The Eco Laundry System is an eco-conscious appliance designed to work with your residential washing machine. It infuses cold tap water with ozone,hydrogen peroxide and ions and mixes them together through a static mixer to create the ultimate oxidizer known as the hydroxyl radical. The Eco Laundry will deep clean laundry and kill bacteria and viruses without leaving behind any residual detergent buildup.
First, what actually is ozone? Ozone is the same formula as oxygen O2 but with an extra atom O3.
It is created when oxygen is treated with highly charged electrical energy. Ozone was used as early as 1906 to treat the water supply in Paris, France due to its ability to kill some bacteria and viruses.
Around twenty years ago, ozone injection systems were installed in hotels and hospitals when natural gas and electric energy costs to heat hot water - the standard in infectious disease control - soared. Studies showed that exposure to specific levels of ozone could kill bacteria and viruses when used with cold water. These institutions have also found that they can also use fewer chemicals (detergent and bleach) to achieve desired results on lightly soiled fabrics due to the infusion of additional oxygen.
Most of these industrial systems treat water in a holding tank that is fed into the large washers. Final results are highly dependent upon water quality, amount and duration of mechanical action and the chemicals used.
Smaller systems are now available for use with a single home washing machine.
To create the ozone-infused cleaning water, cold water from your washer's water line enters the unit. The control board senses the influx and automatically turns on the system. The water then passes through a water flow switch. Humidity in the surrounding air is passed through the Electrical Air Dryer to increase oxygen levels. The unit's electrical system creates concentrated ozone gas and electrical charges (ions) that dissolve in the water. The infused water then enters the washing machine for all cycles.
You can choose the washing model on the touch key(left bottom side of the Eco Laundry System),there are three ozone levels,high ozone level,low ozone level,zero.When washing socks,underwear, you can choose high ozone level;when washing deep color or cotton clothes,you can choose low ozone level;when you don’t need ozonated water,you can turn it off.
The Eco Laundry System is manufactured by WOWTECH. The system includes a wall-mounted unit that is connected to the water lines supplying your home washer and to the washer itself.
There is a third outlet where water can be added directly to a separate container to use in other home cleaning applications.
Installation is simple with few tools required. A placement template and mounting bracket with hardware are included. It is necessary to have adequate wall space with a couple of feet of the washer and a 120 volt electrical outlet (two prong). Water pressure must be 40 to 75 pounds. If you have hard water or water that contains iron bacteria, the water should be filtered before use in the Eco Laundry system. If your washer requires both hot and cold water outlets to be opened during operation, a Y-valve must be installed and is not included in the kit.
Because ozone can cause rubber to deteriorate, you should check water hoses frequently.
To insure there are limited water leaks and damage, it is recommended to turn off the water supply completely when the washer is not in use. Eco Laundry System should not be installed in areas where water lines may freeze because there is always some water in the system.
Each unit includes a simple quick start guide and an operations manual .
The system can be purchased directly from the WOWTECH,or from distributors. The unit has a one year FREE-WARRANTY.
Ø Energy savings because hot water is no longer needed to clean clothes
Ø Reduction in detergent costs because you use only 1/4 the usual amount of detergent. All stains and heavy soil must be pretreated.
Ø More gentle on clothes,fluffy and soft.
Ø No need for chlorine bleach because it does not perform well in cold water and clothes,will be white without it
Ø To kill up to 99.99% of bacteria
Ø To eliminate washer odor in front load high-efficiency washers
Ø Zero pollution to environment
Ø Three ozone options for different cloth wash ,High Level,Low Level,OFF.
Installation of the Eco Laundry System was simple. Just a good screwdriver and leveling tool are needed. I would recommend that the mounting bracket be centered on a wall stud if possible. Fortunately, the water quality in my area is quite good so no extra filtering is needed.
It is simple to tell if the system is working because there is a slight ozone odor in the laundry area. It is not unpleasant but noticeable. I washed our clothes for several weeks with Eco Laundry System and cold water following the directions to the letter using only 1/4 my usual amount of detergent. I tested with both heavy duty laundry detergent (Tide, Wisk, Persil) and mid-level detergents (Purex, Gain, Arm & Hammer, all). I did not test with discount detergents because they do not produce good results at any time.
The clothes with no visible heavy soil came out smelling fresh and feeling clean. Those with stains that were pretreated had mixed results. Some stains came out with no problem. However, oily stains were still present. These usually require warm or hot water to remove. Clothes that I wear from gardening that have ground-in soil on the knees did not come clean even with pretreating.
Eco Laundry System promises to be more gentle on clothes. This is certainly possible because only cold water is used resulting in less fading and chance of shrinkage due to high temperatures and using less detergent results in less residue remaining in clothes which can actually attract stains and odor.
There are benefits to the Eco Laundry System, however, the unit costs several hundred dollars and the savings in utilities and laundry products will vary widely from home to home. I often wash in cold water and never overdose detergent (that's what measuring spoons are for) so it will take me many years to recoup the purchase costs. However for a large family that doesn't follow every recommended laundry tip, it is possible for the savings to come much more quickly.
Beyond the cost and a few holes in your laundry room wall, there is no harm in installing the Eco Laundry System . For those who have lightly soiled laundry, it can work well for you. Give it a try and see if you are pleased with the results. For those with heavy duty stains, you will still need some hot water and lots of pre-soaking to have clean laundry.
