How it works

Stabilised Aqueous Ozone (SAO™) offers a highly effective, safe and environmentally friendly cleaning solution, without the use of toxic chemicals! Here’s how it works…

How Stabilised Aqueous Ozone is created

Volts of electricity are injected into normal tap water. This splits the oxygen molecules in the water, transforming it from O2 into O3. It is whilst in this state that it is highly effective; clinging to dirt, grime, viruses and bacteria and killing 99.999% of all harmful contaminants. The solution will remain as O3 for a limited time before reverting back to normal tap water. This method of cleaning has undergone rigorous testing by laboratories and leading governing bodies across the world to prove that it is highly effective and safe.

Oxygen is converted into ozone then combined with the stabilised water to create Stabilised Aqueous Ozone.

Molecules in the cleaning solution are attracted to bacteria and dirt, destroying them upon contact.

The SAO™ cleaning solution then reverts safely back to water and oxygen.

What makes SAO™ a powerful cleaner?

What makes Stabilised Aqueous Ozone so powerful is its effectiveness when converted into O3. O3 is a naturally unstable compound, which means that it always tries to revert to its normal form. It is this unstable nature that makes it one of the most effective natural cleaning solutions. Its molecules latch on to surrounding dirt and bacteria, killing up to 99.999% of all harmful contaminants before turning back into normal water (O2). Deadly to germs, but safe for people and the planet!

Proven highly effective for over 100 years

Whilst Tersano products offer something revolutionary, Aqueous Ozone is not a new technology. In fact, it has been nature’s most powerful cleaner and sanitiser for over a hundred years. More than 1000 water plants are currently using it to naturally treat and purify water without chemicals. It has also been used in Olympic swimming pools as well as the military. Now, thanks to Tersano, it is also being used in commercial and residential settings all over the world. The Lotus® Pro and iClean Mini™ utilise the clever science behind Aqueous Ozone, creating Stabilised Aqueous Ozone, to provide a safe, eco-friendly and powerful cleaner and sanitiser.

Safe and harmless to people

Many people associate the word ‘ozone’ with harmful and dangerous gases. Stabilised Aqueous Ozone is different. It is 100% safe and harmless to people. It has been certified safe by leading governing bodies across the world, including the FDA and Health Canada. It has also earned EN13967 and EN1276 Certification as well as being HACCP and Green Seal certified.

How our products utilise Stabilised Aqueous Ozone

The revolutionary Lotus® Pro

The Tersano Lotus® Pro is fixed onto the wall and connected to your water supply, allowing water to flow through the unit’s stabilisation cartridge, filtering the minerals.

It is this process which enables the Aqueous Ozone to remain stabilised for longer. The water is then transported into the main part of the unit, where volts of electricity are added and the water is converted from O2 to O3. The Stabilised Aqueous Ozone (SAO™) solution can then be instantly dispensed into mop buckets, spray bottles or floor scrubbers, remaining in its form as an effective cleaner and sanitiser for 4 or 24 hours (depending on your cartridge type). Afterwards, you can pour it down sinks and drains safely and without causing any harm to the environment.

The portable iClean Mini™

The iClean Mini™ creates instant Stabilised Aqueous Ozone at the push of a button. Electricity is infused into the water, converting the O2 into O3, which is then dispensed directly onto your chosen surface.

Once the Stabilised Aqueous Ozone has been dispensed, it is able to lasts for 4 or 24 hours before reverting back to water, giving you plenty of time to clean.

Read all FAQs
How do I know if the machine is producing Stabilised Aqueous Ozone or just water?

The machine will shut down and give an error if Stabilised Aqueous Ozone is not being produced.

How do I check the efficacy of the aqueous ozone?

Stabilised Aqueous Ozone generated by our Lotus® Pro device has been tested by Third Party Laboratories as per Green Seal Standards GS37 and GS53.

The Stabilized Aqueous Ozone does not smell like regular cleaners...

Clean should not have a smell. The smell of lemon, fresh etc. in regular cleaning chemicals indicates the use of an additive to the chemical and these are harmful and can cause irritation.
