Ecolox Tech Eco One Hypochlorous Electrolyzed water generator
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Making disinfectant is easy. Just fill the pitcher with water and add kosher salt. Power on the system and within minutes a cleaner & disinfectant is generated called hypochlorous acid (HOCl) also known as electrolyzed water.
Alternatively a cleaner & degreaser can be generated by substituting kosher salt for food grade potassium carbonate.
WHY IS SYSTEM QUALITY IMPORTANT?
Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, many low quality hypochlorous acid generators from China have flooded the market. It is important to understand why quality is important. Below are some key points to consider before making a purchase:
Titanium Electrolysis Cell - The cell must be manufactured with a high grade titanium coating. Systems using electrolysis cells that are manufactured from lower quality alloys will deteriorate quickly and may not be generating hypochlorous acid. If the electrolysis cell is made from steel or other lower grade metals, the electrolysis cell will deteriorate very quickly and will generate harmful chromium compounds that can be carcinogenic.
Size of the Electrolysis Cell - Our electrolysis cell is relatively large for a 1 Liter pitcher and only requires 2 grams of salt to generate 200 ppm of hypochlorous acid. Even higher concentrations can be generated if the system is run for extra cycles. Many low quality systems manufactured in China are requiring very large quantities of salt. If you see that the directions on a system require 5 to 20 grams of salt per Liter, you can be sure that the electrolysis cell is very small and your solution salinity will be extremely high. Most likely the system is generating sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl) and not hypochlorous acid (HOCl).
Concentrations up to 200 ppm of hypochlorous acid (HOCl)
Production Rate (Setting 1): 1 Liter at 40 ppm in 3 minutes
Production Rate (Setting 2): 1 Liter at 60 ppm in 5 minutes
Production Rate (Setting 3): 1 Liter at 100 ppm in 8 minutes
Production Rate (Setting 3): 1 Liter at 200 ppm in 16 minutes
Oxidation Potential of Anolyte (HOCl): +800 to +1000 mV
Concentrations over 400 ppm of hypochlorous acid (HOCl)
After generating 200 ppm, if you continue to run additional cycles on setting 3 (8-minute cycles), each additional cycle will raise the concentration approximately 80 ppm.
Production Rate (Setting 3): 1 Liter at 400 ppm in 40 minutes (five 8-minute cycles)
EXPECTED LIFESPAN OF SYSTEM

Eco One System Power Adapter (US Plug)
Eco One User Manual
1 gram measuring spoon
100 gram sample of Potassium Carbonate (for making degreaser)
Note: Kosher Salt is not included (for making hypochlorous acid)
What about the salt for making HOCl disinfectant?You will need to purchase non-iodized food grade salt at your local supermarket (ie. kosher salt).What about the potassium carbonate for making KOH degreaser?A 100 gram sample of food grade potassium carbonate is included, enough to generate 50 liters of degreaser.
