The Copper Electrolyzer is installed before the pond returns to the inlet. The pond water flows through the Copper Electrolyzer unit. A copper unit, or Electrolyzer, is positioned within the housing, and the copper unit discharges a minimal amount of copper ions into the water flowing through the housing. These copper ions (Cu2+) in the water have a positive charge and attach to and destroy the cell walls of algae, bacteria, viruses, and other primitive organisms. As the cell wall is thereby damaged, these organisms are no longer able to take up any nutrients and are therefore unable to multiply. The process of applying a positive charge to copper is called copper electrolysis. Inlet/outlet: Ø50
PLEASE NOTE: (too much) copper is harmful to fish!
