Back in 1966, with a deep interest in ozone technology, physicist Ron Barnes began to research and develop more efficient ways to utilize the outstanding purification abilities of ozone than what was been employed in Europe at that time. Eleven years later in 1977, he built the prototype of the Prozone water purification system that allowed people who were acutely sensitive to chlorine to be able to swim without any unpleasant reactions. The added benefits included a total absence of the offensive chlorine smell, no damage to one’s hair and no red burning eyes. Today, Prozone is headquartered in Huntsville, Alabama and continues to produce innovative products with the Ozone technology.
