Read the Facts about Chlorine
from the Wisdom of Centuries…
The Superior Aqua Systems utilizes technology that has been around for
thousands of years.
ancient Greeks were the first to discovered
the sanitizing powers of copper. Cryus the Greek, King of Drussia,
carried water in silver plagons on his many military expeditions to
keep water fresh. The Egyptians kept their water in silver
containers to prevent contamination.
- Early American pioneers moving westward
put copper and silver coins into their wooden water casks to provide
them safe drinking water. As the wagons rolled, the agitation caused
the coins to discharge ions (an electrically charged particle) into
obstetrician, F. Crede, instituted
the application of a 1% silver nitrate solution to newborn's eyes
to prevent blindness. Considered a medical milestone, this
devastating disease was immediately cured and is still used today around
the world on new born babies.
Technology developed by NASA.
the 1960's, NASA scientists capitalized
on this knowledge and developed an ionization
system for the Apollo spacecrafts.
They needed a way to supply pure drinking water for the crew on their
long missions without using chlorine. Because chlorine was too toxic
of a chemical to take into space.
- The Johnson
Space Center developed an electrolytic silver-ion generator
only slightly larger than a cigarette pack. The
units were small, lightweight, required minimal power, and chlorine
free. The unit was mounted at various locations in the
portable water supply and wastewater systems, and would dispense
silver-ions to eliminate bacteria and viruses. Superior Aqua Systems was granted a license from NASA to commercially
use their technology as the basis for its purification system. The
company has been featured in NASA magazines, it's spin-off products
have been presented in NASA lectures across the country, and was
nominated by the Johnson Space Center's Product Hall of Fame,
as one of the most successful companies using NASA technology. The units were small,
lightweight, required minimal power, and chlorine free.
the plague-ridden Middle Ages, mothers knew
to place a silver spoon in an infant's
mouth to ward off disease.
sulfadizine is the most widely used antibacterial treatment for burns or
open wounds. Many people die from severe burns because of a lack of bacterial
as as one of the best algae killers know to man, copper
is frequently incorporated into paints and wood preservative to
inhibit the growth of algae and invertebrate organisms.
stores worldwide sell a copper-based algaecide to help kill black algae
- the toughest of all.
carbon filters are impregnated by many companies with silver to prevent
bacterial buildup before it's useful life.
silver is used as the drinking water purfiation of half the world's
airlines and in over 1,000 passenger
ships and in many offshore drilling
