How does the
IonGuard Purification System Work?
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.
