Australia is a world leader in swimming pool technology. Enviroswim’s technology was devised and patented in Australia, and is now patented in the USA, Asia, China, Europe and New Zealand. The development of the technology was approved and granted funding by the Australian Government. Following production, the published independent efficacy tests were conducted by a National Association of Testing Authorities (NATA) government laboratory.

Enviroswim has been tested over a 12 month period by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF), a world renowned independent testing facility for water treatment systems.

NSF Certification

To gain NSF certification, the Enviroswim system had to pass a series of tests including:

  • Microbiological Efficacy – proven to meet required standard as a sanitising system for pools and spas.
  • Longevity Test – continuous running for 8000 hrs at an ambient temperature of 40°C without fault.
  • Uniformity of output – system demonstrated reliable reproducibility of output over test period.
  • Pool surface staining potential – no staining of pool surface during test period.
  • UV and freeze test – components meet UV and freeze test requirements.
  • Chemical resistance test – components meet chemical exposure requirements.
  • Manuals and Test Kits – meet readability and accuracy standard.
  • UL tests – meet stringent tests for electrical safety of all components.


Efficiency as a Sanitiser

Independent testing has demonstrated that the Enviroswim system is more powerful and more effective than chlorine. The system was tested to the Australian State Health Department’s procedure for the introduction of new sanitising systems. The trial used the benchmark test for bacteria Pseudomonas Aeruginosa (PA). The protocol criteria requires a 4 log reduction of Pseudomonas Aeruginosa in 30 seconds.


Treatment MethodLog reduction of PA over time period indicated
30 seconds5 minutes30 minutes
Chlorine (1.0mg/l)<1.872.614.57
Chlorine (2.0mg/l)<1.873.974.87


The Enviroswim ES3 system recorded a 4.895 log reduction of PA after 30 seconds. This exceeds the 4 log reduction required by the NSW Health Department guideline for new disinfection process criteria.

By contrast, chlorine tested at the same time using the same government protocol performed ineffectively. The Enviroswim system’s 30 seconds kill results were equal to the chlorine’s results after 15 minutes. Therefore, it took chlorine 14 minutes and 30 seconds longer to perform to the same standard as the Enviroswim system.
