So, I have auto cat boxes, and they are cleaned frequently anyway, and overall they're good. But one of our monsters likes to make your eyes likely to water SO, I've been looking for an effective addition to cleaning the air around the boxes because I'm a bit OCD like that.

I bought this cute little gadget called catmouse electronic air purifier. And amazingly enough, it works -- fabulously. However, it does produce ozone, apparently in small amounts. The boxes are in a room the size of a standard bedroom, and the purifier does have a low setting that switches it off and on throughout the day. I really like this gadget so far, but I also have no idea how much ozone it's putting out. I know ozone indoors is bad for you, but this thing is pretty small.

I'm wondering if anyone has tested how much this thing puts out, or has any further knowledge about small ozone purifiers. Apparently it's big working power is that it uses negative ions, and the ozone aspect is minute. But then again, how minute is minute?

Just looking for feedback.

Re: catmouse

For this type of technical data I think you'd have to contact the manufacturer and/or the testing facility that tests all products. I cannot recall the name of that entity...just asked my husband and he said it is UL, Underwriter's Laboratory. Check your machine for the UL label or sticker and if there's one on it, I bet they'd have that kind of information.

Re: catmouse

If the amount of ozone is not enough for you or, more importantly, the kitties, to smell, I'd call it good.
Product liability is a big issue these days, so it probably does not put out enough ozone to be harmful.
