The ECOsmarte system creates two
sanitizing agents, copper ionization and liquid oxidation. As water
flows from your pump back to your pool it travels through the
ECOsmarte ionization/oxidation chamber. While in the chamber, the
water will either receive copper ions or become oxygenated depending
on the setting of the switch on the controller.
Copper ionization was developed in 1967 for the Apollo Space Program
to insure safe drinking water and to control scale in cooling systems
during space missions. The ECOsmarte System incorporates this same
technology. The copper ions created by the ECOsmarte System are safe
and essential for humans, plants and animals, but are lethal to
bacteria, algae and some viruses. By adding these ions to your pool or
spa water, the ECOsmarte System basically kills bacteria, algae and
certain viruses and prevents them from growing in the water.
Copper ions are only added to the water for a few hours each week in
swimming pools and only a few minutes each week or month in spas. The
residual sanitizer in the water, produced by the ionization process,
is recognized by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) and the U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency.
Natural Non-Chemical Oxidation
ECOsmarte’s proprietary non-chemical method of oxidation is what
separates it from other chemical reducing water purification systems
on the market. Oxidation is achieved by water passing through the
chamber while low voltage electrical current is sent to the coated
titanium plates in the chamber. While in the oxidation mode, a
proprietary process of electrolysis causes the electro-physical
separation of water into oxygen and hydrogen. This separation forms
free oxygen atoms and hydroxyl radicals (OH). This proprietary process
creates a combination of the most powerful oxidizers available for
water disinfection. These oxidizers, the oxygen atoms and hydroxyl
ions, are responsible for eliminating body oils, sun tan lotions and
as well as the dead organic matter (that was killed by the copper
ions). The ECOsmarte system produces oxidizers, measured in grams per
minute, at a level that is not available with ozone generating
systems. Additionally, each ECOsmarte oxidizer is more powerful than
sodium hypochlorite, the dominant form of chlorine.
The combination of copper ionization and non-chemical oxidation
produce pure, clear, clean water not available with other water
