What is Electrolyzed Water?
Electrolyzed water has actually been around for many many years used in the food processing industry, agricultural & farming sector, and even healthcare (wound, eye, dental, and even veterinary care). The generators that were used to make Electrolyzed Water is a very large equipment and very costly.
Electrolysed water (aka: Hypochlorous acid, EOW, ECA, electrolyzed oxidizing water, electro-activated water, electro-chemically activated water solution, anolyte water, or super-oxidised water) is produced by the electrolysis of ordinary tap water and a little salt. The electrolysis of such salt solutions produces a solution of Hypochlorous Acid (HOCl). The resulting water produced is a strong disinfectant.
Hypochlorous acid is highly active against all bacterial, viruses, fungus, and even spores.
Are there other names for Electrolyzed Water?
Electrolyzed water is also refered to as :-
Hypochlorous Acid (HOCl)
Electrolyzed oxidizing water (EOW)
Electro-activated water (EAW)
Electro-chemically activated water solution (ECA)
What can Electrolyzed Water be used for?
The electrolysis of the salt solution produces a solution of hypochlorous acid. This water is a known cleanser and disinfectant or sanitizer. It is safe to humans and animals and because, over time it returns to its constituent parts, it is also environmentally friendly. This solution is highly effective at killing: bacteria, viruses, fungi, and spores.
Electrolyzed water has a very broad spectrum of use:
General purpose disinfection & sanitization of facilities and equipment
Wound disinfection and healing
Drinking water disinfection
Fruit and vegetable preservations
Swimming pool disinfection
and many other domestic usage benefits (refer to our Recipe Book)
What does the Medical Industry classify Electrolyzed Water as?
In October 2002, the FDA cleared Electrolyzed Water (aka superoxidized water) as a high-level disinfectant (FDA, personal communication, September 18, 2002).
The microbicidal activity of “superoxidized water,” has been examined The concept of electrolyzing saline to create a disinfectant or antiseptics is appealing because the basic materials of saline and electricity are inexpensive and the end product (i.e., water) does not damage the environment.
“Superoxidized water” has been tested against bacteria, mycobacteria, viruses, fungi, and spores. Freshly generated superoxidized water is rapidly effective (<2 minutes) in achieving a 5-log10 reduction of pathogenic microorganisms (i.e., M. tuberculosis, M. chelonae, poliovirus, HIV, multidrug resistant S. aureus, E. coli, Candida albicans, Enterococcus faecalis, P. aeruginosa)
What is the benefit of aHomeguard?
You don’t see electrolyzed water in stores because HOCl dissolves away after about a week (even quicker if the weather is hot and left in the sunlight). What this means is, it loses its cleaning & deodorizing power very quickly. With aHomeguard, you can now make it fresh at home.
Is Electrolyzed Water safe?
Electrolyzed water is non-toxic, and safe to animals, humans and the environment. It had always been a challenge to limit our exposure from toxic chemical cleaners.
Safe for our kids, our pet, and the environment, Electrolyzed water is the only natural cleaner with no added fragrances, dyes, preservatives, alcohol, or surfactants.
What kind of cost savings can i expect from using aHomeguard and making my own disinfectant at home?
aHomeguard allows you to streamline your cabinet full of cleaning products into just one. The cost for the all-purpose cleaner & deodorizer you make with aHomeguard works on virtually any surface in your home at a great value. You can start saving $$$ from not having to buy the chemical detergent cleaners that you use to get from the stores.
Is Electrolyzed Water made with aHomeguard effective at killing the COVID-19 Virus?
Electrolyzed Water (EW) is scientifically proven as a broad spectrum disinfectant. Very specifically, EW made using the Homeguard Generator has been tested against numerous micro-organisms and this includes the COVID-19 Virus.
Electrolyzed Water made with Homeguard has a kill rate of 99.9% against COVID-19 within 30 seconds of contact.
What makes aHomeguard different from the other Electrolyzed Water / HOCl generators in the market?
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought about many different brands and different quality of products into the market. It is important to understand about the QUALITY of the components used to make the generator (Electrolysis Cell).
The components and the electronic set-up in any Electrolyzed Water generating system is important as this affects the Electrolyzed Water that is being produced. We want our generators to produce Electrolyzed Water (Hypochlorous Acid) and not Sodium Hypochlorite (Bleach).
Homeguard components are of the highest grade that meets Medical Device Standards.
Titanium Electrolysis Cell - The cell must be manufactured in high grade titanium. Systems using electrolysis cells that are manufactured from lower quality metals alloys will deteriorate quickly and may not even be generating hypochlorous acid. It becomes a bigger concern when electrolysis cell are made from steel or other lower grade metals, as the electrolysis cell will generate harmful chromium compounds that can be carcinogenic.
Surface Area of the Electrolysis Cell - Our electrolysis cell holds 7 Patents including a design patent. The Triple Layered Electrodes (TLE) construction gives the Homeguard 30% more generative power versus other brands while using very little salt (ie: only requires 0.5 to 1.0 grams of salt) to generate 1 Litre of Electrolyzed Water (Hypochlorous acid). Lower quality systems will require very large quantities of salt (example: 5 to 27 grams of salt or more) and this makes the solution corrosive. These low quality system maybe generating sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl) Bleach and not hypochlorous acid (HOCl).
