How to Make Ozonated Water (for Drinking)?
Ozonated water is one of the most popular ways to use ozone in a therapeutic way. It is easy to produce, low risk, and can have profound medicinal value.
Ozonated water is made by running ozone gas through water. Special ozone resistant stones produce tiny bubbles which allow the gas to be suspended in water temporarily.
For the best quality of ozonated water, it’s recommended to use an ozone generator which runs on pure oxygen as the feed gas (instead of air).
What equipment do you need for making ozone water?
You need the following equipment to be able to make ozonated water of high quality:
- Oxygen source with a low flow regulator
- Ozone generator
- Accessories: silicone tubing, luer lock connectors, water bubbler, trap
- Breathing protection: a destructor attached to the water bubbler
Scroll down to find a list with the equipment I used on this page.
|Ozone concentration:||80 to 120 mcg/ml|
|Oxygen flow:||1/8 LPM|
|Duration:||minimum 10 min (depends on the amount of water)|
80 to 120 mcg/ml
minimum 10 min (depends on the amount of water)
Learn how to protect yourself from breathing ozone
1. Take a around 3 feet [1m] long silicone [or PVC] tubing and push it over the inlet of the regulator
2. Screw the regulator onto the tank.
3. Take the other end of the tubing and push a male luer lock connector into it.
4. Screw the luer lock connector into the “oxyge in” port of the ozone generator.
5. Plug the ozone generator into the power supply.
6. Take another, smaller piece of silicone tubing [12 inch or 30 cm] and push one male luer lock into one end.

7. Connect the luer end with the “ozone out” port on the ozone generator.
8. Push the other end of the silicone tubing over the luer lock connector of the trap (the inlet which is connected with the stem).
9. Take another smaller silicone tubing [12 inch / 30 cm] and push one end over the outlet of the trap …
10. … and the other end over the inlet of the water bubbler.
11. Pour water into the water bubbler. Make sure that the stone is submerged in water.
12. Put the lid back onto the water bubbler: make sure it's tight.
13. Open the valve of the tank: half a turn is enough. Watch the gauge jump up: it shows you whether there is gas inside.
14. Select the desired ozone concentration on the ozone chart. Here: 1/8 LPM at maximum ozone, so 75 mcg/ml.
15. Set the regulator to 1/8 LPM.
16. Check to see if there are bubbles coming out in the water bubbler. If there are, then everything is connected correctly.

17. Turn on the ozone generator by setting both dials to 5.
18. Ozonate the water for at least 10 minutes.
19. After 10 minutes, turn the ozone generator off.
20. Close the valve on the oxygen tank.
21. Open the regulator all the way up to release the pressure faster. Set it to 2 LPM.

22. When the gauge has gone down all the way to zero, close the regulator by setting it to OFF / 0.
23. Unhook the tubing from the “ozone out” port to prevent water from flowing back.
24. Pour the water into a glass.
25. Start drinking it: first, keep the water away from you and take a deep breath, then start drinking it while holding your breath the whole time.
What type of water is the best to ozonate?
The best type of water to ozonate is cold, distilled or reverse osmosis filtered water. The less minerals, the colder, and the more acidic water is, the more ozone it can hold for a longer time.
Tip: Put a few ice cubes into the water bubbler, or to make a mix out of 50/50 refrigerated and room temperature water.
Can you store ozonated water?
Yes, you can store ozonated water in the fridge for several days. For best effect though, it's recommended to drink freshly ozonated water since it's holds the most ozone charge.
Recommended equipment for making ozonated water
This is the equipment I used in the pictures above:
1. Oxygen source: an industrial oxygen tank (either an empty tank from Promolife, or a full industrial tank from amazon), with an industrial low-flow regulator.
2. Ozone generator: Promolife O3Elite Dual Cell ozone generator
3. Accessories: a trap, ca. 5 feet of silicone tubing, luer lock connectors, 1,000 ml water bubbler with a built-in destructor (the 500 ml bubbler I use in the pictures above is not available anymore)

I have a Berkey gravity fed water filter for ALL of the water I consume. But I'd like to make it more acidic so it holds the ozone longer. Which salt do you recommend to make the water more acidic? I also drink a lot of fresh lemonade so I always have lemons on hand. If I used some fresh lemon juice, will a couple drops of stevia affect the ozonated water?
