ECA-1 Hypochlorous Acid Manufacturing Cell

Hypochlorous acid is used in many industries including Hospitality, Food service, Grocery/ Retail, Post harvest vegetable production, Hydroponics, and Medical services.

What is Hypochlorous acid?

ECA water (Electrochemically Activated Water) or Electrolyzed water is made by passing low-voltage electricity through saltwater (Sodium Chloride) in the ECA-1 and splitting the Sodium ions (Catholyte) from the Chlorine ions (Anolyte – Hypochlorous acid).

Is it safe?

When any mammal’s body comes under attack from invading bacteria and viruses, the body’s immune system immediately responds by sending white blood cells called Neutrophil to the invasion site. Once activated, these cells produce substantial quantities of Hypochlorous acid (HOCI) a chemical that is acknowledged to be among the most potent natural disinfectants, highly effective in eliminating all invading microbes and pathogens, yet it remains non-toxic to humans and other mammals.

Hypochlorous acid is proven to be safe, environmentally friendly, and fast acting against a broad range of resistant pathogens, including MRSA, M.tuberculosis, Legionella, E.coli, HIV, poliovirus, Helicobacter pylori, norovirus, the avian influenza virus, and many more.

Hypochlorous acid (HOCL) has been both FDA and USDA approved for various medical and food uses and the EPA has also given approval for washing raw foods that are to be consumed without processing.

Sodium FREE Hypochlorous Acid

Horticulture Applications

Sodium free Hypochlorous acid with a pH balanced at 6.8 is used for removing mineral deposits and the elimination of harmful biofilms in nutrient lines and reservoirs minimizing the habitat for plant pathogens.

Sodium free Hypochlorous acid is suitable for all hydroponics applications including: Ebb-N-Flow, Rockwool, DWC, NFT, DTW, and RDWC applications.


• Use in all hydroponics growing systems
• Maintains a clean and clear nutrient solution
• Dissolves mineral buildups, reducing the risk of nutrient lockout
• Increases ORP, creating an environment unsuitable for pathogen and fungi development
• Broad activity against bacteria, fungi, viruses, and algae
• Prevent the buildup of slime, algae, and fungus in nutrient lines, tanks, and drippers
• Encourage superior root growth
• Prevent root disease in propagation
• No risk of root burn
• Neutral pH of 6.8, NO pH buffers necessary
• Use at any stage of growth all the way to harvest
