Your guarantee of a low-chlorine pool.

Tested and approved by the government.

An ECD® pool replaces chlorine with Electro Chemical Disinfection. It is healthy, environmentally friendly and cost-saving. Moreover, we can turn any existing pool into a low-chlorine ECD® pool..

Health club

ECD® is the only disinfection system that has official approval from the Belgian Health Agency to be used  to swim at low chlorine levels.

How it works?

ECD replaces 80% of chlorine disinfection with electrical disinfection.

80% electrical

An electro-cell is placed in the technical room that applies current to the water. This provides ‘electrical disinfection’ by electrocution of all germs and ‘chemical disinfection’ by creation of Reactive Oxygen Species, also known as free oxygen radicals, which destroy germs through oxidation.

This process in which electrical and chemical disinfection take place simultaneously is called ‘ECD’ Electro Chemical Disinfection.

20% chlorine

A minimal amount of chlorine is added to the water to have a disinfecting buffer, this to absorb contamination from swimmers or from the environment.

Health score

ECD® pool  vs. Traditional Pool

If we compare an ECD® pool with a traditional pool, we can clearly see the difference in the risks and consequences of using chlorine. It is well known that actual chlorine levels not only cause irritation, but also cause respiratory problems and even asthma (see newsletters). With ECD technology, we open up a ‘safe and healthy swimming zone‘ for every swimmer in every pool.

health risks 

Chlorine level

0 – 0,2

From 0,0 to 0,2 the chlorine level is to low and there is a high risk of bacterial infections and contamination .

0,2 – 0,5

Between 0,2 and 0,5 you can swim in complete safety in a low-chlorine ECD pool.

Above 0,5, we see swimmers with irritations, red skin, respiratory problems and development of astma.

About ECD®

Tested and approved by the authorities

ECD® is the only disinfection system that has official approval from the Health Agency to be used  to swim at low chlorine levels. 

ECD® systems were developped and tested for 10 years under supervision of the Belgian Health Agency. This for different  types of public pools:  25m pools, recreational pools, instruction pools, paddling pools.

In the last years, the system has already been installed in different public pools  and  5 new pools will be started up in 2023-2024.
