Mineral Enriched Water Conditioning Systems Technology

* Fewer Chemicals * Easier Maintenance  *More Enjoyment

Pacific Hot Tub Solutions is committed to providing our customers the healthiest way to sanitize their water, improving their health, well-being and the experience in their spas, saving time and money.  Our Silver/Copper Ionization technology is far superior to Salt or Bromine generating systems which are corrosive to the components in your hot tub and, at the end of the day, generate high levels of chlorine.

Background: The principal of using metals for water purification goes back hundreds of years.  The benefits of silver’s effectiveness is found throughout history.  In Ancient Greece and Rome, people used silver containers to keep liquids fresh.  Settlers in the American West would put a silver dollar in water overnight to purify it. By the end of the 19th century silver was being used to fill cavities and dropping silver filtrate solution in newborn babies’ eyes to prevent blindness due to infection.   In the late 60’s, early 70’s Johnson Space Center conducted a research program to create a lightweight water purifier that required minimal power and no human monitoring.  The results of this research was an electrolytic silver ion generator.  This unit when placed in the potable water supply and waste water system of a spacecraft, would dispense silver ions sufficient to eliminate bacteria and sanitize the water within hours. From this beginning one of the world’s most advanced water purification systems was developed.

How it Works: Both Silver and Copper have some algaecidal and bactericidal properties.  Copper has the ability to pierce the protective outer membrane of a cell and disrupt enzyme balance as well as allowing other bactericidal and algaecides access to the susceptible part of the organism.  Silver is effective because of its capabilities of interfering with DNA production and accelerating the death phase. Although lethal to bacteria and algae, this process is completely safe to humans. 
In conjunction with the copper/silver ionization, water passes through a powerful magnetic field which polarizes molecules and gives water a positive (+) charge. This gives a silky smooth feel and eliminates the need for adding chemicals.

Advantages: There are a number of advantages to the electrolytic system.  Unlike standard sanitizing chemicals, ions are relatively unaffected by pH, temperature, aeration or sunlight.  As they are not as prone to evaporation or dissipation, they tend to remain resident in the water to provide long-lasting and constant purification.  New ions are added automatically as the water circulates.  Operation of the system is virtually automatic and very simple. Operation costs and maintenance are low.  From a health standpoint it is completely safe, as no toxic chemicals are produced or consumed.  The system is environmentally friendly, and the water is healthy, sanitary and odor free. Water quality is improved dramatically.  The water feels fresh and clean with no chemical smell.  Unlike chlorine, silver is not absorb through your skin or inhaled via the steam. The silver ion system is ideal for those who are allergic or very sensitive to standard sanitizing chemicals and unlike Salt systems it is non-corrosive.  Combining this silver/copper ion system with hybrid UV-C ozone,   creates a perfect dual defense system eliminating the need for and exposure to harsh chemicals.  

This system is unarguably superior to any other automated system available for water purification for swim spas and hot tubs.  The benefits to you, your family, friends and spa are insurmountable.  With this system available to you, only from Pacific Hot Tub Solutions, why would you buy anywhere else and be subjected to traditional, harsh chemicals as well as the ongoing costs and time associated with maintaining your spa?

There has been a great deal of research into the effects of copper-silver ionization of water on a variety of bacteria and other infectious agents. ThomsonTec and Pacific Hot Tub Solutions make no medical or scientific claims, but provides the this data for informational purposes only.
