What is eWater?

eWater Hygiene Systems are a powerful and toxic free alternative to packaged chemicals. Our systems use salt water electrolysis technology to generate three different solutions for use as a cleaner, stain remover and sanitiser. The solutions generated have the following characteristics:

Cleaning Solution

Detergent Cleaner with degreasing characteristics

Smear, residue free

Alkaline solution

Stain Remover

Has both cleaning and antimicrobial properties

pH neutral solution formed by mixing cleaner and sanitiser together

Sanitising Solution

Antimicrobial sanitiser 

Acidic solution with a slight smell of chlorine and high oxidative potential

Each of these solutions is non-toxic, sustainable and cheap to generate. In fact, the only inputs to create these two solutions are salt, water and electricity. One of the key benefits of using eWater Systems is that you generate your cleaning and sanitizing solution on demand. Think of it has having your own production factory in your cleaning cupboard.


Getting Started

Producing your eWater Solution

Refer to the operational instructions of your system for producing eWater cleaner and sanitiser. If you are unsure or have any questions about this, please contact us.

Shelf Life

While the cleaning solution has an indefinite shelf life, the sanitiser and 50:50 solutions are best replaced once a week. Our users have found that mixing eWater solution with warm water improves performance in some circumstances. We have highlighted these cases in our guide below.

PPE considerations

As a naturally occurring acid and alkaline solution no PPEs are required and in fact, we regularly receive feedback from our customers that their hands have never been healthier after getting rid of packaged chemicals.

Beware of the miracle

At eWater we think this technology is a miracle, but it is important to note that it is not a miracle for everything. Just like packaged chemicals, eWater cleaners and sanitisers are great at many things, but there may be times when solvents, abrasive cleaners or other specialist products are required.
