Deposit Controllers (The Smart Controllers) are specifically designed to
control scale deposits, bacteria, corrosion, algae, and colloids in pools
and spas and their filtration/treatment systems. The electronic deposit controller provides
continual scale and biofilm control in pool and spa systems resulting in reduced maintenance and
more efficient operation.
Triangular Wave IonGuard Purification System disinfects water through a
process called ionization. That process utilizes a low voltage direct
current [DC] to place precise and minute amounts of copper and silver ions
into water systems. Copper ions kill algae and silver ions kill bacteria.
An ion is merely an electronically charged atom or group of atoms. An atom
acquires this charge by gaining or losing electrons. Negatively charged
electrons are one of the three major subatomic particles; the others being
protons, which have a positive charge, and neutrons, which have no charge.
in the Triangular Wave system are positively charged; algae, bacteria and
other particles in the water are negatively charged. The positive to
negative attraction allows the ions to attach to the organisms, penetrate
their cell walls and kill them.
The IonGuard Purification System
is an electrolytic copper/silver ion generator. The system units contain
specifically cast copper/silver alloy electrodes. These electrodes are
mounted in a PVC housing designed specifically for easy access.
When the system is
used in conjunction with a filter, the dead bacteria with the silver ion
attached to it will be large enough for the filter to remove. Normal
filter backwashing will then remove the dead particles.
The criteria for copper and
silver in water are as follows: The EPA standard for drinking water is 1.0
ppm (parts per million) maximum for copper and 50 ppb (parts per billion)
maximum for silver. The system is programmed so that a water test showing
0.25 ppm to 0.35 ppm copper automatically provides the proper ratio of
silver. This will produce drinking water quality in any water system
treated. The system requires no chemicals in their function of controlling
algae and bacteria.
A "current source"
generator powers the IonGuard Purification System. "Voltage
source" generators power other ionization units. In all ionization
units, copper and silver ions plate off of the electrodes and enter the
water. Over time, the electrodes will become smaller, and the gap between
the electrodes will become larger. The current source generator will
automatically compensate for the change in gap size; while the voltage
source generators must be manually inspected and adjusted. The current
source generators on the Triangular Wave IonGuard System offers trouble
We recommend that the IonGuard
Purification System be installed downstream of a Triangular Wave Deposit
Control System. The Deposit Control will keep the IonGuard System
electrodes free of scale and other deposits for more effective results.
And, at the same time, the Deposit Control System will help eliminate
scale and biofilm deposits through the entire pool and spa system.
Without the Triangular Wave
Deposit Control System in place, the ionization electrodes may develop
either a layer of scale or oxidation. In either case, it is necessary to
periodically clean the electrodes with an acid solution. The Deposit
Control System eliminates the need for periodic cleaning.
