The Top 3 Questions People Ask About the ECOsmarte® Pool Purification System
1. How does the ECOsmarte® Pool Purification System work? When your pump runs the ECOsmarte® oxygen electrodes deliver a non-chemical shock to your water when the water passes through your pressure line. Once per week you adjust your pH and take a copper test. You will switch the button on your Electronic Control Unit and ionize for 4 - 8 hours depending on your pool size and bather load. This will put copper in your pool which kills algae and viruses.
2. How hard is the ECOsmarte® to Install? The ECOsmarte® chamber is easy to install. Simply select 11" of your above-ground pipe on the return side between the pump and pool. Make two cuts and PVC glue in our Quick-Change Unions. The Unions allow ¼" error in measurement, so you do not have to be exact. The unit comes pre-wired to plug into any 110V outlet.
3. What are the ECOsmarte® Pool Purification System specifications?

Frequently Asked Questions About The ECOsmarte® Pool Purification System
- Will the metal stain the pool?
- Is it safe to have copper in the water?
- Will I never need chemicals again?
Will the metal stain the pool?
The copper will only stain the pool if you use chlorine with the system. Copper or silver in a pool with chlorine will stain green or black. Our system is 100% chlorine-free. Chlorine stains and bleaches pools, and damages pool equipment.
Is it safe to have copper in the water?
Absolutely. If you drank 2 gallons of pool water you would reach the amount of copper found in a multivitamin.
Will I never need chemicals again?
Only for pH adjustment. We need to neutralize pH to maximize the kill rate of our oxygen and copper. Water without chemical will want to be 7.0 pH, which is pH neutral. We recommend muriatic acid, for pH-down, or baking soda, for pH-up. If you mismanage your pH or copper level and get an algae bloom use a quart of non-metal algaecide or a few pounds of non-chlorine shock (potassium monopersulfate), but the pool requires no regular chemicals for sanitation.
The first seven days your ECOsmarte pool system is set-up are critical. You will need to keep a close eye on two water factors: pH and Copper.
If the pH levels are above 7.2, it will render the copper ions ineffective, which will prevent accurate copper measurements. Therefore, the water in your pool needs to have a pH below 7.2, especially in the first seven days. During the start-up phase, the ECOsmarte pool system will remove old chemicals in the water. During the start-up phase, you will be required to backwash/clean the filter until most of the contaminants have been removed. This will cause a slight increase in the filter pressure, which is a good sign, because the contaminants are being removed.
After a couple of weeks, switch the ECOsmarte Electronic Box to the Ionize position. After 24 hours, conduct another test on the copper and pH levels. First measure the pH level, and if needed, adjust it with muriatic acid diluted in water. When it comes to copper, you want your pool to be between 0.4ppm and 0.7ppm. Once the recommended pH and copper levels are acheived, switch the Ecosmarte electronic box to Oxidize. If your pool registered copper prior to installation, then you would want to ionize until you achieve .8ppm, or until the false indicators have been completely filtered out of the pool.
Your pool should now have a measurement of 0.6ppm copper residual, give or take, with other chemical contaminants approaching zero. Once this has been achieved, you will be able to start the "weekly maintenance" cycle. If your measurements are not correct, then you should consult the user manual that came with your unit. A minimum level of 0.4ppm is required to protect your pool.
Important: Once the minimum copper residual is reached, the ECOsmarte electronic control box will always be set in the "oxidize" mode, unless your weekly water test indicates the copper levels is below 0.4ppm. If your pool goes longer than four days with the copper levels below 0.4ppm, you may have to get it tested at your local pool store, as well as add ZeroPhos™ if necessary.
