Can ozone be used as a disinfectant for Legionella water systems?

Is ozone used at all to disinfect contaminated (or suspected) areas.


Ozone can be used to disinfect for Legionella, however ozone leaves no residual for long-term control of Legionella in distribution systems. Ozone has been evaluated in a water distribution system, but results were inconclusive. To see an overall evaluation, please see Lin JAWWA 1998 in Publications.
