The Electrolytic Cell - ESIL
As our sources of water become more threatened by contamination and depletion, the ability to effectively and efficiently recycle and reuse our most precious commodity has become a necessity. That's now possible. Thanks to the ESIL water technology - bottled and marketed by Ricochet Water.

It may come as a surprise that the scientific concept which led to the development of ESIL technology has been around for a long time. Today, this patented system not only produces Ricochet water, but has potential applications around the world to make drinkable water from contaminated sources. The use of an electrolytic system to treat water was established in Britain in the late 1880's and plants using steel electrodes existed in the United States in the 1900's.

What ESIL has managed to do is take a proven concept known as "electrolysis" and developed a continuous flow process capable of producing drinking water from a range of contaminated water sources.

The Process
The equipment used in the ESIL water technology consists of multiple series of electrolytic cells containing anodes and cathodes. Low-voltage direct current (DC) is applied as water continuously flows through a labyrinth of holes in the cathodes. The bacterial, parasitic and viral organisms are killed within the ESIL cell.

The electrical current forces all possible reactions in the water to take place.  Heavy metals are rendered inert and neutral. Synthetic organic compounds (dioxins and PCB's) are effectively shattered and broken down. The inert particulates formed after the process are easily removed by standard filtration.

While the process does remove the contaminants, it does NOT remove the naturally occurring mineral salts that make drinking water such an important part of maintaining a healthy body.
