How does a swimming pool ionizer work?
A. A safe low voltage DC current is applied to the copper electrodes. As the ions attempt to move
from one electrode to the other, many of them become suspended in the water.
How do copper ionizers purify water?
A. Copper ions have the ability to pierce the protective outer membrane of a cell and disrupt
enzyme balance thereby killing algae. Although lethal to bacteria and algae, pool ionizers are
completely safe for humans. A multitude of scientific tests have been done proving the
effectiveness of copper ionizer systems in pool and spa applications. Experimentation at the
University of Arizona proves that such mineral ions, in conjunction with trace chlorine are 1,000
times more effective against algae than chlorine alone. Today, using a swimming pool ionizer is
the most natural, safe way to treat your pool. You will be swimming in chemical free, non chlorine
Is pool ionization all that you need for your water?
A. Copper ionization completely purifies water. The only thing you will need other then a pool
ionizer is a PH leveler. Swimming pool ionization is simple and effective.
Are pool ionizers safe?
A. Not only are they safe, but the minerals used for pool water purification are recognized as
essential minerals to the body. Normal concentration in pools and hot tubs is about 1/3 the
amount allowed by the Environmental Protection Agency for drinking water.
How is a pool ionization safer than chemicals?
A. Most, if not all of the chemicals used to purify water are caustic and or toxic. Many of which are
now thought to be Carcinogenic.
How is a swimming pool ionizer better than chemicals?
A. The need for high levels of chemicals is eliminated. Also eliminated are the strong chemical
odors, damaging effects on hair, skin, fabrics, liners and spa equipment.
What are the operational costs of a copper pool ionizer?
A. In most cases, the electrodes will last three to five years and are relatively inexpensive to
replace. The only other cost is the electrical consumption which is only a few dollars a year.
