Quartz is a type of glass, and like glass, it shatters easily. For this reason, we’ve held off selling a “bare bones” model. But now that we’ve relocated to Arkansas, where our cost of operation is much cheaper than San Diego, we decided to offer it in the ozone resistant PVC case, with a lifetime warranty, for only $79.99. All you have to do is have a fan gently blow air into the enclosure, or put it on the back side of a 20″ box fan so that the ozone is sucked out of the unit and out the box fan. (better idea, unless you’re in a hot region, then blow the air into the unit.)
This new technology doesn’t run as hot as ozone plates, which burn at over 140 degrees during operation. Heat destroys ozone. It also poses a fire risk. Those are two of many reasons why we’ve decided to invest exclusively in this ozone technology moving forward. The other consideration is humidity. At 50% humidity, ozone plates ozone production is reduced by 50%. That’s not the case with tube technology! Ozone production is not reduced at all with humidity, This means you get much more ozone for your money in humid areas.
We also sell fans / power cords that fit into the back of these bare bones units, and different types of timers that you’ll need to perform ozone shock treatments as well.