I bought your book on ozone, and didn't see a recommendation.
from my quick research the way to reduce the pH of water is to
– add sea salt (but will increase the mineral content of the water and so reduce the ability of the water to hold ozone, so I wouldn't recommend it)
– add CO2 (this may also have two effects of both reducing the pH but also adding another molecule to the equation with which the ozone will react, so not sure this would work)
– add hydrogen (this may be the best method, but it would be a matter of testing it out)
In general, I think the best is to use either distilled or reverse osmosis filtered water, they may not be acidic but hold a good amount of ozone.
I would definitely not use any lemon juice or stevia to ozonated water, this will mostly neutralize the ozone.
I hope this helps.
This may be a stupid question but what is the mg/h required in order to treat chronic diseases? Can the Ozone generator products found in Amazon work for this? If so can you recommend any specific one? And how many cups of this ozonated water would be needed daily. Thank you so much for your help as I know this is a loaded question but need some direction from a professional. Appreciate all your help on this.
It depends on what chronic illness you are treating and how you will respond.
I think air-fed ozone generators that produce around 600 mg/h in ozone output are adequate for ozone water.
Type in “ozone generator water” into the amazon search, and whatever pops up in the 600 mg/h to 1000 mg/h range should work. The Aqua-6 or Airthereal should do it …
FYI: those machines typically burn out within a few months though …
Hi Paola. Thank you for all the wonderful information. Question: How empty should your stomach be for 03 water? And how long after taking vitamin C? Thank you.
wait at least 3 hours after you drank ozonated water before you eat something.
After taking vitamin C (as an oral supplement), I would wait at least one hour. If you take the vit C in intravenous form, I would give it 2 or 3 hours.
I am new to ozone, sorry if this is a dumb question. I'm curious as to why we'd want to leave a room from possible damage to the lungs while ozone generator is active but we're okay to drink it? And it seems that from what I've seen online, when making water from cheap ozone generators people don't leave the room. Wanting your take on this?
Thank you for all the content so far, it's been exhilarating to learn!
It is safe to ingest or expose the insides of your body (blood, vagine, rectum, ears, nose, stomach and intestines, and more) to ozone, except the lungs.
Lungs can be damaged by ozone, that's why you should avoid breathing it in.
When you drink ozonated water, you should also hold your breath for that very reason.
I can't comment on other people without specific examples, but they may have the window open or they have become less sensitive to the ozone smell, which happens sometimes. Also some lung exposure to ozone may not be outright damaging but just irritating to a point that it does not cause immediate problems for the user.
I bought this one on Amazon. It says it does 500 mg/hr. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07K3ZCCFV
let me know if you have any questions.
I have an elderly friend who would like to try ozone water for digestive reasons. She lives about 30 mins from me. I thought I read somewhere that you can preserve ozone water by freezing it. I was going to make her a week's worth in individual glass bottles that could be frozen and thawed in the fridge for use. Would that work?
Also, I notice that you recommend starting at about 80ug/ml, why so high?
with ozone water you can use rather high ozone concentrations, since water only retains around 1/4 of it.
Yes, you can preserve ozone water that way, but some ozone will get lost.
If there is still ozone in the water, you can smell it. No smell, no ozone. You can use that to test the water for ozone content.
Hi Paola, we have a JED 203 ozone generator that we use for our chest freezer for cold plunge therapy. I am thinking I can use this for making drinkable ozonated water. But, in reading your site, you're using an ozone output chart setting for the water. Do you know if what we have is suitable or too strong?
according to this page: https://www.jedengineering.com/products/jed_203 your machine puts out 0.1 grams of ozone per hour, which is 100 mg per hour. This is a very low output. In addition, this thing runs on air, not on pure oxygen. So, yes you can use it to prepare ozone water, but it will be very lightly ozonated.
You can buy air-fed ozone generators on amazon which put out six times more ozone for less than $100, like this thing: https://www.amazon.com/A2Z-Ozone-Aqua-6-Multi-Purpose-Generator/dp/B00K70QDJA/ref=sr_1_3?crid=3NPV98NRWAUBH&keywords=a+to+z+ozone+generator&qid=1665786585&refresh=1&sprefix=a+to+z+ozone+generato%2Caps%2C186&sr=8-3&ufe=app_do%3Aamzn1.fos.006c50ae-5d4c-4777-9bc0-4513d670b6bc
Awesome! Thanks so much for your help.
