How Does Ionizing Tap Water Work?
You’ve probably heard of ionized tap water being used in replacement of commercial cleaning products with harmful chemicals. Businesses, like processing plants, hotels, and restaurants, have been using ionized tap water to clean and disinfect. Products, like the GEP Ionator EXP, have become powerful defense tools against the spread of diseases like H1N1 and other potentially harmful bacteria and virus. So you know ionized tap water is great. But what’s the science behind it? How does ionizing tap water actually work?
Ions are atoms or molecules with unequal numbers of electrons and protons, giving them net positive or electrical charge. Oppositely charged ions attract each other (+ attracts –, and – attracts +). Ionizers pass low voltage of electric current to tap water through exchange membranes, creating oxygen-rich water.
Oxidized or ionized tap water is full of positively charged ions which attract electrons from bacteria and consequently kill them. Ionized water can attract dirt and kill bacteria through low levels of electrical field, especially when sprayed. Water can then be wiped away, leaving clean, disinfected, and residue-free surfaces. Ionized water is good for washing and cleaning any place or surface you want bacteria-free.
Ionizers are usually bulky, wall-mounted devices – not the GEP Ionator EXP. It’s a light, easy-to-use, compact and portable, hand-held spray-on ionizer. It is powered by built-in rechargeable battery that takes only 3 hours to charge and lasts up to a week’s use. Just fill its 0.5-liter reservoir with tap water. Ionator EXP’s smart technology senses the water’s mineral content and appropriately adjusts it for consistent cleaning and sanitizing performance. Ionator EXP is just one of the many sustainability products from GoodEarth Products, one of the country’s leading sustainability solutions provider.
