AquaKLEAR has been proven to help control
bacteria in both field and laboratory testing. While claims to kill specific strains of bacteria must
be backed by research and lab testing against each strain, some common forms of bacteria
have been tested against with
AquaKLEAR, and received very good results. (a
3-log reduction, or 99.9% kill has been proven) We will continue
to test against various forms of bacteria to determine what areas
AquaKLEAR with Hydropath Technology can be effective, and
cases where it may not be
as effective. Currently ECMI is working with a US University to
determine effectiveness in food processing applications as well.
Preliminary results have been very encouraging.
Our AquaKLEAR units are not being promoted as a primary disinfection
system. Primary disinfection must be maintained along with any
supplemental disinfection systems to prevent the possibility of
cross-infection. Cross-infection can occur when bacteria is
introduced into a pool prior to being treated by the supplemental
disinfection system. Be wary of any vendors who claim that
their system will eliminate the need for primary disinfection!

Further research is being conducted to determine what
strains of bacteria that AquaKLEAR is effective with. Pool and spa owners should note that in field case studies
on operating pool systems,
bacteria levels have been significantly reduced or even eliminated with no explanation
other than the implementation of the AquaKLEAR unit. Results
against all tested forms of bacteria have been very impressive.
Note that ALL supplementary disinfection systems are dependant upon existing pump and filtration equipment to do their
job. In any case, an inadequate primary disinfection systems, or
filtration systems, will not be able to achieve a 100% kill of biological
contaminants. The rule of thumb is, the faster the rate of water
turn-over, the better the results that are achievable.
Has been observed to Kill various types of bacteria.
Continues to control bacteria if the associated system cycles
the water at a faster rate than various forms of bacteria can propagate.
Continues to control algae and
Flocculates microbes for easy capture by standard filtration
Will remove limescale from the piping
Continues to keep limescale from forming within the system.
Keeps heating equipment operating at peek efficiency.
Reduces costs for chemicals to control bacteria and reduces scheduled cleaning
cycles of facility equipment.
Improves functionality of UV equipment
by keeping the quartz lens clear of limescale
