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
), 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.
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
, spore forming bacteria
viruses (including Norovirus)

What about regulation from FDA, USDA, and EPA?
We have pages dedicated to the regulation of electrolyzed water as it pertains to the

Water Park Sanitation
Electrolyzed Oxidizing Water (EOW) can replace chlorine bleach for sanitizing water parks. EOW has many advantages over bleach in that it is 100% safe on eyes and skin, non-toxic if swallowed, and is friendly to the environment.
No Skin or Eye Irritation. Safe if Swallowed.
Traditional chlorine bleach is manufactured from chlorine gas and sodium hydroxide. It is highly caustic in concentrated form and is still an irritant to skin and eyes when diluted in water. Electrolytically generated hypochlorous
acid is made from just table salt, water, and electricity. It is 100% safe and non-toxic. It does not cause skin irritation. It does not cause eye irritation and it is safe if accidentally swallowed.
EOW is electrically generated hypochlorous acid
which is the most powerful oxidizing chlorine molecule for water disinfection. EWCO systems can be stacked to maintain sanitation of all the water in an entire water park.
EOW is generated on-site and on-demand. The only ingredients needed are salt, water, and electricity.
Concentrated chemicals require purchasing, transporting, storing, and preparation.
Preparation of toxic concentrated chemicals can be a safety hazard for employees as they are respiratory and skin irritants. EOW is 100% safe for employees.
It does not require any special handling. It is non-irritant and does not require gloves or masks.
Application using Spraying, Misting, and Fogging,
EOW can be applied using many different methods.
Pressure sprayers can be used to sanitize equipment and hard surfaces.
Large spaces can be sanitized and deodorized using misting and fogging.
Effective Against Microbial Pathogens
EOW is an ideal alternative to chlorine bleach, quatenary ammoniums (Quats), and peroxide based chemicals.
Not only is electrolyzed sanitation water safe and all-natural, but it is more effective than the chemicals currently being used.
- 100 times more biocidal than chlorine bleach
- Effective against most G+ and G- bacteria
- Effective against VRE, MRSA, and MRSE
- Effective against Mycobacterium tuberculosis
- Effective against HIV, HBV, HCV, and CMV
- No high temperatures are necessary
- Most effective between 50-86 ºF (10-30 ºC)
- Does not cause irritation, safe on eyes and skin
- No protective gear is required
