Overview

LiquiTech® copper silver ionization is the most effective technology for controlling Legionella in water systems. In field evaluations, copper silver ionization has yielded the most successful results and is backed by more than 100 independent research studies.

Copper silver introduces disinfectant ions that travel throughout the plumbing infrastructure and attack Legionella living downstream, embedded in biofilm within the plumbing distribution system, providing systemic disinfection. Copper silver ionization is essential for controlling preexisting Legionella contamination.

This technology provides a controlled release of copper and silver ions into the water supply to kill harmful waterborne pathogens*. Aside from being an effective method for combating Legionella, copper silver ionization is also the most environmentally friendly solution – with no harmful disinfection by-products.

Questions

Copper silver ionization is an electrolysis process which introduces positively charged copper and silver ions into the water supply as current is applied across copper and silver electrodes. The positive ions bind to the negative cell walls of bacteria, which causes the proteins in the cell wall to break down, effectively killing the cell.
Copper silver ionization is effective in both hot and cold water, unlike chemical technologies whose disinfectant rapidly dissipates in hot water environments, rendering them ineffective. It is state and federal EPA-registered (EPA reg. number 68250-1) technology for eradicating Legionella in drinking water. Copper silver ionization requires no chemicals and introduces no dangerous disinfection byproducts. There are no consumables that are unsafe for handling. The ions introduced into the water supply are safe for human consumption, and do not damage the plumbing infrastructure.

Copper Silver Ionization Technology Certifications

LiquiTech® copper silver ionization is certified with various agencies and organizations including
CE, ETL, NSF, and the EPA. Our filters have been extensively evaluated in accordance with
relevant microbiological test protocols in independent laboratories and have passed all rigorous
third-party tests to ensure complete compliance.

How it Works

Our unmatched copper silver method introduces disinfectant ions that travel throughout the
plumbing infrastructure and attack Legionella living downstream, embedded in biofilm within
the plumbing distribution system, providing systemic disinfection. In our method, bacteria is
killed, rather than merely suppressed, as is the case with alternative Legionella treatment
methods.

This technology provides a controlled release of copper and silver ions into the water supply to
kill harmful waterborne pathogens. We disinfect water systems by penetrating through the wall
of the bacteria, irreversibly damaging its key enzyme and consequently inactivating all traces of
the bacteria. This is achieved by applying an electric current across silver and copper coated
electrodes into the bacterial culture to produce nanoparticles that enhance antibiotic action at
the anode. Systemically introducing these disinfectant ions in a facility water system, such as
the plumbing infrastructure, inactivates Legionella and other harmful waterborne pathogens
deeply embedded in the biofilm thereby improving water quality. We ensure bacteria are killed,
rather than merely suppressed, as is the case with alternative Legionella treatment methods.

Aside from being an effective method for combating Legionella, copper silver ionization is also
the most environmentally friendly solution – with no harmful disinfection byproducts.

Features and Benefits of Copper Silver Ionization

Copper silver ionization is the safest and most environmentally friendly solution to your water safety
needs. This method is non-corrosive yet effectively cuts through the biofilm without damaging the
distribution system. The efficacy of copper silver ionization is not dependent on water temperature,
therefore making it effective throughout an entire water system. Copper silver ionization does not
involve any disinfection byproducts and has a longer lasting local affectivity than most other
disinfectants because it remains in the water for a long period of time. Copper silver ionization does not
require consumables that are unsafe for handling. The ions introduced into the water supply are safe for
human consumption and will not cause damage to the plumbing environment.

Be proactive about prevention by letting LiquiTech’s innovative copper silver ionization method help you
create safe, secure, and clean environments that accommodate to your unique needs.
