Lenova has introduced the Aqualogic Ozone Faucet Line, a residential faucet that converts tap water into ozonated water to safely kill pathogens. The conventional hot/cold faucet features a small, thin ozone generator that produces liquid (or aqueous) ozone, a natural disinfectant with no chemicals or chemical residue. Aqueous ozone, which eliminates 99.9 percent of all common viruses and bacteria, is 100 times stronger than chlorine and can kill bacteria 3,100 times faster.

The broad-spectrum antimicrobial also kills mold, yeast and algae within seconds of contact. It is effective against all common food pathogens, including E. coli, Norovirus and Salmonella, and removes pesticides from fresh produce. Ozone water is also useful for protecting the home from germs, eliminating the need for conventional sanitizers on surfaces. The Aqualogic Ozone Faucet Line is available as a standard single hole or pull outside spout.
