Watson Well harnesses the power of ozone technology with other treatment methodologies when designing and building our agricultural water treatment systems for commercial farming.
Ozone is a superior oxidant and unmatched organic disinfectant providing multiple benefits all in one technology. Combined with our filtering methods, we can reduce minerals, heavy metals, while providing chemical free disinfection. Our systems significantly reduce or eliminate the amount of waste water discharge used – compared to other treatment technologies.
Ozone is generated when energy “splits” the stable O2 bond into individual atoms. Once the oxygen atom bond has been broken, the single oxygen atoms try to re-bond or revert to their natural state of O2. During this natural occurrence, three oxygen atoms may temporarily bond together making O3 gas. We say temporarily because as previously mentioned, ozone is very unstable, always wanting to shed the third atom and revert to its natural state of O2. Ozone will degrade over a time frame ranging from a few seconds to 30 minutes. The rate of degradation is a function of water chemistry, pH, and water temperature leaving no chemical residuals behind, only greater levels of dissolved oxygen.
One common method to “split” or break the bond of the O2 atoms is by passing dry, clean air through a high voltage electric field which is known as corona discharge (just like lightning strikes). Once we have generated ozone gas, we utilize a method called a venturi which creates a vacuum pulling the ozone gas into the raw water.
Exceptional farms begin with exceptional water
Our ozone systems have positive impacts with all types of farming – but especially with extremely sensitive plants like Cannabis. Whether outdoor farming, greenhouses, or hydroponic, all farms recognize the immediate benefits of using Ozone produced water. Just one of many benefits of using water made with ozone is the increased levels of dissolved oxygen (DO), which alone, will create an aerobic environment for the plants resulting in the control or elimination of pathogens, reduction in crop losses, and increased plant health and yields.
Features and benefits ozone processed water can provide crops

Reduction of crop loss
Organic, environmentally safe, residue-free
Reduction of chemical use
Decreases time to market
Ozone is a colorless gas that has an odor similar to the smell of the air after a major thunderstorm. The oxygen we breathe (O2) is made up of two oxygen atoms that naturally bind to each other and are very stable. Ozone gas (O3) has three oxygen atoms which consist of a stable pair of (O2) atoms and a third very unstable atom. It is this unstable atom that gives ozone its exceptional power.
Ozone is a fast-acting powerful germicidal agent, far more powerful than peroxide, chlorine, chloramines, or chlorine dioxide, and capable of rapidly neutralizing bacteria, viruses, fungi, mildew, and other organisms, from water all without toxic compounds or leaving harmful residues. Ozone is also an extremely powerful oxidizer, far more efficient than many chemical processes currently used. Ozone will precipitate out of solution many minerals, heavy metals, and organic or chemical compounds with a short reaction time.
Incredible Difference in Our Crops
In less than two months of using water made from Watson’s Ozone Water Treatment System, we are watering our farm with clear pure treated water which actually contains over 300% more dissolved oxygen to all the plants roots. The difference it is made with our crops this year is incredible.

We can count on them more than any other contractor or service provider we know!
Don Watson and his family have been providing experienced and reliable service to our well-water system since 2011. In those seven years, Watson Well has made a number of timely emergency service calls at any time of day and night, upgraded our water system, and rehabilitated our well.Mr and Mrs R.W. Goodlake
Thank you Watson Well for saving our well!
When our well stopped producing water this summer, I called Watson Well. They used a special pump and opened up the well from 67’ to 132’. While inspecting the well with a video camera, they found that the wells steel casing had deteriorated in a number of places leaving large holes where sand and gravel were continuing to enter the well. They immediately installed a new liner and gravel packed the well. Our well has never produced this much water volume in twenty years of living on this property. We are also noticing a tremendous improvement in the quality of the water.
Don, his sons, and employees are all very knowledgeable and professional and did our projects at a very reasonable cost.
As Public Works Director for the Bear River Band of the Rohnerville Rancheria, I have contracted with Watson Well on five different projects for the tribe, here in Loleta, CA. Their company has completely replaced both of our main water systems submersible pumps and piping, which was not an easy task, as those wells are very deep. These projects were done very quickly and efficiently, while still maintaining a potable water supply to everyone at all times. They have the tools and equipment to not only handle the small jobs, but large jobs like this also. They have also installed three water softening units for us, as our water is very hard. These are big commercial units and all are working flawlessly. They have also developed a small rural water system for us on a piece of property the tribe recently purchased, to supply water to livestock. All of the work they have done for us is doing what they said it would do, without any problems or issues. Don, his sons, and employees are all very knowledgeable and professional and did our projects at a very reasonable cost. They stand behind their work and are only a phone call away. I would highly recommend Watson Well for any water project, no matter what the size, if you want it done right, on time and on budget, you won’t be disappointed.

Thank you so much for the excellent response and care we have received. Your crew was courteous, prompt, clean, knowledgeable and very hard working!
It is hard to believe that it has been 9 months since I called you with an “out of water” problem on our property. It is not the call that any one on a well wants to make during a record breaking drought. You were here in a very short time and after taking in all the normal diagnostics you were concerned about us being dry but not convinced it was a true dry well. I think we were very fortunate that you had the ability to put a camera down our well to see what was happening and came up with a plan to rehabilitate our well after you discovered our weep holes for the well were plugged with iron bacteria, calcium and stuff. It gave us hope that we could get this reliable well up and running. You pulled the pump and line and determined that pump was fine. Once that was clear you put in the proper chemicals and literally scrubbed our well pipe of the “stuff” and found that our well was over 200’ deep. Water flowed and once the junk was sucked out of the well bottom and the chemicals neutralized we had 18’ more water which put us at over a 50’ column of water, of course this was fantastic. While here, all new water line and electrical wire was reinstalled and new electronics that were more current and a vast improvement of what we had. Since then the water keeps flowing with generous amounts and quality.

I can only offer my highest praise for Don and his employees; thus I rank them 10 out of 10.
During the past two years, Watson Well has designed, constructed, and maintained a number of different projects at my home. These include new water storage tanks, a water treatment system, new piping from the pump house to the residence along with separate lines and faucets for untreated water; and a complex rain water catchment system including tanks, piping and faucets to different locations, all while providing flexibility directing the water to different areas as needed. Don Watson and his crew worked efficiently and coordinated the different aspects of the jobs in an effective manner. All systems continue to operate as expected without any problems. Don was always extremely helpful and receptive to new ideas which he easily incorporated into the projects.
