Ozone Layer vs. Ozone Purification: How Ozone Protects Us

Ozone is a gas made out of three oxygen atoms that is naturally present in the atmosphere. Ozone that is located too close to the earth’s surface can actually be harmful to humans, animals and plants, notes The Ozone Hole, but the ozone layer that is located in the Earth’s stratosphere is extremely important to the well-being of our planet. It’s why there is so much concern about the ozone layer deterioration that has taken place during the last few decades. There could be detrimental consequences for all of the living things on the planet if we aren’t careful about protecting the ozone layer. But why is ozone so critical?

The ozone layer is important because it absorbs ultraviolet-B radiation from the sun and stops a majority of the rays from reaching the Earth’s surface. Ultraviolet-B radiation can cause everything from skin cancer to cataracts in humans and it can damage plantlike, ecosystems and even single-cell organisms. The ozone layer works as a shield for the planet, preventing much of this type of radiation from getting through to the Earth’s surface, and it also stops other contaminants from getting through, too. You may not be able to see the ozone layer, but it’s always there working to protect the people, animals and plants that inhabit the Earth.

Ozone water purification performed by Ozone Pure Water’s equipment works in a similar way. Our devices help eliminate iron, sulfur, manganese, chemical chlorine taste and other contaminants from your home or business water supply. Much like the ozone layer, it filters out everything that you don’t need in your water and helps to keep you, your family or your staff safe from unwanted and harmful pollutants in the water.

Ozone Pure Water has been in business for more than three decades and can provide you with the ozone equipment you need to keep your water fresh, clean and free of any potentially dangerous contaminations.
