How are copper and silver ions created, and how do they prevent the growth of Legionella bacteria?

CSIDefender® Ion Chamber Cells contain medical grade electrodes which release positively charged copper and silver ions into the potable water distribution network. These ions bond with and neutralize Legionella bacteria, while saturating the biofilm where Legionella grows to prevent future growth. The result is a powerful and reliable solution that works across the entire water distribution system and keeps facility occupants safe from potential exposure.
