E-Clear Technologies

E-Clear Technologies

The e-clear water treatment technology has been proven through independant pool water testing in our large number of commercial spas, indoor pool and outdoor pool installations. Over the last ten years E-clear has built a large domestic and commercial client base that includes many prestigious hotels, university training and polo pool, health club training pool and leisure pool, swim school academies, school pool, hydrotherapy pool and spa pools worldwide. Although the e-clear pool water treatment system is non-chlorine, where legislation requires a minimum chlorine residual for commercial pool and spas, the chlorine is compatible with the e-clear oxidation and ionization technology providing an added level of water sanitation. Oxidation breakpoint is reached through the e-clear oxygenator system and therefore no harmful chloramine gas and disinfection byproducts (DBPs) are produced.

With e-clear's oxygen water treatment systems, you can swim in healthy oxygen rich mineral pool water that is 'fit to drink!'

Healthy and eco-friendly

E-clear's natural pool oxygenator (O2) technology delivers over 40,000g oxidation/hr making it the most powerful water treatment system currently available for spa pool and heated pool applications. Yet, unlike chlorine or salt chlorinator systems, e-clear generates no harmful chloramine gas or toxic disinfection byproducts (DBPs) providing a guaranteed superior swimming experience without any red eyes, allergies and asthma.

For domestic swimming pools e-clear offers home owners hours of healthy chlorine free swimming, hassle-free pool maintenance and a water wise, eco-friendly alternative to chlorine and salt chlorination.

Easy and cost effective

Fully automated, easy to operate and maintain, with no corrosion to your pool pump, pool filter or pool lining, e-clear provides huge savings in pool maintenance and annual pool cost.

A Proven Solution

This ensures healthy pool water and excellent air quality. E-clear is 100% effective against chlorine-resistant pathogens such as Legionella, Giardia and Cryptosporidium, ensuring that even at minimal chlorine levels pool water is effectively sanitized and compliant with SABS 241, BSI and WHO Health Standards.

Using an advanced electrolysis process the e-clear oxygenator technology generates powerful natural oxidizers, hydroxyl (OH), atomic oxygen (O1), hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) and oxygen (O2) from the water molecule itself.

Dissolved oxygen in the pool is combined with copper ionization to provide a long lasting healthy and natural sanitizing residual in the water.

Since e-clear oxidizers are more powerful than chlorine or ozone and since e-clear produces a sanitizing residual in the water e-clear pools do not require chlorine or other sanitizing chemicals.

The unique feature of e-clear is that swimmers are only exposed to the healthy sanitizing residuals – dissolved O2 and the copper ionization, since OH, O1 and H2O2 are produced within a sealed chamber away from the swimmer.

The powerful oxidizers, OH, O1 and H2O2, combined with O2 and copper, effectively inactivates algae, viruses, bacteria, yeast, fungi and protozoa.

Electronic Oxidation

The Eclear 'stack' technology uses multiple titanium electrodes coated on both sides with a proprietary catalytic mix that include TiO2. Through the electrolysis of water (H2O) and an advanced oxidation process (AOP), high levels of reactive hydroxyl radicals (OH-) and other powerful Oxygen species are produced in a sealed 'Oxygen' chamber. Highly unstable and reverting back to water within milliseconds, OH- reactive species are the strongest oxidants that can be applied in water and acts unselectively and with a high kill-rate to destroy pathogens and other pollutants.

This AOP also produces high levels of Oxygen (O2) in the water which is stable and accumulates to saturation levels in the pool. Dissolved Oxygen (DO) acts as a healthy sanitising residual in the water to inactivate viruses, bacteria, moulds etc. and disinfect the water in a natural and beneficial way.

Stable Dissolved Oxygen (DO) Residual

Also produced within the sealed oxygen chamber, molecular Oxygen (O2) is stable and remains in the water. It is measured as Dissolved Oxygen (DO) in the swimming pool water.

O2 is highly effective against waterborne pathogens, yet healthy and therapeutic for the bather. With high levels of oxygen the water is crystal clear, soft and healthy.


Developed by NASA in 1967 for the Apollo Space Program to provide safe drinking water, the e-clear oxygenator system also incorporates the ionization technology to provide a natural stable sanitizing residual in the water.

Maintained at levels lower than that found in most food supplements and within EC drinking water standards, copper ions provide a long lasting and effective protection against bacteria, algae and most viruses.

An essential trace element for plants and animals, copper is excellent for hair growth and skin and provides a healthy alternative to chlorine.

Ultraviolet (UV)

With increased DO in the water, UV boosts the production of disinfecting OH and H2O2 molecules and is included in all e-clear drinking water systems, recommended for heated hydrotherapy pools and optional for swimming pools.

