Ion Generators are safe and effective water clarification systems for ponds, pondless ponds, and other decorative water features. Ion generators drastically reduce maintenance and assist in creating crystal clear water without the use of chemicals. This process is generally known as copper-silver ionizatoin. a low-voltage electric charge causes copper, silver, and zinc to lose an electron. This creates a positive ion. The ions enter the system and have the ability to disrupt enzyme balance of undesirable growth found in water features.
