It’s been centuries since the COPPER SILVER IONIZATION has been discovered and used as one of the most effective system for STERELIZATION.
According to the study there are 650 bacteria, viruses and protozoa that this system can kill.
One of them is the LEGIONELLA PNEUMOPHILA which exist and can multiply in the water during summer or too much hot weather.
The system have electrodes which is compose of Copper and Silver Ions, this positive ions are being released into water through electrodes and once they touches the negatively charged area in the microorganism cell walls in the water, it will create a stress to the negative ion and DESTORTED THE CELL WALL OF THIS MICROORGANISM PERMANENTLY.
This system is also cost effective because it does not use any chemicals to work every time and more safe to human as well.
Now a days, they developed this system and becomes one of the State of the Art with a wider range of application.
