PLEASANT NON-CHEMICAL TREATMENT

Pools, hot tubs and spas are meant for fun and relaxation. But heavy chemical disinfectants can easily make the experience less than enjoyable. Strong smell, skin and eye irritation and even respiratory discomfort are not uncommon. Asthma and chemical allergies can also develop.
Ionic Cupric Copper offers a non-chemical alternative that offers a truly pleasing water experience. Used according to directions, it doesn’t smell or create irritation. Offering year round protection, it is easy and safe to use, cost effective and environmentally responsible.

In commercial use for over a decade, Ionic Cupric Copper is proven effective in the control of algae, bacteria and the toxins they produce in private, condominium, hotel and health club settings.Ionic Cupric Copper simplifies maintenance while ensuring operator safety.Ionic Cupric Copper is also for home pool and spa use.

Ionic Cupric Copper does not dissipate; it is ONLY used up by biological demand.  If it isn’t working it is waiting.  The sun doesn’t make it evaporate like chlorine.  When you have products that dissipate you must use a lot of them to make sure you always have some in the water.

Ionic Cupric Copper is also self dispersing. This doesn’t mean you don’t need your filter, you do, but it does mean that it is able to get all the little corners and places that chemicals that fall to the bottom can not.  Because it is self dispersing you don’t have to dump gallons in to try and make sure it is going to cover all areas.

Ionic Cupric Copper molecules are like having thousands of little soldiers marching around your pool or spa taking care of the bad guys!  Make sure your pool or spa is protected by the best little army around.
