    Intex ECO is not ozone correct?

    I have done a ton of reading over a very short period, and may have gotten some facts mixed up. Still trying to sort this all out!

    If I remember right, ozone is not that great to use on a residential level because it neutralizes chlorine to an extent.

    I was looking into this SWG. It appears to be pretty new technology, and claims to have an ECO feature (Electrocatalytic Oxidation).

    I tried googling this process, but get pretty lost in the scientific articles that pull up. This is not just creating ozone though correct? It is a different process?

    Does this process essentially work, or at least not cause some other type of issue?

    Also does this generator produce copper? Is there a way to unplug this feature?

    We have been unable to determine if the ECO feature is just fancy talk for what a SWG does in any case, or if they are talking about ozone.

    The copper unit can be very easily unplugged, which we recommend doing.
