Great slogan & interesting product. Looks like you’re using ultrasound to fracture the bubbles? I say that just based on your very steep prices. What I do is put an airstone under a ($30) waterjet. The jet pulls in the air, the propeller atomizes it and it stays under the surface even after leaving the current. The mist isn’t as fine as yours… but I’m not quite sold on a price vs efficacy standpoint. Your lowest stone is $300 (for 20G). This is 33% O2 as opposed to 20% in air. So 13% more O2.

However, all your product should be doing is saturating the water faster. And what you’re claiming (“50% more”) no offense, sounds like a gimmick. I know science enough to know oxygen is not very soluble in water. It’s like 40mg/L at 25C. That’s a ridiculously LOW amount of 02. Whether you’re using an air stone, a jet, or your highly priced emitter… you can NOT drive O2 dissolution over it’s established curve at it’s respective temps unless you increase atmospheric pressure.

Even with the weight of water factored in there are still basic thresholds that can’t be passed.

So again, you’re device can’t add “50% more O2” in a DISSOLVED form. Can it aerate water to the point where the solution just stays saturated more consistently with more undissolved O2? Probably. But is your device resulting in more dissolved O2 then mine? No. Basic laws of chemistry say no.

If I’m wrong I’d love to hear what I missed.

One last thing. I’m no plant expert. But if the goal is to simply, efficiently & AFFORDABLY increase O2 levels all a person would need to do is add a small peroxide gravity drip feed. The peroxide will enter the water at low concentrations and slowly break down. Starting with nanobubbles that expand and keep the water saturated. So again, in terms of efficacy vs affordability… I don’t see the value. From an aesthetics standpoint it looks super cool. From a functional & scientific standpoint I don’t see how this can do anything close to what you claimed. If somehow I’m wrong and it magically can, it would be useful to actually show the O2 meter … especially if your goal is to sell these. You’re selling 50% more so please show what you’re selling.

Tell me, how your product can affect the ph of the water???

Interesting ! is this product available @ Malaysia ? +60175522128

Let me try and address some of the questions. These are not designed for aquariums. You will kill your fish. Fish only need 4 to 6 PPM. Bubblers can deliver that. This science is going to go above that by 50 %. Probably in the 12 ppm range. That will probably kill your fishing in a aquarium environment.

Don’t worry about the hydrogen Gas off. Unless you are trying to capture the hydrogen in a ballon or something like that, it isn’t any different than the water evaporating or boiling on your stove. Perfectly safe in any room.

The unit should only have to run three hours a day. The emitters have a end of life at around 1600 hours. So if you watered each day 365 days a year the emitters should be replaces at 577 days. a year and a half. A emitter on a 2020 is $39.00.

Hope this helped.People are urged to call with your specific needs and questions.

So in other words, your using the O2 that pre existing in the water, while a stone brings outside air into the water……
