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

Electrolyzed Oxidizing Water (EOW) is safe, non-toxic, and eco-friendly. It can replace all chemical sanitizers used in zoos. It is a powerful oxidant that
can elminate microbial pathogens but eventually converts back to is natural form which is just water and salt. EOW is safe on animals as it is non-irritant and gentle on skin and eyes.
It is the ideal sanitizer for replacing chlorine bleach and can effectively sanitize living environments for zoo animals.
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, Dosing, Misting, and Fogging,
EOW can be applied using many different methods.
Pressure sprayers can be used to sanitize equipment and hard surfaces. EOW can be dosed into fountains and pools to disinfect and help maintain sanitation from biofilm and algae.
Large spaces can be sanitized and deodorized using misting and fogging.
Effective Against Microbial Pathogens
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
