Thanks for the link, but after researching the product I went with this one. I don't need the pretty cabinet of the more expensive ones, since we won't be in the house when it's being used, and the cabinet just takes up too much room as well as make it harder to do the repairs that seem to be common place in many of these machines. I had a chance to speak to the owner of the company, who used to fix those machines when they inevitably broke down, (it was impressive how often people spoke of issues on reviews,) and finally decided to start a company making a more substantial product. According to him the cheap wiring and electrical components that get used in the Made in China models degrade with the oxidation from the ozone. The reviews, particularly those on Amazon, back him up.

You are not kidding about getting out of the house. This company tells you to even remove your plants, and to expect it will result in dead bugs. The intent of the machine is to do an ozone shock to the house. They claim that you don't want more exposure of your house to the ozone than is necessary, so it is important to have a powerful enough machine to shock it quickly. Over exposure can compromise petroleum based products such as your carpet pad. Thankfully, we have wood floors. The unit we bought is big enough to do the whole upper floor at one time, and I will leave it on a timer and go for an extended hike while it does it's job. There is a state park near the cabin that I've been wanting to check out.

We also had a little chat about Amazon, which is where I tend to shop. They take 20% of the purchase price for themselves. I bought directly from this guy, and will probably come back for a water treatment system if I like the way this works.

I'll keep the board posted.

really hoping this kills off the spiders and drives the mice away
