The Accent H2O Natural System has two modes, ionization and oxidation. In the oxidation mode, a small D.C. current is applied to form two sanitizing agents from the molecules in the water: oxygen atoms and hydroxyl ions. These two oxidizers eliminate oils and lotions, such as body oil and screen, as well as dead organic matter.
The second mode is called copper ionization. After the water is split into the two oxidizers, the water passes over two copper plates, charged with a low voltage D.C. current. This charge causes copper ions to be released. Copper ionization is the most effective form of algae and fungus control available. While in the chamber, the water will either receive copper ions or become oxygenated depending on the setting of the switch on the controller, thus forming the two modes.
This method of cleansing pool water was developed by NASA’s Apollo Space Program to ensure safe drinking water and to control scale in cooling systems throughout the duration of space missions. Accent H2O Natural Systems use this same space-age technology to clean pool and spa water for consumers. The copper ions used are completely harmless to humans, pets, and plants, but are lethal to bacteria, algae, and other contaminants.
Copper ions only need to be introduced to the water for a handful of hours each week in swimming pools and only a few minutes a week in spas. The residual santizing angent in the water produced by the ionization process is recognized by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
Natural Non-Chemical Oxidation
The Accent H2O Natural System’s unique non-chemical method of oxidation is what differentiates it from other chemical-reducing water purification systems on the market.
Oxidation is achieved by passing water through the chamber while a low-voltage electrical current is sent to the coated titanium plates in the chamber. While the Accent H2O Natural System is switched to the Oxidation mode, a proprietary process of electrolysis causes the separation of water molecules into the most powerful oxidizers available for water disinfection.
These oxidizers, the oxygen atoms and hydroxyl ions, are what eliminates the remnants of oils and lotions as well as dead organic matter killed by the copper ions. The Accent H2O Natural System produces oxidizers which are measured in grams-per-minute, at a level that is not feasible with ozone-generating systems. Additionally, our system-produced oxidizers are more powerful than the dominant form of chlorine, sodium hypochlorite.
The combination of copper ionization and non-chemical oxidation produce pure, clear, pristine water not available with other water-sanitizing systems.
