IMHO, copper is useless as a sanitizer, it's mainly an algaecide. It does have some bacteriostatic effect but it has very slow kill times so a residual of chlorine is needed for sanitation. I can't imagine how molecular oxygen would be an effective pool oxidizer. Perhaps they claim it is atomic oxygen but it would not stay in that state for very long. Unless they provide some documentation otherwise(which they don't on their website) I would have to say pseudoscience!KurtV said:Thanks, Evan and Richard. So, O2 is a less effective oxidizer than O3 but is it effective at all? Also, while I imagine the copper can be a fairly effective algaecide, will it otherwise sanitize the water? In other words, are users of this system at risk of exposing swimmers to harmful bacteria?
I don't think they advocate putting any salt in the water.
Well, you've come to the right place for information! Better late, than never. Be sure to check out ourSWG forum when researching your next purchase.wrencresthome said:To anyone thinking about purchasing an Ecosmarte system--please refer to my post on the "Agree to Disagree--Ecosmarte" forum. RUN AWAY VERY FAST! You will have nothing but problems with Ecosmarte. Trust me, I have had the system up until this week, and as switching to SWG.
