Preventive disinfection that provides guaranteed bacteria-free water – 24/7

Keeping the water system free of harmful microorganisms and biofilm is often a challenge. Because even if incoming water is high quality, biofilm can occur. This results in bacteria such as legionella being added to the water and spreading inside the property. Should this happen, affected environments need to be disinfected and equipment such as shower heads replaced. This can be very costly. 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 spaces

Being able to guarantee bacteria-free water is a basic requirement in a property or public environment. Visitors and users should be able to feel safe to drink and use 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, thus spreading the infection further. It can be about shower environments, toilets in shopping centres or kitchens where groceries are handled and rinsed. If an accident should occur and the water becomes infected, a lot of effort will be required to disinfect the water system and get rid of the bacteria. Instead, Anolytech’s environmentally friendly disinfection system disinfects the water continuously for preventive purposes, thus creating security for people in environments where water is used.

Legionella – risks and obligations

Legionella bacteria can, among other things, cause Legionnaires’ disease, which is a serious form of pneumonia. Bacteria spreads to the lungs via water mist such as from broken water jets on shower heads, air mixers on water taps, bubble baths, etc. A Legionella outbreak often has major consequences for operating a property and it does not matter whether or not the water system is new or old, legionella bacteria can still
find its way into cold and hot water pipes. 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 insufficient as flushing does not fix bacteria in the end points of the system, such as in shower hoses, shower heads and taps. If the water system also has problems with biofilm, this means that 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 analyses. 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 ensures bacteria-free water by continuously dosing Anolytech’s disinfection solution AnoDes in the water pipes. AnoDes already effectively kills bacteria, viruses, spores, mould and fungus in small doses and stops the growth of biofilm that otherwise risks clogging the water system. Which, in turn forms a breeding ground for bacteria. Since AnoDes is only made from water, salt and electricity, it does not contain any hazardous chemicals. This makes AnoDes both environmentally friendly and completely harmless to humans. AnoDes also does not affect the taste or smell of the water. AnoDes is produced on site in a facility that you rent from Anolytech and that is connected directly to the property’s water system.

Preventive protection and long-term effect

Anolytech’s system differs from traditional methods where disinfection is only done once problems have arisen and pipes and other parts of the system must be replaced or flushed clean, usually involving the use of harmful chemicals. The intervention only removes the symptoms temporarily, but this does not solve the basic problem that bacteria can be constantly added and spread in the water. Anolytech’s system completely eliminates the problem because small amounts of the bactericidal AnoDes are constantly present in the water pipes. AnoDes also acts as a safe barrier should the incoming water quality be temporarily of lesser quality. 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, e.g., where water mist is spread, or food is handled.

Shower and bath

Spas, public bathing facilities and shower rooms are spaces where a lot of water mist is produced. Continuously dosing AnoDes in the water is a guarantee that Legionella bacteria does not spread on site. The presence of AnoDes in the water also means that shower heads do not need to be replaced as often as before.

Kitchens and restaurants

Bakteriefritt vatten är A och O i kök och restauranger. Med AnoDes i vattnet garanteras att sallad och andra matvaror som behöver sköljas inte tillförs bakterier från vattnet.

Toilets in commercial properties

In commercial properties such as larger office buildings and shopping centres 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 makers

Water disinfected with AnoDes is also perfect for making ice in ice makers, which may otherwise be a source of bacterial contagion.

Hand disinfection

Since AnoDes is produced on site in the property, you can produce your own hand sanitiser by bottling AnoDes. Cost-effective, environmentally friendly and better for the hands because AnoDes does not dry out the skin as alcohol-based hand sanitiser does. We can also offer a hand dispenser with spray nozzle and automatic dosing via sensor. AnoDes is approved as hygienic hand sanitiser in accordance with EN1500.

Disinfection of rooms and surfaces

In addition to guaranteeing bacteria-free drinking water or being used as a hand sanitiser, 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 dry fogging machine that emits a dry mist. The fog spreads in the room and effectively kills bacteria and viruses on the different surfaces of the room. Anolytech offers a dry fogging machine that is approved according to EN standard 17272 for mechanical automated airborne room disinfection.
What is AnoDes
  • There are about 60 different species of legionella bacteria.t.
  • With AnoDes in the water system, you can reduce the amount of water used, decrease chemical consumption and save energy.
  • The bactericidal effect in concentrated AnoDes is 200 times higher than in chlorine.
  • AnoDes attacks, among other things, proteins in the cell membranes of bacteria and other harmful microorganisms so that the cell bursts and dies.
  • Disinfection carried out after problems arise can be expensive and time consuming. With AnoDes, disinfection takes place continuously and preventively, which saves both time and money. When AnoDes is consumed, it returns to its constituents: 99.5% water and 0.5% biodegradable substances. This makes AnoDes completely risk-free for both humans and nature.

"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."
