COPPER/SILVER ION GENERATOR
Spa Deluxe Model M411B designed for spas
Controller with a switch LED
How does it work ?
Lifeguard Purification Systems Inc. has adapted NASA technology to bring you the safest, healthiest, most cost effective way to purify your pool. Safe variable low voltage DC current is conducted into the chamber and electrolysis takes place. Positively charged ions of copper and silver are released. Copper is a natural toxin to algae and bacteria, and silver to bacteria and virus.
Since copper/silver ions do not oxidize (burn-up) sweat, hair oil, bird droppings, etc., a low dosage of chlorine, bleach, or non-chlorine granular shock is needed once a week to keep the pool sanitized. When properly measured, this chlorine "shock" will burn off quickly, leaving the highest water quality you've ever swam in!
How Does Chlorine Purification Differ From Copper/Silver Ion Purification ?
Chlorine oxidizes (burns up) organic compound like algae, viruses, and bacteria (your eyes, hair, skin, etc.). Copper/Silver ions, on the other hand, are toxins which poison and kill organic contaminants while having no effect on the human body. Cu/Ag ions are pH neutral and non-corrosive.
Question and answers about the MINERALIZER !
What is a MINERALIZER ionic generator? Lifeguard Purification Systems Inc. has adapted NASA technology to bring you the safest, healthiest, most cost effective way to help purify your pool with reduced chemical use.
How does it work? Variable low voltage DC current is conducted into the chamber and electrolysis takes place. Positively charged ions of copper and silver are released; copper is a natural toxin to algae and silver to bacteria and
What's so good about ionizer water? The water is purified naturally by minerals. The water has a refreshingly clean and natural smell, soft to the touch, and glistening look, plus a sweet smooth mountain stream like taste.
Is it harmful in any way? The concentration of copper and silver ions released are lower than most types of bottled mineral water. (Drinking water EPA Max=l.3PPM copper purifier range -.2-.4PPM copper) So, in essence, your pool water is clean enough to drink. Live fish and aquatic animals could easily live in your pool like an aquarium. That is how safe and pure your water can be.
What's so bad about chlorinated water? While bathing or showering in chlorinated water, humans can absorb 8 times more chlorine than drinking it. Chloramines are organic contaminant/chlorine compounds commonly found in pools and spas. Chlorine has been hugely beneficial to mankind, but today there are ways, like non-chemical purifiers to eliminate most chlorine consumption by the end user.
Is it easy to operate? These purifiers automatically come on when your timer starts the pump. An ion level dial on the controller is set to your pool size and personality. Ionized water is not affected by heat or sunlight like chlorinated water so purification is continuously assured in both pools and spas, heated or, unheated, indoors or out.
How much savings will there be? You will reduce chemical costs per year. Electrical consumption equates to a very small light bulb.
Is it easy to install? SIMPLE! Mount the controller on the watt, cut a 3 1/2" section of PVC pipe and glue in place the ion chamber. Next plug in the UL rated transformer power supply in a GFCI protected 11OVAC outlet. Nothing to it!
