Why isn’t HOCI used everywhere?
HCIO solutions have been used for over 100 years and were used during the world wars for disinfecting medical equipment and dressing wounds.
The reason for its limited widespread use has been a lack of shelf stability. HCIO is a highly reactive ROS (Reactive Oxygen Species). This means it reacts very easily and will quickly turn back into saltwater.
Until recently, HCIO solutions would only remain stable for about 90 minutes before turning back into saltwater.
ECOWELL'S HOMEGUARD GENERATORS use a water electrolysis method for generating HCIO that generates a solution that remains stable for an extended period of time.
