Common microbial contaminants in water include Cryptosporidium, Giardia lamblia, Legionella, and coliform bacteria. These contaminants can be inactivated through
water electrolysis and the generation of powerful oxidants.
EcoloxTech electrolyzers generate a mix of powerful oxidants by running electricity through a salt water brine.
These oxidants are mixed into the water to be treated at concentrations permitted by the EPA.
Many of the most powerful oxidants are short lived such as chlorine
dioxide and ozone, whereas others are stable in solution such as hypochlorous acid and has a longer lasting effect. Hypochlorous acid is 80 to 100 times more
powerful as a disinfectant than the chlorine molecule that is traditionally used in water disinfection, sodium hypochlorite.
Using electrolyzed water (hypochlorous acid) as a means for disinfecting water is an all-natural process, eliminating the need for toxic concentrated chemicals. Not only is it safer,
but it is more effective and efficient.
