Let me know what you've heard or if you have experience with them....

I am not familiar with the product, but the website is very high on design and very low on substance. I expect customers would have to already know about the products and be looking for them. The site says very little, and while whatever it does looks slick, expensive and cool, its function seems secondary to its style.

There has been a lot of research about the benefits of ozone. On the website there are numerous claims which certainly fall into the known benefits of ozone as a sterilizer, oxidizer, and plant growth enhancer and as a panacea, algae control chemical.

The device is slick and has a cool presentation. The english is stilted but if you read into what they are trying to say, this could be a gem if you could market to a Western culture. The website is slick, aka Apple-esque and similar to Apple marketing the wow factor is about the experience. I understand that if ozone works, which it does, then John, I think you can market it with the right approach.

Asian marketers have a difficult time making sense of Western customers, and vice versa. The 4 Ps: Product, Price, Point of purchase and Promotion are your guide on this one. Are Canadian markets different from others ? Absolutely. The key is getting into the mind of the customer and meeting the need, in this case, you have a a very creative pallet. If I was an entrepreneur, I would test this out with a strong message, and create opinion to enhance the value proposition. An interesting find.

I'll have to look up some articles on O3 in the aquarium. If it works as described, it would be an interesting buy. I'm going to try to find some reviews.

Any idea what the costs on these puppies might end up running, roughly?