The e-clear technology is effective against E.coli, Coliforms, Enterococci, Pseudomonas, Giardia, viruses, algae and chlorine resistant organisms such as Legionella and Cryptosporidium.

Healthy Oxygen rich, chemical free pool water

E-clear's natural AOP produces saturated levels of Oxygen in the pool ensuring water remains crystal clear and pure, without the use of aggressive chemicals.

Oxygen rich water is healthy water. Oxygen not only destroys harmful viruses, bacteria, moulds, algae etc. in the water, but is highly beneficial, therapeutic and rejuvenating to the swimmer.

Unlike chlorine, salt chlorination and ozone, e-clear does not produce harmful 'burning' oxidizers in contact with the swimmer.

E-clear's advanced oxidation process (AOP) generates high levels of reactive hydroxyl radicals (OH-) in a sealed 'Oxygen' chamber away from the swimmer. Unstable and reverting back to water within milliseconds, OH- reactive species are the strongest oxidants that can be applied in water and ensure pool water is free from harmful pathogens, yet healthy to the swimmer at all times.

E-clear's oxygen technology is combined with a low level of copper ionization, a proven algaecide and bactericide. The healthy and stable DO and copper ions provide a sanitizing residual that prevents any cross-contamination between swimmers and ensures that swimming pool water remains sanitized and algae free when pumps are not running.

Copper is an essential micronutrient and highly beneficial at trace levels. So with e-clear you're swimming in healthy mineral water that is fit to drink and safe for family and pets.

With e-clear there is no “burning effect” and harmful 'bleach' in the water, so water remains soft and gentle.

With e-clear there are no chloramine gas so no red eyes, dried out skin, allergies and asthma and no disintegrating costumes. With no chloramine gas produced, e-clear pools are 100% odour free.

Unlike chlorine and salt chlorination e-clear does not produce carcinogenic disinfection by-products (DBPs) or Trihalomethanes such as chloroform or bromoform.

E-clear is the only pool treatment system that provides pool water that's healthy and 'fit to drink'.

Eco-friendly & Water Wise

E-clear does not generate any greenhouse gases, chloramine gas, DBPs such as chloroform or bromoform, persistent organo-chlorine pollutants (POPs) or any chemicals that may harm the environment

With no chemicals or salt in the water, you can now back wash directly to your garden/irrigation saving precious water.

With e-clear you can back wash safely without polluting or causing any harmful salinification of natural water ways and wetlands.

Efficient Sanitation

E-Clear delivers more sanitation in 1 minute than any other salt, ozone, UV systems or chlorine can generate in 1 hour.

E-clear oxidizers are more powerful than ozone, chlorine, salt chlorination or bromine and unlike UV and ozone provides a sanitizing residual in the water to prevent cross contamination between swimmers and sanitation when pumps are not running.

Because e-clear produces 100% natural non-selective oxidizers, it is effective against chlorine-resistant pathogens such as Cryptosporidium, Giardia cysts and Legionella.

Unlike competitor systems e-clear systems do not switch between oxygen and ionization modes. With 100% oxidation output water remains efficiently sanitized at all times providing an excellent solution for large commercial pools.

Easy to Maintain

The e-clear oxygenator is self-cleaning and has automated oxidation and ionization output ensuring your water is adequately sanitized at all times.

E-clear systems are easy to operate and requires far less maintenance than chlorinated pools. Basic maintenance includes weekly back wash and pH check and keeping the pool clean and free from debris.

Oxidation plates do not require replacing (only cleaning once a year) and ionization plates need to be replaced approximately every 2-3 years.

With no harmful chlorine to handle, swimming pool maintenance becomes hassle free and safe.

Cost Effective

With huge savings on chemicals and water recycling e-clear offers the most cost effective water sanitation solution currently available.

With e-clear your water is soft and non-corrosive so your pool life is extended considerably providing long-term savings on pumps, filters and pool linings.

Energy Efficient

E-clear uses a sophisticated microprocessor programmed to provide the best energy efficiency possible and as such it requires a far lower electrical draw than ultra-violet, salt chlorinators or ozonators. A domestic unit suitable for volumes up to 80,000L draws only 0.5Amp @ 220V whereas a commercial multichannel unit capable of sanitizing ~250,000L draws only 1 Amp @ 220V power.

Since e-clear produces an effective sanitizing residual in the swimming pool, unlike UV and ozone systems, pumps do not have to run 24/7.

Great for Heated Pools

E-clear is highly efficient when it comes to sanitizing heated water such as jacuzzis and swimming pools in hot climates.

Unlike chlorine that becomes useless over 32°C, e-clear's powerful oxidation and ionization technologies provide a stable sanitizing residual at temperatures exceeding 36°C.

E-clear's natural sanitizers are also not affected by sunlight and therefore do not require any chemical stabilizers.
