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).
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.
