Swimming Pool
Oxy-Ion Non-Chemical Water Treatment System
 Copper/Silver Ionization (Disinfection)
Electronic water disinfection utilizing Ionization was first developed by NASA for drinking water purification aboard U.S. spacecraft. An "Ion Chamber", containing specially formulated Copper/Silver alloy electrodes is installed in the pool's recirculation system. A safe, low voltage is applied to the electrodes by the Oxi-Ion Controller, producing "Ions" (positively charged atoms of copper & silver), which enter the water steam, where they act to kill algae, bacteria, viruses, fungus, yeast and mold.
The dead organisms are then removed by the pool's filtration system. The metal ions provide a long-term, stable disinfection residual that is not affected by heat, sunlight or evaporation.