Ozone water does have a bactericidal effect, but it is not recommended for personal production and use, because it can be done for the following reasons
1. The solubility of ozone in water is relatively low. One atmospheric pressure, one cubic meter of water at standard zero can only dissolve 1 gram of ozone, and this is far from reaching.
2. The detection of ozone concentration in water is a big problem, and the cost is quite high. At present, only PC and ProMinent can do it, and a detector costs $3,000.
3. The mixing of ozone in water usually needs to be pressurized. It is completed by pump and jet circulation, which is difficult in industry and cannot be completed by individuals.
I love it when people cite reasons why something won't work and try to convince people who have been making it work for years already.
Do you think the Promolife Mini o3 generator can handle making ozonated water? If so what setting would you use? (I have not bought one yet but I was thinking of that one since it is the most affordable). And how different would be the result be from a Mini, the single and the dual generator (of Promolife) for instance. Would it be possible to reach comparable results somehow or would it definitely be not as efficient for the less powerful generators. Thank you!
it's not ideal, but sure you can use it for water. It just won't be as potent as with a different machine, but will likely still be beneficial.
I would set it to 1/8 LPM.
The single and dual would definitely make a stronger charge, but the Mini may be alright for your needs.
Yes, I believe you could reach comparable results with the Mini, but it's possible you may have to repeat the process more times than with the other machines, but maybe not to a significant degree.
Thanks for this website and your FB group Paola <3
Very helpful and your guidance in the group has helped me out a lot several times. Hugs from Denmark
Thank you so much, Michelle!
I have the single 03 Promolife Generator. At 1/8 LPM, the highest mcg/ml is 52. Should I do 1/32 LPM, so I can get up to 70 and let it ozonate for longer?
it depends how much water you're ozonating.
1/32 is an extremely low flow, so if you're ozonating larger amounts of water, it may take much longer to achieve full saturation. So, in such a case, higher flows are better.
Thank you for all that you provide to those of us seeking optimal health.
I found this on Amazon
And I am trying to piece everything together, the oxygen tanks are an important part of the process because it insures the most effective treatments?
Because this unit doesn't claim to require a tank; but I am thinking in theory could I not ozonate water with this and then do a rectal enema with the water… Or plug up an insufflator ear scope to this for similar results?
Guess I just don't understand why ozonators that aren't meant to be used in combination with oxygen tanks even exist… It's a little confusing.
Now that I am writing this I believe I am starting to understand.
The amazon unit is taking the air around me, which isn't 99% oxygen like what is in the tank, and therefore the effectiveness of the O3 coming out the other end will be lesser. Do I have that right?
Hope you've gotten over the bad fish,
Hi Paola. Just watched your youtube video ‘My Awesome Ozonated Water Story'. WOW, simply astonishing. That video is complete copy of what I have been going on for the past year and a half. I am speechless. I had food poisoning in 7/2019. Immediately stomach ballooned like I was pregnant 8 months. That lasted for 2-3 months when out of blue severe sharp pain started exactly in the area you were describing. Upper right liver area, under rib cage. I was thinking same as you: liver issue, gall bladder stones, ulcer, you name it. Went to GI doctor, he did ultrasound, blood work and …nothing. Actually, stool test noted h-pylori but no stones, no stool blood, liver is good, no stomach inflammation, blood work good. IS it an ulcer? I never wanted to do endoscopy with that camera going through my esophagus. Mystery. But pain persisted. Uncomfortable pain, nausea. When I eat something is hurts. I started all sorts of treatments for hpylori as I did not know for ozone. The pain has improved somewhat after few months but it is always there just change intensity. Under ribcage, causing nausea and fulness, weird feeling in stomach. Then I did gut GI Map stool test. Those results proved severe dysbiosis. I am missing good bacteria and have overgrowth of bad – klebsiella pneumonia. This gut issues are just keep progressing. In the past few months I developed all of these joint pains, tendons cracking, joints making weird noises, I can tell that tissue is being slowly destroyed. But I was out of my mind. I do not know what else can I eat. Lost 25 pounds.
And now …this video, are you an angel that answered my prayers? Wow, I am going to try making the ozone water. It looks so complicated. I hope I can get this equipment here in USA. Thank you sooo much for the video.
