Bars & Nightclubs
On-Site Generated Electrolyzed Water
Electrolyzed Oxidizing Water can replace all chemical sanitizers in bars and nightclubs such as quaternary ammonium (Quats) and chlorine bleach.
Electrolyzed Oxidizing Water can sanitize bars, countertops, and tabletops where surgary drinks get spilled and microbial pathogens can grow.
Electrolyzed Oxidizing Water can be used to wash down, sanitize, and deodorize nightclub furniture. It can be applied directly, through spray bottles, or fogging.
Electrolyzed Oxidizing Water is safe and non-irritant and can be used by employees for hand sanitation.
Electrolyzed Oxidizing Water can be used to sanitize contact surfaces, equipment, floors and bathrooms. It does not cause discoloration of floors as seen with chlorine bleach.
On-Site and On-Demand
EWCO systems are compact and easy to install. Systems are designed to generate Electrolyzed Oxidizing Water on-site and on-demand from an additive made yourself with just table salt and water.
What is Electrolyzed Oxidizing Water?
Electrolyzed Oxidizing Water is electrolytically generated hypochlorous acid (HOCl), a neutral-to-acidic electrolyzed water. HOCl has been studied for over 100 years and it is an undeniable fact that it is a more powerful oxidant than chlorine bleach. Only within the last 30 years have we been able to generate solutions of near 100% HOCl in such a stable form. HOCl kills bacteria, bacterial spores, and viruses 100 times more effectively than chlorine bleach.
How does it work?
Electrolyzed Oxidizing Water is a powerful oxidant (800 to 1000 mV) that can kill microbial pathogens immediately upon contact by damaging cell walls or inactivate the pathogen by entering and disrupting proteins, lipids, and DNA.
Has it been researched?
In the last 30 years we have collected over 300 published research articles supporting the use of Electrolyzed Oxidizing Water. Nearly every common bacterial pathogen has been studied such as E. coli, Salmonella, Listeria, Vibrio, Staphylococcus, MRSA, spore forming bacteria, and many common viruses (including Norovirus) and fungi. To learn more please visit our research page and search by microbe or industry to find applicable research.
What about regulation from FDA, USDA, and EPA?
We have pages dedicated to the regulation of electrolyzed water as it pertains to the FDA, USDA, and EPA. Please visit our pages for more information. In regards to healthcare sanitation, see our page for the CDC.
Bars & Nightclubs Sanitation
Bars and Nightclubs are an ideal environment for bacteria and viruses to spread. Electrolyzed Oxidizing Water (EOW) can be used to replace nearly all chemicals used to sanitize bars and nightclubs. Not only is EOW a great sanitizer but it is also a great deodorizer. Sugary drinks are often spilled creating ideal environments for microbial organisms to grow. Bars and tables are being frequently shared by patrons spreading bacteria and viruses by skin contact and respiratory droplets. Bars and nightclubs can develop an odor from all the microorganisms that continue to grow and left unharmed by insufficient sanitation.
EOW is a solution of mixed oxidants of which the primary oxidant is eletrolytically generated hypochlorous acid (HOCl), an antimicrobial that has been recognized by the CDC in their guidelines for disinfection and sterilization. Hypochlorous acid can be applied at concentrations as high as 200 ppm which effectively inactivates most bacteria and viruses in less than 1 minute.
Being that hypochlorous acid is stable in solution, it can be applied through many different methods. In addition to direct application through spray bottles and mops, it can be applied broadly using foggers.
Fogging offers many advantages in that it can distribute EOW into a large area very quickly to sanitize and deodorize. Because EOW is so safe, no protective gear or equipment is required. Fogging can also reach areas that are often missed by direct application such as under tables, chairs, and crevices that cannot be reached.
Not only is EOW safe and all-natural, but it is more effective than the chemicals currently being used.
- 100 times more biocidal than chlorine bleach
- Effective on most G+ and G- bacteria
