The Roving Blue O-Pen is a tool to ensure your water is safe to drink. The O-Pen allows you to treat water with a cloud of ozone gas that is used by water treatment plants and bottlers around the world. Ozone happens to be one of the strongest oxidizers available, leaving no toxic or strong-tasting chemicals that could be a problem for your body.
The O-Pen uses electrolytic ozone, which is much more powerful than chlorine and has been shown to be highly effective against multiple forms of bacteria, viruses, cysts and dangerous organisms. This is important because when you travel the world, not all water is safe to drink. If you haven’t developed a local immunity to specific organisms, your body can react extremely harshly. I learned this firsthand on a trip to South America, and I haven’t made the same mistake twice.
Ozone is a serious player in the elimination of microorganisms and parasites. These organisms cannot develop resistance to O-pen. The O-Pen contains a built-in lithium battery and is safe and legal for all airlines in your carry-on baggage. The unit is refillable and should be used with all water, whether it’s in your room, at camp, by a stream, and honestly, even in bottled water if you doubt its source. There is no need to trust anyone; Why not protect yourself and keep your body safe?
Using the Roving Blue O-Pen
The unit is extremely easy to use. Remove the bottom cap, stick the actuator to the bottom of your glass and press the button. It takes about a minute and you can clearly see the ozone coming out of the water with bubbles. Once this is done, it turns off and your water is safe to drink. The unit will run for approximately 50 uses per charge and is easy to plug in and charge.
I use it for all water when I travel, including brushing my teeth. I first treat the water that enters my mouth so that no harmful organisms come into contact with my mouth in any way.
