Healthy drinking water
Thanks to the AquaSmarter M150 and AquaSmarter M150Gold capsules, it is possible to provide everybody a healthy drinking water.
Dr. Stephen Verdon developed a standard Water Purification schedule where everybody can calculate which capsules and how many capsules are needed to achieve a perfect drinking water quality.
This system can be used for small private applications (Boreholes) but also for Municipalities and Industrial Process water.
The system is available for people that use 20 liters of water per day but also for applications of 100.000 m3 of water per day.
The system is USA-EPA certified and is already used by several municipalities for many years.
The AquaSmarter capsules have to be placed in the natural flow in the watertank or reservoir.
For more information about this application or to receive the Water Purification schedule please contact your local distributor.
Swimmingpool instructions AquaSmarter with CLO2 (chlorine dioxide*)
AquaSmarter Start up Procedure for a fresh water Pool:
PUBLIC OUTDOOR POOL HOTEL/AQUA-PARK, WELLNESS CENTRE, ETC.
When the pool is filled with new/fresh water, the AquaSmarter Capsules can be placed directly into the skimmers or directly into the tank.
Place a minimum of 1 AquaSmarter M150 Capsule per 20m3 of water. Suspend the capsules inside the tank and below the water surface.
Do not place them on the bottom of the tank. The best location is inside the tank and after the (sand) filter but they can be placed anywhere where the water circulates.
Place the AquaSmarter in the skimmer, pre-filter, in a reservoir or anywhere the water flows.
Always 1 AquaSmarter M150 per 20m3 of water or 1 AquaSmarter M75 per 10m3 of water.
When the capsules are placed inside the tank and before the (sand) filter, be sure they are placed deep enough in the tank in so they are suspended below any presence of (suntan) oils that may be noticed on the surface of the water in the tank located before the (sand) filter.
The pH level of the water has to be maintained between 7.0 and 7,2.
- After the capsules are placed, dose with 2 liters of ClO2 (0,45%) per day per 80 to 100 m3 of water for the first 2 weeks.
- After 2 more weeks, reduce the dosage to 1 liter of ClO2 (0,45%) per day per 80 to 100 m3 of water.
If you dose manually, dose the ClO2 in the evening and spread the ClO2 (0,45%) over the water surface in the pool. If you dose automatically, be sure the dosing pump will inject equally the daily quantity of ClO2 (0,45%) into the water.
If needed, the dosage can be increased (doubled or tripled) as an option. If needed ClO2(0,45%) residuals can be measured by a photometer with DPD1 reagents or a ClO2 sensor.Back-flush (Backwash) your filters every day or with a minimum of 3 times per week. If needed, a shock dose can be added with 15 to 20 liters of ClO2 (0,45%) per 100m3 of water. Do not use the pool for the first 8 hours after a shock dosage has been added.
Important: Maintain a pH between 7.0 and 7,2 and back flush (Backwash) the filter as much as possible in order to maintain adequate water circulation as to distribute AquaSmarter's positive ions.
AquaSmarter capsules are perfect to keep your fountain free
from algae and provide a crystal clear water thanks to the
AquaSmarter ionization system is the best guarantee to keep
your fountain free from Legionella.
This system will not damage the fountain or the area around
the fountain because the water treated with AquaSmarter
capsules is not corrosive.
The capsules can be placed anywhere in the flow of the
water to spread the positive ions through the total water volume.
We advise you to use 1 AquaSmarter M150 per 10 m3 of water.
This will provide you a safe and crystal clear water for 12 months.

AquaSmarter is a plastic "ball" of about 4.5 cm in diameter with small openings all around, containing precisely measured amounts of pure Silver; Copper; Zinc, Palladium and Carbon as a catalyst or booster, which are blended together, extruded into thin wiring and coiled to create an Electro-Galvanic Process. (Ionization)When the AquaSmarter Ionizing Capsule is submersed in water, the minerals begin to slowly deteriorate to produce "Ionization" or positively charged sub-atomic particles. These positively charged ions which after a certain period (dependding on the application) completely permeate the water and seek out to keep under control 100% of all types of algae, bacteria and most hazardous viruses. AquaSmarter works continuously for 12 month when submersed in the water.
This means that AquaSmarter can be taken out of the water for some time and subnersed later again. The time out of the water stops the activity of AquaSmarter. Thus if you need AquaSmarter only 6 month per year it can be used for 2 years (2 times 6 month)
How does AquaSmarter Work?
The AquaSmarter technology is invented by Dr. Stephen Verdon and is based on the use of 5 materials: Copper, Silver, Palladium, Zinc and Carbon. The water to be treated passes through the specially-designed capsule that contains these 5 materials. The materials in the capsule activate and control the activity of the copper ions (Cu++) and silver ions (Ag+) in the water. This is called an Electro Galvanic process.
Several studies conducted at major universities have proven the high effectiveness of copper and silver ions. Once released into water, these cations with their active surfaces act as powerful and natural disinfecting agents. Within just fractions of a second, the positively charged copper and silver ions form electrostatic bonds with the negatively charged areas of the micro-organisms' cell membranes. This process alters the permeability of their cell walls to that effect that the nutrient intake (photosynthesis) of the micro-organisms is impaired. Once copper and silver penetrate a cell, they attack the sulphur-based amino acids in the cell proteins required by the cell for photosynthesis. As a result, photosynthesis becomes impossible, and the cell becomes inactive.
