By giving our customers a platform to share their experiences with our ozone generators with the general public, we feel we can continue to reach more people without having to spend money on expensive advertising campaigns. After all, paid ads aren’t exactly known for their objective impartiality, lol.

So if you own one of our machines, Won’t you join us in this new venture and create a new account so that you can post reviews and join our community? We’d really appreciate it.

We have over 25,000 past customers over the past 9 years. People move, change phone numbers, emails address, etc so we don’t store that type of info. We don’t spam our customers. All we retain is your name and order info from our end. When you call, we can look up your order but we don’t know where you live, your phone number or your email address. We don’t need or care about those things. If you order something, we’ll get that info so no need to store it. The reason why you want to create a new account is that you’ll be part of the WordPress family. You’ll be able to comment on millions of blogs worldwide. Most importantly, you’ll be able to help us better explain how ozone works for our future customers.

It really is us against the International Corporate world. We need to rally together and share information, and this new Forever Ozone website format will help us do just that!

Revamped Forever Ozone Website!

Revamped Forever Ozone Website!

If things look different, they are. In October of 2019, Forever Ozone changed its website platform from Shopify to WordPress. Why?  Many reasons.  Shopify was slow. Their platform caused us to lose valuable ranking in the search engines after the latest Google update. Shopify doesn’t support easy product reviews, something we really loved about our previous service and about our new one.  Basically, WordPress allows for a better customer interaction and better integration with social media, customer questions, reviews, and comments. All of the things we feel will help us connect better with our customers moving forward. 

We hope our customers take a few minutes to offer their input and experience using our ozone generators. We also hope you offer your advice on what you found works best to get rid of odors, kill mites or mold, etc. Forever Ozone is a team effort! Please help us help others, sharing is caring after all!

 

Info on how, why our transformers attach to a pivoting fan grill.

Forever ozone’s proprietary ozone transformers are made to attach to the front of a pivoting fan grill with the supplied zip ties. Some people also choose to attach them to plexiglass or wood via L brackets. However, they should not be placed on metal surfaces or carpet (for safety reasons) Let me explain.

First, why do we attach our transformers to pivoting fans vs using a 4.5″ computer fan like everyone else? A pivoting fan shoots the ozone straight us towards the roof can move much more air than a small 4.5″ computer fan. Obviously. Why is that important? Since ozone is heavier than air, blowing ozone towards the ceiling is advantageous as it forces air down to the ground level where it can be ozonated.

What’s the problem with placing our ozone transformers on carpet or on metal surfaces? Fire hazard. If it tips over, it can lead to disaster. Placing our transformer on top of a metal surface, for instance, a washing machine can also cause induction to heat up the metal surface if the side of the transformer comes in contact with the metal surface. This is due to the electromagnetic nature of the transformer. So basically, just attach it to a metal fan and if you must put it in ductwork or want to make a machine, mount it with L brackets to an acrylic plate first.

Which side of the ozone plate should face the fan?  If you run the fan on high, have it blow onto the backside of the plate. It will keep that side under 70 degrees and allow air to vortex around the ozone producing side of the ozone plate at a rate that will allow long enough interaction between the electrical spark and the air to create an optimal amount of ozone. Having the air “plane” around both sides (like a fin) will not cool either side properly and will rush by too fast to interact with the corona element. If you have the 9″ fan and run on low you can have the air blow onto the ozone producing side. On high, always best to cool the backside of the ozone plate.

Why Our Transformers are Best!

We invented our 10g transformers with a removable plate and plug-in power cord to solve several issues – problems with the Chinese designed transformers.

1) No red “hot” high voltage wires outside the transformer. If they touch or come loose, they become a fire and shock hazard. They also result in electricity loss vs having the wires internalized.
2) It’s hard to remove the ozone plates from the Chinese transformers.
3) It’s hard to re-wire the Chinese transformers.
The Chinese responded to our invention by creating a double-stacked transformer with non-removable ozone plates. It’s flawed, and it’s not safe. Here are the main problems:

1) They cement the red high voltage wires onto the ozone plates making them impossible to replace and a fire-shock hazard should they come loose.
2) The bottom of the transformer sits flush with the surface and builds up heat. If you run this for an hour or longer, it can burst into flames (gets very very hot) Our transformers feature a heat sink and face the fan. Stay super cool.
3) Air rushes past the ozone plates from the side from a weak 4″ fan. Bad design. Our units feature 9, 12, 20, or 24 metal fans that pivot to send the ozone towards the roof, a much better design.

The 4 columns are electrified with high voltage and can cause the plastic part to melt and even burst into flames if left unchecked.
I’ve had a couple of dozen people who tried these transformers and had a terrible experience call me to order our ozone generators. Several stated they caught on fire, one was even nice enough to send me a picture.
