This UV ozone generator is similar to the C.A.P. OZN-1, Uvonair, etc. only MUCH, MUCH STRONGER.
The Big Blues have the largest UV bulbs in their class (each Big Blue bulb is about twice the size of the generators mentioned above). There are sizes engineered to fit standard exhaust ducting from 4” to 12". The 12" model will accommodate up to a 1200 cfm fan. The 4" Big Blue can easily be attached directly to the intake or exhaust on the Dayton 265 and 465cfm blowers. The larger units work well with the most popular in-line fans (Can-Fan, Vortex, etc.).
The 4" Big Blue is designed for small grow spaces. The stainless steel housing measures 20” long x 4” in diameter. It contains a single UV-C germicidal bulb which produces over 750mg/hr of ozone. It is energy efficient using less wattage than a 40 watt bulb. This unit can use up to a 465 cfm fan.
The 6" Big Blue is the latest addition to the Big Blue lineup. 2 ozone bulbs for twice the effectiveness of the popular 4 inch model. It will handle up to and beyond 600 cfm.
The 8" Big Blue is our most popular model. This polished stainless steel ozonator has 3 bulbs, each with its own high powered ballast. Adjustable ozone output; each bulb is individually controlled. This redundant fail-safe feature means you are never without odor control. Great for larger spaces and faster results in smaller spaces. This unit measures 20” long x 8” in diameter. Recommended fan size of up to 800 cfm. The 8" Big Blue produces up to 2250 mg/hr.
The 10" Big Blue inch contains 4 bulbs with up to 5 different control settings. Can decontaminate up to 1500 sq. ft.. It is optionally available as a 5 bulb model for larger gardens (special order; contact us for more info). 3000 mg/hr. 20" long x 10" in diameter.
The 12" Big Blue is designed for big, tough jobs. 5 individually controlled bulbs. Ozone output of nearly 4000 mg/hr. Uses up to a 1200 cfm fan.
- The Big Blues are assembled with corrosion resistant stainless steel.
- The Big Blues use a germicidal UV-C lamp that produces the most effective odor killing ozone that ultraviolet technology has to offer.
- UV lamps continue to produce ozone for up to 14 to 18 months of continuous use. After that the light is on, but ozone levels are below optimal. Bulb replacement is easily accomplished by anyone who can change a light bulb! Simply remove the lamp from its snap clips, separate the bulb from its’ power plug. Reverse the order for the installation of a new bulb. No need to return the Big Blue to the manufacturer for bulb replacement.

- Absolutely the perfect solution for odor control
I have a 3 by 3 by 6 ft indoor grow tent. It’s first time in 20 yrs that I’ve grown, and much has changed as far as technology and available products. Shopping and researching online puts everything within reach of my budget. First lights were new, LEDs, offering low heat, lower energy bill and full spectrum. Blackout curtains inside window but covered by mini blinds so nothing seen by passers by looking up at my house, just a mini blind and a window fan insert (more on that to follow).
Odor control was my biggest challenge. I wasted money trying different solutions but was still not 100%. I use a 4 in inline exhaust fan with carbon filter that is hung near top inside the tent thenis sealed with a duct increased to fit, air tight, up against a typical window fan that fits in my window frame-these are cheap to buy online and looks perfectly normal from the outside. Don’t need to turn it on because the exhaust air goes out around the fan blades with ease.
Carbon filter alone was almost perfect but once in a while I could almost smell something, maybe my imagination but any risk of odor escaping was unacceptable and would have meant termination this little project. So I bought an inline Ona block filter that treated the exhaust air one more time outside the tent, connected to the 4 inch ducting. It worked but made a suspicious odor of Ona that was not a normal smell to come from a house. It had a bit of a sour smell too by the time it reached my backyard. I searched and searched for a solutions. I read about ozone generators and lightbulb went on! I forgot I had a nice ozone generator made to treat a whole house, that was stored for a few years in a box. I put it in the room outside grow tent and it completely destroyed all odor, but even on its lowest setting it found its way inside the tent thru seams and other slightly open parts around the tied off extra wire ports. Direct ozone kills plants, and was evident by small gold brown spots showing up on the leaves after only a few uses. This was not gonna work, so back to Ona for outside the tent and inline Ona in exhaust duct. Back to drawing board with ozone on my mind. I found Big Blue ozone generators and watched some YouTube demo videos. It eliminates odor inside ducting and never touched the plants. I was 3 weeks into flowering at this point and the odor was unbelievably strong inside tent. I was even more concerned about slight odor missed by the carbon filter at this point and I was going through a $10 Ona block every 4 days.
I searched for dealers and found a 4 inch inline ozone for sale at BGhydro so ordered it. Bad timing, or good? I got email next day from BGhydro letting me know that the 4 inch is no longer being mfg by Big Blue and offered me the next size up, a 6 inch. Hmmm would it work well if I connected my 4 inch to a 6 inch?
Yes, it did and I found out it works even better. As you probably know you join two different duct sizes with a duct reducer or in this case increasing it. Home Depot had 4 by 6 inch duct reducers so I connected it that way. Ozone works best by building up inside an open area allowing more contact time for odor to take on that extra oxygen atom. That O3 becomes an O2 and the one extra molecule basically splits the organic odor molecule into elements that have no odor. Going from a 4 inch to 6 made a wider opening for the ozone to build up. I added a long section of 6 inch duct after the ozone generator and zig zagged it along the floor to slow ozone and odor air mixture trapping it a little more before it leaves the window and dumps out into open air where neighbors are close by. My plants are so stinky that without proper odor control it would smell up the entire block with a slight breeze so only the best system could be deployed To prevent this from happening.
I’m happy to report that there is no odor whatsoever leaving my house. Ozone has an odor, similar to air in a rainstorm but stronger, however, it quickly dissipates and not even that can be smelled outside.
The cost was an investment in myself, my freedom. It guarantees that no one will know about my project but me. The $270 I paid for it was thousands of dollars cheaper than an attorney too.
Buy this! Put on credit card, sell something but you have to put this inline with your exhaust ducting for complete stealth. They offer an 8 inch and I think even one size bigger, so there’s one for any indoor grow set up. Also the bulbs are replaceable and it has a switch that allows you to use only one bulb for low setting or all of them on high setting. These are also made in the USA, feels like it too. The switch is solid, cord, metal and housing all remind me of the quality products made by some US mfg companies years ago.
So there you go. Odor problem gone, and you get a long-lasting ozone generator made right here in the US so you even help the economy by purchasing one. Best of all, no one will ever know. (Posted on 11/30/2018)
