The purpose of this supplemental manual is to explain how to generate higher concentrations of HOCl using less salt and to present several options for optimizing the pH to between pH 5 and pH 7.
What is the active molecule in the disinfectant generated from water and salt?
The active molecule is hypochlorous acid (HOCl). Hypochlorous acid is a powerful oxidant and is 100 times more efficient at killing bacteria than chlorine bleach or sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl). Hypochlorous acid is safe and natural. It is found in our blood as one of the most powerful biological oxidants generated by our white blood cells against invading pathogens.
How long is the disinfectant active after being generated from the EcoloxTech system?
In a closed container such as a spray bottle, the concentration of hypochlorous acid decreases about 1-2% per day.
How can I test the disinfectant?
Because hypochlorous acid (HOCl) is a free chlorine molecule, you can measure the concentration with standard chlorine test paper in measurements of 10, 50, 100 and 200 parts per million (ppm).
The pH is important because HOCl will be the dominant free chlorine molecule between pH 5 and 7. You can measure the pH with standard pH test paper.
At pH 5, over 99% of the free chlorine molecules will be HOCl. At pH 6, over 90% of the free chlorine molecules will be HOCl. At pH 7, over 80% of the free chlorine molecules will be HOCl. At pH 8, only 20% of the free chlorine molecules will be HOCl.
What kind of salt must I use to generate the disinfectant?
Just pure and natural salt without iodine (ie. kosher salt)
Why does the user manual recommend adding 1 tsp of vinegar?
Adding vinegar is optional but recommended to lower the pH of the water.
What is the difference between the disinfectant made with salt and the degreaser made with potassium carbonate?
The disinfectant made with salt is hypochlorous acid (HOCl), a powerful oxidizing agent. The degreaser made with potassium carbonate is potassium hydroxide (KOH), a powerful reducing agent.
Why is the EcoloxTech system more expensive than some other systems?
It all depends on the quality of the electrolysis cell. EcoloxTech systems use high quality titanium electrolysis cells. Other competing systems may not be generating hypochlorous acid and the electrolysis cell may be built with lower quality alloys which cause the electrolysis cells to deteriorate quickly.
Do I need to purchase any special capsules?
No, we do not require users to purchase expensive capsules like some competing systems. All that is needed is salt for generating HOCl disinfectant or potassium carbonate for generating KOH degreaser.
Can the salt and potassium carbonate be mixed to generate a combined disinfectant and degreaser?
No, the disinfectant is a strong oxidant whereas the degreaser is a strong reducing agent. If the two additives are mixed, the system will not generate any useful solution.