Have your joint pains resolved after you started drinking the water? Do you still have that stomach pain? How often and should I drink the water and how much? Can tendons/ligaments regenerate?
THANK YOU !!!! YOU ROCK.
I am glad that you found my information informative.
Unfortunately, after I made that video, it seems that I have yet again contracted some food poisoning. I think it was from a bad piece of salmon … It may be h pylori this time … and ozonated water is helping again. It's a work in progress.
My joint pains resolved years ago when I switched to paleo diet, and then 3 years ago I had another flare up due to high oxalate foods (carrots, celeriac, beets) which resolved within a few days after going carnivore.
I believe that tendons and ligaments can regenerate, yes.
I would drink the water every day on an empty stomach, and a lot – until symptoms go away. This can take a few weeks. Anything between 2 to 4 big glasses. Or more if you can. Make sure you supplement with vitamin C or citrus fruits in that time.
Thanks for your reply. I am really sorry to hear you suffer food poisoning again. Hope you fix it again fast. Keep us posted. Have your connective tissue problems resolved? Did you have blood marker high e.g RF or CRP etc.
Have you ever did gut microbiome test. I did one few months back GI MAP 360. On scale 1-5 i was 5. Total mess and all that with 2 doses antibiotics, nuked my gut.
I am aso considering fecal transplant in Taymount clinic, London. I heard good stories on people recovering their gut.
Hello I was wondering if taking probiotics is required after drinking ozone water? I have tried taking it for the duration of the treatment with ozonated water but it seems to stir up my Candida. I am afraid of depleting good flora along with killing off the bad guys.
Have you seen problems with your digestion since drinking ozonated water?
Hi Paola, nothing too jarring but the only thing that is noticeable is that it may make my stomach area feel a little irritated and uneasy. But I always thought I would have die-off symptoms like diarrhea but not a peep. Now my tongue is a totally different story. I'm not sure if it is making my tongue whiter or better. I know my tongue gets worse when I add probiotics. Now that I think about it, ozone could have improved the thick layer but each time I add probiotics it causes it to flare and then I can't discern what is causing what. But I feared disturbing my microbiome, which is why I was afraid to discontinue the probiotics. I was in major benzo withdrawals for years which completely destroyed my health, followed by high birth control pills to stop a year long bleed. That BCP treatment damaged my body in ways that I can't even speak of and I regretted taking it. Prior to all this, I was given antibiotics for Lyme disease that also deteriorated my health mentally and physically. It's safe to say my gut is completely destroyed and the Candida that ravaged my body was like none other. Ozone is my way of healing my body and ridding Lyme and other infections. So while I need to rid my gut of Candida and who knows what else, I was afraid that I may be low in good probiotics also. No evidence I am low, but there is that concern.
if there are no obvious digestive disturbance besides the irritation and uneasiness, then I don't think this warrants some special intervention ….
But: the irritation/uneasiness could be due to ozone killing something off in the stomach or upper small intestinal area. There should be no bacteria there to begin with, so maybe ozone is “cleaning up shop” and that irritation is the die-off symptom …
The way to find out if it's an ozone induced die-off reaction, may sound a bit crazy, but it's: to drink more ozonated water and see if the irritation/uneasiness diminishes or goes away.
The idea here is that IF the irritation is because of dying microorganisms from ozone, then more ozone will clear out the debris from the dead microorganisms which caused the irritation. Not sure I'm explaining this well. But it's a matter of trying it out.
I'm curious about one thing: Did ozone help you with the benzo withdrawal? Or were you done with that when you started doing ozone?
I made an error in the name.
The correct name is Doug Kaufmann, and it is not Don Kaufmann.
I wonder if you are familiar with the healing claims of Don Kaufmann, about how the real cause of many of today's major illnesses ( cancer, heart, etc, etc ) is actually due to fungus in the body, that is hidden from easy observation ? As ozone therapy also kills fungus, I thought that you might like to look at it. His website is https://knowthecause.com, he is on YouTube, and his books Fungus Link may be in your library. There are a number of doctors who are in agreement with his fungus theories.
Yes, I know of those theories. It's possible there is something to it.
can I put a couple of drops of ozone oil in water and drink?
yes, if you can stand the taste, you can.
