Ozone generators are becoming more affordable and a common feature in larger commercial growrooms. For the biggest bang for your buck, look for a generator that also ozonates water. You can choose from built-in, wall-mountable, or portable units.
Ozone (O3) is a triatomic molecule consisting of three oxygen atoms, rather than the two in regular oxygen. Because ozone has a spare, unstable oxygen molecule, as soon as it touches a pathogen, the spare atom breaks off and attacks the cell walls of the pathogen.
Ozone can destroy high amounts of spores, bacteria, viruses, molds, fungi, mildews, smoke particles, and other contaminants, all while oxidizing any dead organic materials in its path.
Ozone generators must be used with extreme caution. High levels of ozone can be harmful not just for plants, but for humans and pets. By following the recommended safety guidelines, ozone becomes an effective tool serious growers should consider using to rid their sealed growroom of contaminants.
