The amount of ions introduced is controlled by the microprocessor control box, an adjustable transformer that changes 220 volt AC current from the power source to a low voltage DC current. The higher the charge, the more ions are released. the amount of ions in the water are determined by a simple copper-ion test kit. The electrodes were designed that when the proper copper-ion level is obtained, the silver level will be correct too. Both the anode and cathode are plated with the same mixture of copper and silver. The polarity is switched back and forth between the electrodes two elements every five (5) minutes to prevent plating of the cathode - a process that reduces the electrode's surface area over time. The polarity change assures equal wear and tear of the two electrodes and prolongs life.
The Johnson Space Center developed an electrolytic silver ion generator only slightly larger than a cigarette pack and weighting only 30 grams. This small ionizer required minimal power and no astronaut monitoring. Mounted at various locations in the potable water supply and wastewater systems, the ionizer would dispense silver ions to eliminate bacteria and viruses. In 1962, silver was approved for use in drinking water by the U.S. Public Health Service. Clearwater was granted a license from NASA to use their technology as the basis for its purification system as an alternative approach to the use of conventional purification chemicals.
Clearwater has been written up in NASA magazines, had its product presented in NASA lectures across the country, and was recently nominated by the Johnson Space Center's "Product Hall of Fame" as one of the most successful companies using NASA technology.
Today, copper is recognized as one of the best algaecide killers known to man. Oxides and sulfates of copper are used for pesticides, algaecides and fungicides. Pool stores worldwide sell copper based algaecide to kill black algae - the toughest of all to kill.

For more than 30 years, the swimming pools of St. Vith have been kept clean and disinfected through the means of copper/silver ionization, without any addition of chlorine and with the full support of local sanitation authorities.
The Clearwater Disinfection System is easy to operate, requires little maintenance and is backed by a 3 or 5 years warranty. The copper and silver ionization has been proven to kill cryptosporidium, E-Coli, V. Cholera, Legionnaires Disease, and many other types of bacteria and viruses.
The Clearwater System can be used on virtually any body of water. We have systems on tens of thousands of swimming pools, spas, cooling towers, hospital water supplies, Marine habitat aquariums, fish ponds, cisterns, lakes, quarries, pilas, drinking water systems - under the counter, household, and bottled water systems.
Water Disinfection Systems

view of the dolphin pool at the
Clearwater Marine Science Center, Clearwater Beach, Florida. Because
high levels of chlorine cause damage to the skins of dolphins and
turtles, the Marine Science Center employs a chlorine-free system of
water purification. The system, is based on technology developed by
NASA during the
Apollo Lunar Landing Program. Clearwater employs
variations of the basic technology in a number of other applications.
For cooling towers, the CLEARWATER ionization systems cleans tanks of
bacteria and algae, while the Clearwater SCALEBLASTER attacks the "scale" and
corrosion that commonly build up in such towers. CLEARWATER produces
systems for desinfecting swimming pools, spas, hot tubs, water recycling
systems, systems for bacteria/algae control in ponds and marine
saltwater habitats, systems for hospital water purification, and
systems for purifying drinking water.
Today, Copper and Silver's natural antimicrobial
properties are being utilized in an array of applications ranging from
anti-bacterial solid surface products to water purification, food
purification, to antiseptics and anti-fungal products to medical devices
and hygiene products.
Results from ongoing clinical trials indicate the important roles for Copper and Silver ionization in reducing contamination in hospital environments, clinics, schools and therefore lowering the risk of healthcare acquired infections.
Many studies conducted world-wide (see our scientific library), have shown copper-silver-ions, when used in combination with reduced levels of Chlorine have a synergistic effect, and offer a dual safety system for safe water.
