HOW DOES THE EPC IONIZER WORK?
The EPC's controller is designed so that it sends small amounts of DC voltage unto its electrode, which is made up of two copper alloys. Copper, is an element that assists in killing the bacteria and the algae in your pool: so as water passes through the pool's pump and over the electrode, small amounts of copper particles are taken with it, attacking bacteria and algae as it flows throughout the equipment and eventually to the pool itself. Because the EPC ionizer does almost all of this work for you, you can keep your pool looking and feeling fantastic at a low .2 ppm chlorine level, which is up to 90% less chlorine than normally used. It has been proven that maintaining .2 ppm chlorine and .2 ppm copper is more effective sanitation than using just chlorine at 2 ppm. You must also maintain your pH between 7.2 and 7.6. Included are easy to follow (step-by-step) instructions, for the most novice installer, with picture illustrations, and a wiring diagram for the controller and the placement of the electrode.
HOW IS THE EPC IONIZER DIFFERENT?
The EPC ionizer allows you to see what current the electrode is drawing; so after you've regulated the pool's chemicals to their proper levels, you'll know what the electrode's current draw needs to be, which will be the reference you'll use throughout its life. Unlike other ionizers, you will not have to visually inspect the electrode to see if it's been depleted.
Since its controller is capable of up to 3 amps of current, it can be used for many sizes, as well as a wide variety, of pools and spas with only the replacement of the electrode. If you wanted to use the EPC ionizer for a pond, you could use multiple electrodes in line. These ionizers are available with a standard power supply or can be used with a solar panel.
WHAT ABOUT OTHER TYPES OF IONIZERS?
Cartridge ionizers are costly and need to be replaced often; and the floating solar ionizers have small solar panels which require direct sunlight to work properly - they are not able to regulate on cloudy days and have small electrodes. Electronic ionizers are really your best bet for keeping your pool regulated. You can use the EPC controller with a larger solar panel and car battery if you need to work in remote areas without sun for long periods.