It has already been known for centuries that silver destroys bacteria and viruses, even those which are resistant to chlorine. Silver sulphate is frequently used in the antibacterial treatment of burns and open wounds and is even used to protect newborns. As is known by a variety of publications, silver ions sustainably strengthen the immune system of the human organismAs a trace element, copper plays a vital role in human metabolism.
Copper is essential to the activity of many proteins and enzymes. It promotes the formation of skin pigments and has important functions in bone metabolism and in the central nervous system. As the body is not itself capable of producing copper, it must obtain copper from nutrients (such as vegetables, wholemeal bread, nuts, oats). The maximum permissible value of copper specified by the German drinking water regulations is 2 mg/l. Thanks to the AquaSmarter technology, we provide perfect water with copper levels of 0,2 mg/l. Most of the "classical electrode based ionization equipment needs copper levels of 0,5 - 0,7 mg/l to achieve acceptable results. The electrodes are not precise, very sensitive for calcium deposits and need a lot of maintenanceThe most important advantage of copper and silver ions is however that they achieve a highly efficient steady effect in water and hence provide sustained protection by disinfecting the water without the use of any toxins over a lengthy period of time.
Even after the filter system has been switched off, this depot effect lasts for more than 2 weeks. Thus, there is no need for repetitive monitoring and readjustments requiring attendance.
The AquaSmarter technology is straightforward to operate and requires no maintenance. It has been demonstrated that copper and silver ions eliminate Cryptosporidium, E. coli, coliform, Pseudomonas and legionnella as well as many other species of bacteria and germs, including chlorine-resistant varieties.
This water disinfection technique can be used in practically all situations where lasting disinfection of bacteria, viruses and algae is required. It is already operational in thousands of swimming pools and whirlpools.
How many AquaSmarters do I need?
This question cannot be answered easily, because the number of AquaSmarters to be used depends on the application. Generally one can say that at the right level of pH and a moderate rate of micro organism in the water ONE AquaSmarter can be used for 15.000 to 20.000 per liters of water. But then again this is just a very general guideline. In Jacuzzi's for example where a high bio contamination could occur we advise to use ONE AquaSmarter per 2000 liter of water. In fish or shrimp ponds we have a good experience with ONE AquaSmarter per 10.000 liters.In situations where the water is actually used, like water companies, drinking water or fruit juice applications it is another matter.In these cases we will always advise per situation. No situation is the same as also not all processes are the same. Still the advantages of AquaSmarter are great.
What are the applications of AquaSmarter?
1. Municipal water and tap water in fact all water that needs to be purified and disinfected on any scale and where we want to avoid the use of any chemicals.
2. Water tanks In all Asian countries people use water tanks to store water, because either the pressure of the municipal water system is not high enough of the supply is regularly interrupted. The tanks - especially in the hot climate - are perfect breeding grounds for all kinds of micro - organism. AquaSmarter keep the tanks clean form micro-organism and algae for 12 month
3. Swimmingpools and Spa's In 90% Chlorine or Chlorine like products are used in swimming pools and Spa's. Apart from the fact that Chlorine is a dangerous product that can cause all kind of problems for human and animal health, Chlorine smells bad, taste not good, causes red eyes and is corrosive.AquaSmarter can fully replace the use of Chlorine in a few weeks time and keep the water in perfect condition. It even softens the water slightly, which give a pleasant feeling.
4. DrinkingwaterAquaSmarter is ideal to use in the production of drinking water and all kind of water based drinks and juices. But also can be used in all places where tanks are placed for drinking water, such as in
- Boats, caravans, private bottling etc.
- Hotels, hospitals...
5. Algae removalAquaSmarter destroys the algae and prevents the re-growth in all kind of situations, as in
- Fishpond, Aquarium, Fountains etc...
- Diesel treatment (Hydrocarbon Utilizing Micro-organisms
AQUASMARTER Capsules: FISHPOND/AQUARIUM
Per each 400 liters of water use 1 Blue Maintenance egg.

Per each 40.000 liters of water use 4 AquaSmarter M150
Place of the capsule: anywhere in the flow for example in the filterhouse.
Treatment of Rainwater by the Water purification schedule:
In some European countries like Belgium, people have to use by law rainwater for flushing the toilets and using the washing machine when they build a new house.
This rainwater is creating odour problems and microbiology contamination.
System 0,5 : (1 AquaSmarter M150 + 1 AquaSmarter M150Gold) can be used for a daily water consumption of up to 400 liter per day.
Ionization time for a tank up to 5000 liter is 3 to 4 days.
Ionisatie time for a tank up to 10.000 liter is 6 to 8 days.
System 1: (2-3 AquaSmarter M150 + 1 AquaSmarter M150Gold) can be used for a daily water consumption of 400 to 2000 liter per day.
Ionization time: 3 to 4 days.
After placing the capsules the first time it is important to generate some flow in the tank once a day. If the capsules are connected with a rope, it is enough the first days,
to move the capsules once a day through the tank (like a thee-bag).
When the water is completely ionized the flow in the tank by using the water is enough to spread the positive ions through the tank. Incoming water will be ionized
immediately if the tank is not completely empty.
