Preventive disinfection that provides guaranteed bacteria-free water – around the clock

Keeping the water system free of harmful microorganisms and biofilm is often a challenge. Because even if the incoming water is of high quality, biofilm can occur and bacteria such as legionella are added to the water and spread inside the property.Should this happen, affected environments need to be disinfected and equipment such as shower heads replaced – with large costs as a result. All this can be avoided with Anolytech’s environmentally friendly and preventive water disinfection system that effectively kills bacteria and prevents the growth of biofilm.

Safe properties and public environments

Being able to guarantee a bacteria-free water is a basic requirement in a property or public environment. Visitors and users should be able to feel safe drinking and using the water without the risk of ingesting harmful and unhealthy bacteria. But even if the incoming water is of high quality, there are no guarantees that the water cannot be contaminated inside the property and spread the infection further. It can be shower environments, toilets at shopping centers or kitchens where groceries are handled and rinsed. If an accident should occur and the water becomes infected, great efforts are required to disinfect the water system and get rid of the bacteria. Anolytech’s environmentally friendly disinfection system instead disinfects the water continuously for preventive purposes, thus creating security for people in environments where vatten används.

Legionella – risks and obligations

Legionella bacteria can, among other things, cause Legionnaires’ disease, which is a serious form of pneumonia. The bacteria spread to the lungs via water mist, i.e. when water jets are broken in, for example, shower heads, air mixers on water taps, whirlpool baths, etc. A Legionella outbreak often has major consequences for the operations of a property and it does not matter if the water system is new or old, Legionella bacteria can still find their way into both cold and hot water pipes. And even if the water is heated to over 90 degrees in the water heater, the water system can still
contain legionella. Flushing the system with hot water is also not enough as the flushing does not fix bacteria in the end points of the system, such as shower hoses, showerheads and taps. If the water system also has problems with biofilm, it means that the bacteria can take hold in the biofilm where they multiply and spread to the surrounding water. According to the EU Drinking Water Directive, which has been incorporated into the Swedish Food Agency’s regulations (2001: 30), every property owner is obliged to quality assure drinking water through frequent checks and analyzes. With AnoDes constantly present in the water, the risks of Legionella are radically reduced and it becomes easier to quality assure the water.

Effective against bacteria and biofilm

Anolytech’s unique system secures a bacteria-free water by continuous dosing of Anolytech’s disinfectant solution AnoDes in the water pipes. AnoDes already in small doses effectively kills bacteria, viruses, spores, mold and fungi and stops the growth of biofilm that otherwise risks clogging the water system and in turn being a breeding ground for bacteria. Since AnoDes is made from only water, salt and electricity, it does not contain any hazardous chemicals. This makes AnoDes both environmentally friendly and completely harmless to humans. AnoDes also do not affect the taste or smell of the water. The production of AnoDes takes place on site in a facility that you rent from Anolytech and which is connected directly to the property’s water system.

Preventive protection and long-term effect

Anolytech’s systems differ from traditional methods where the disinfection is done only when the problems have arisen and wires and other parts of the system must be replaced or flushed clean, not infrequently with the help of harmful chemicals. The interventions remove the symptoms at the moment, but do not solve the basic problem that bacteria can constantly be supplied and spread in the water. With Anolytech’s system, the problem is completely eliminated because small amounts of the bacteria-killing AnoDes are constantly present in the water pipes. AnoDes also acts as a safe barrier in case the incoming water deteriorates temporarily. AnoDes then provides preventive protection so that bacterial growth cannot occur.

Legionella in cold water


Biofilm in the water pipes



In some environments, it is especially important to keep the water free of bacteria, for example where water mist spreads or food is handled.

Shower and bath

Spa, badhus och duschrum är utrymmen som alstrar mycket vattendimma. Att kontinuerligt dosera AnoDes i vattnet är en garanti för att legionellabakterier inte sprids på anläggningen. Närvaron av AnoDes i vattnet gör även att duschmunstycken inte behöver bytas i lika stor utsträckning som tidigare.

Kitchen and restaurant

Bacteria-free water is the be-all and end-all in kitchens and restaurants. With AnoDes in the water, it is guaranteed that lettuce and other foods that need to be rinsed are not added to bacteria from the water.

Toilets in commercial real estate

In commercial properties such as larger office buildings and shopping centers with a constant flow of visitors, water taps with air mixers can be a source of infection. In these environments, there is also a need to be able to disinfect surfaces quickly and safely. By bottling AnoDes, it can be used for both surface and hand disinfection.

Ice machines

Water disinfected with AnoDes also works great for making the ice in ice machines, which can otherwise be a source of bacterial spread.

Hand disinfection

Eftersom AnoDes produceras på plats i fastigheten kan ni tillverka er egen handdesinfektion genom att tappa AnoDes på flaska. Kostnadseffektivt, miljövänligt och bättre för händerna eftersom AnoDes inte torkar ut huden som alkoholbaserad handdesinfektion gör. Vi kan även erbjuder  en handdispenser med spraymunstycke och automatisk dosering via sensor. AnoDes är godkänt som hygienisk handdesinfektion enligt EN1500.

Disinfection of rooms and surfaces

In addition to guaranteeing a bacteria-free drinking water or used as a hand sanitizer, AnoDes can be used to disinfect entire rooms, walls, work surfaces, loose objects and utensils. Surfaces and objects can be sprayed by hand, while rooms and premises can be easily disinfected using a dimming machine that emits dry mist. The fog spreads throughout the room and effectively kills bacteria and viruses on the various surfaces of the room. Anolytech offers a dimming machine that is approved according to EN standard 17272 for mechanical automated airborne rumsdisinfektion.
What is AnoDes
  • There can be 700 - 800 different types of bacteria in the drinking water in a stable environment. Often, ordinary water samples measure only a few of these. Anolytech's AnoDes kill all types of bacteria effectively.
  • The bactericidal effect of concentrated AnoDes is 200 times higher than that of chlorine.
  • AnoDes attack, among other things, proteins in the cell membranes of bacteria and other harmful microorganisms so that the cell ruptures and dies.
  • Periodic disinfection efforts can be both expensive and difficult to carry out as the animals need to be moved. With AnoDes, the disinfection takes place continuously with the animals on site.
  • Once used up, AnoDes returns to its constituents: 99.5% water and 0.5% biodegradable substances. This makes AnoDes completely risk-free for both animals and nature. Bacteria that are multi-resistant to antibiotics are not a problem as AnoDes kill these as effectively as other bacteria.

"The best way to fix Legionella is to never let the bacteria take hold in the first place. Anolytech's system prevents attacks so that the spread of infection never occurs. In addition, huge amounts of water are saved because the pipes do not need to be flushed as in traditional Legionella control."
