Came a cross an ozone gas generator which claims to deodorize and sanitize places like restaurants and kitchens and can be used to sterilize water etc. Any idea if these claims work and how would you use one in a restaurant situation. It also claims to sanitize your swimming pool water without the use of chlorine etc. Anybody had any experience with one.
Thanks guys. I was sold on the promotion of these things as a cure all for food preparation etc. Looking to a move to the Philippines one day and the options of opening a buffet restaurant. Sanitation was my biggest worry as I am not sure of the hygiene levels of cooking staff etc over there. Saw this thing advertised in the Philippines and Goggled it and only found good reports until the read above.
Yep, that is the first priority in a restaurant. Nothing damages your reputation more than having people get sick from your food. Had a restaurant once for a while and worked in a major kitchen before that complete with all the training. I am just a little worried about the very casual attitude in the Philippines and I think I will send all my staff off to training for at least the basics and monitor hygiene carefully.
As another thought, this ozone gas thing, is it safe in water, because they claim you can use it to eliminate chlorine etc from swimming pools.
Yes it can be done, but it really isn't worth it. My Granddad used to be a swimming baths manager so I spent a lot of time in public swimming pools as a kid and I know that Ozone is used by quite a few. The main reason is that it avoids the use of chlorine which some people cannot tolerate and, if applied wrong, will make most people's eye's stream..
It is a job for experts though and not to be tampered with by the well meaning amateur.
