FAQ: Solar pool ionizer, Solar swimming pool ionizer

What is ionization?
This is a process in which an element acquires or loses electrons. The ionization of copper is the result of the discharge of copper ions.
How does the electrode work?
When the atoms of the copper electrode are ionized, the copper ions will diffuse in the water, and the effects of these ions on the microorganisms are fatal.
How does copper ionization purify water?
Copper ions penetrate the protective outer membrane of algae and bacterial cells, destroying the balance of enzymes, inhibiting the growth and reproduction of bacteria, and cleaning and disinfecting water.
How long does it take to reach the effect?
It depends on many factors and usually takes 2 weeks.
How often should perform a maintenance?
It is recommended to clean the electrode once every one week using the brush supplied with the kit.
How to install?
No need to install, just take it out of the box and put it in water.
Should you continue to use chlorine?
Yes, because some contaminants (such as sunscreen) still make the water turbid, so a small amount of chlorine is needed to keep the water clean and clear.
Need always put in the pool?
Yes, unless the water quality status shows ‘too much copper’, but this possibility is almost non-existentt.
Will it leak water?
ONOSI solar Ionizer is very tightly sealed and generally does not cause water to leak into the interior and cause the water droplets to condense (unless there is a break).

Solar swimming pool ionizer important hint!

Ionization does not eliminate 100% the use of oxidants such as chlorine , but it can be reduced to about 10% of normal usage, which can be eliminated in some cases. It depends on many factors, such as water quality, filter quality, electrode cleaning, light intensity, size of the swimming pool, degree of shading, frequency and number of swimming pools, and so on.
To protect the purity of the water, the ion concentration must be greater than 0.2 ppm, and the desired concentration is between 0.3 and 0.5 ppm. If the water becomes cloudy due to certain contaminants, an oxidizing agent (such as chlorine) may be needed to restore its purity.
