e-Clear sanitizes the water and not the swimmer. With e-Clear the powerful disinfecting oxidizers, OH, H2O2 and O1, are produced within a sealed oxygen chamber away from the swimmer rather than in the swimming pool itself.

Oxygen rich water is healthy water. The e-Clear technology mimics nature by producing high saturation levels of O2 in the swimming pool which leaves water sanitized, crystal clear and pure, without the use of toxic chemicals.

 

e-Clear vs. Ozone (O3)

 


 

How does it sanitize the water?

 
e-Clear Ozone  

Electronic oxidation combined with Ionization. e-Clear oxygenation system provides natural oxidation and 100% chlorine and chemical free water.
 

Ozone is produced electronically from Oxygen (O2) using ozonators or UV ozone generators. Ozone gas is a strong, yet unstable oxidizer.

Combined with chlorine/bromine to provide a sanitizing residual.
 

What sanitizing molecules/oxidizers are produced?

     
e-Clear   Ozone
     
Within a sealed chamber, the natural oxidizers OH-, O1-, H2O2 and O2 are generated from the water (H2O) molecule itself.

O2 remain in the water and is combined with copper ions to provide a long-lasting, stable and healthy sanitizing residual.

For some applications also combines UV.

 
  A highly reactive oxidizer, ozone is produced in the swimming pool water where it decays to form OH- radicals.

 

 

Is it 100% chlorine free?
     

e-Clear

 

Ozone

     
Yes.

O2 and copper ions provide an effective and long-lasting sanitizing residual in the swimming pool.

It does not require any chlorine.
 
 
No.

Ozone has a short half life in water (approx 20 min) and therefore requires a sanitizing residual such as chlorine.

How powerful are the oxidizers, i.e. What are their respective Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP) values?

e-Clear

 

Ozone

e-Clear    
Powerful natural oxidizers with High ORP Values (click here for ORP Table):

OH- (2.05), O1- (1.78), H2O2 (Liquid Oxygen - 1.3) and O2 (0.94)

 
 
High ORP Value (click here for ORP Table):

O3 (1.52)


 
How much oxidation is produced?
     

e-Clear

  Ozone
     
Very high and constant oxidation output.
Single pair small anodes generate ~3,500 g/h oxidizers.

Entry Level Patented Stack anode design with autocatalytic oxidation generates from ~40,000g/hr.

Commercial Multiple Stack anode systems are custom made to match bather load.

 
  Oxidation output of domestic ozonators is extremely low, ranging from 0.2g/hr to 8g/hr.

Commercial systems generate approx 100g/hr.

Very expensive industrial systems are required to generate higher levels.

 
Are the oxidizers harmful to the swimmer?
     
e-Clear  

Ozone

     
No, e-clear is 100% non-toxic.

Highly reactive e-clear oxidizers are produced in a sealed chamber, away from the swimmer and not in the swimming pool itself.

In the swimming pool water, Oxygen and Ionization provide water that is sanitized yet healthy and therapeutic, soft and gentle.

No corrosion, red eyes, dried out hair or skin.
 
  Yes, ozone is a powerful and harmful oxidizer that is produced in the swimming pool itself.

Ozone is very harmful when inhaled and can cause bronchial problems.

 
Does it form disinfection by products (DBPs)?
 
e-Clear  

Ozone

     
No DBPs are formed.   Yes, ozone binds organic matter in water to form harmful DBPs, acetaldehydes.

When combined with chlorine and bromine it forms highly toxic DBPs.
     
Does it give off odours/gasses?
     
e-Clear   Ozone
     
No odours and no toxic gasses are generated.   Yes.
Ozone gas has a pungent smell and is harmful when inhaled.
 
Is it eco-friendly and water wise?
     
e-Clear   Ozone
     
Yes.

Does not generate any persistent organic pollutants (POPs)/ DBPs and no greenhouse gas emissions.

Energy efficient.

Water wise, since water is free from harmful chemicals and pollutants swimming pools can be back washed directly to irrigation.
 
  Not Eco-friendly.

Ozone is a greenhouse gas and pollutant at ground level.

Ozonators have a high electrical consumption.

Water wise. With reduced chlorine levels swimming pools can be back washed directly to irrigation.
 
Does your pool pump have to run 24/7?
     
e-Clear   Ozone
     
No, pumps run for normal 8-10 hours in summer.

e-clear sanitizes the pool even when the e-clear system and pumps are switched off.
  Yes, since ozone does not provide a sanitizing residual, pumps have to run 24/7.
     
Is the sanitation pH dependent?
     
e-Clear   Ozone
     
Yes, pH must be managed and maintained at neutral pH, i.e. pH6.8 - 7.2.

pH is very stable due to high levels of Dissolved Oxygen and absence of chemicals in the water, so e-clear pools require ~ 10 x less HCL than chlorine pools.

Oxidation efficiency decreases above pH7.2. Acid management is required to maintain pH below 7.2. Pool acid, a food grade HCL or citric acid is recommended. Since the pH reaction goes to completion immediately water remains chemical free.

No alkaline management required. Even if pH drops to 6.8 water remains soft, gentle and non-corrosive since water is chemical free.
  Yes.

Ozone rapidly decays above pH 7.6 and oxidation efficiency decreases with increasing pH.

Acid management is required.

 
     
How corrosive is it?
     
e-Clear   Ozone
     
Not corrosive.

e-Clear produces oxygen in the water. Oxygen converts calcium in the water to a bicarbonate form which softens the water. Adds years of life to filtration equipment.
 
  Ozone is a strong oxidizer and corrosive.

 

The e-Clear technology is effective against E.coli, Coliforms, Enterococci, Pseudomonas, Giardia, viruses, algae and chlorine resistant organisms such as Legionella and Cryptosporidium.
