This residential duct hose accessory is easy to use and has worked great for us for years. The concept is simple. Remember that ozone generators need to breathe good oxygen in order to convert into ozone. The better the oxygen the better the ozone. For some applications like vehicles, small boats, closets, and confined spaces (under about 50sqft) I recommend leaving the machine outside the treatment area so it can breathe a good supply of air. Then use the hose to then direct the ozone into the treatment space. This prevents the machine from simply recycling its own ozone soon after it is produced. There are no tools required and it takes only seconds to attach. Just thread the hose into the extra end piece (included) then slide that end piece over the exisiting one on the outlet end of the machine. It holds in place by pressure alone. The hose is 8ft long which is more than enough to stretch into most spaces. In fact I actually recommend trying to keep the hose as short as possible in order to prevent any back-pressuring of ozone through the machine. If you are an auto detailer or used car dealership this accessory is the simplest way to improve results and prolong the life of the machine.
BENDS AND LOCKS INTO ANY ANGLE
POSITION TO REACH CONFINED SPACES
COMMERCIAL GRADE APPLICATIONS
Similar to the basic residential hose the main purpose of the flex hose is to allow the machine to remain in optimal oxygen conditions while forcing the ozone into the treatment space via the hose. However the flex hose is more rugged and gives you more options than the standard duct hose. The flex hose comes with a durable PVC end piece with a subtle funnel shape and 2.5" adapter. The flex hose also bends and locks into any position that you shape it into. Think of how a child's drinking straw bends at the end and makes that distinct popping sound as you play with it and you can imagine how the flex hose behaves (commercial grade). This allows you the ability to force ozone into hard to reach spaces by strategically shaping the flex hose into any angle necessary. For example if you need to target deep into duct work or behind and into walls this flex hose gives you more options than the basic residential hose. You can stretch the hose as long as about 8ft or restrict it to as little as about 18". Get this if you have hidden odors or mold-scent behind walls and you aren't able to rip them all out at once. With the flex hose you can cut a smaller hole into your wall then shape the hose to angle exactly where you want it deep into the wall. Remember, ozone does not pass through solid matter and it will only react with what it can reach. This flex hose gives you options no other machine on the market offers.
ALLOWS DIRECT OZONE CONTACT
TREAT UPHOLSTERY & APPAREL
COMPATABLE WITH SHOP-VAC FITTINGS
MUST USE RESPIRATOR & GOGGLES
Many of my customers (primarily auto detailers and upholstery & apparel cleaners) have been in need of a way to forcefully blast ozone directly into their desired target. For example, those who clean cars professionally can benefit greatly by being able to actually blow high concentrations of ozone directly into the seats, floor mats, headliners, trunks, and almost all other surface areas. Specialized apparel cleaning companies (including dry cleaners) can also benefit from being able to blast clothing & uniforms directly instead of just treating the room that they are in. The target hose is the solution. Included is a rugged 2.5" PVC end piece and nozzle. The hose is 2.5" diameter and about 3.5' long (we keep it relatively short to prevent back pressuring). At the end of the hose you can add any standard 2.5" Shop Vac accessory (included is the bristle brush type you see pictured) so that you can then forcefully treat any individual item, upholstery, or fabric. The only catch is that if you are going to be standing there manually treating items you'll need to use a respirator mask and goggles so that you yourself are not exposed to too much ozone during the application. And you may even want to add a shoulder strap to make it easier to keep the machine steady while you are doing work (see the accessories page to find both of these other items). This type of application is sophisticated and not recommended for most buyers. But if you are a professional cleaner looking for a new unique way to offer premier ozone treatment services this target hose gives you something worth charging customers to use. Contact me if you have questions before or after ordering. I recommend chatting to make sure you do this one right.
