Established in 1973, Intec America Corporation was one of the first companies to commercialize the NASA-developed water treatment system, and adapt it for swimming pools. Known as copper ionization, this breakthrough technology was designed to purify water supplies for the astronauts during space exploration.

In addition to adapting this copper ionization system for swimming pools, Intec America offers a wide range of water treatment technologies, including (but not limited to):

  • Filtration
  • Water softening
  • Tannin removal
  • Reverse osmosis
  • Ozonation
  • U/V light

These technologies, offered exclusively by Intec America Corporation, have proven to be among the safest, most cost-effective, and natural treatments available.

The Good

  • Chemical and Chlorine Free
  • Company Experience
  • Free Shipping and Turnaround Time
  • Agricultural Solutions
  • Non-Traditional Water Treatment Projects

Chemical and Chlorine Free

When people think of a swimming pool, they often think of chlorine. And for the past several decades, chlorine has been used as the water purification agent. While chlorine does clean the water, there are several drawbacks, such as a peculiar odor and increased water density. Plus, chlorine can be damaging to the skin and cause itching. 

Intec America’s Copper Ionization offers you a chlorine-free pool. The company’s NASA-developed technology introduces copper ions (essentially using electrolysis). 

There are several advantages of using copper ionization in your swimming pool or hot tub, including the following:

  • 100 percent safe for humans and poses no harm to the environment
  • Pool ionizers can be retrofitted to any existing pool
  • Does not produce harmful disinfection byproducts such as chloroform, chloramines, and trihalomethanes
  • Offers effective, long-lasting, residual protection to prevent microbial growth
  • Less expensive to maintain and easy to operate and keep balanced
  • Chlorine-free, copper-ionized pools are easier to maintain because they are pH neutral

Company Experience

Intec America has been in business since 1973, giving the company over 47 years of experience in the industry. In fact, Intec America was one of the first companies to commercialize the NASA-developed water treatment system and adapt it for swimming pools. 

Free Shipping and Turnaround Time

Intec America offers free shipping on all complete systems. Generally, Intec America ships its products within 24 hours of receiving an order. 

However, the company only processes orders Monday through Friday. Orders that are placed on Thursday could ship Friday or Monday. If a product is not in stock, Intec America will notify you. 

Agricultural Solutions

Although most people use Intec America’s water treatment technologies for their pools, Intec has worked with growers and the largest food integrators for over 30 years. According to the Intec America website, many foodborne pathogens (Campylobacter, Salmonella, E. coli, and Staphylococcus can spread throughout a flock via the drinking water.

To combat this, Intec offers consulting services and training for integrators to assist field technicians on diagnosing problems, bio-security issues related to water, and can assist in implementing line cleaning programs.

Non-Traditional Water Treatment Projects

If you have a unique water treatment project, it might be worth contacting Intec America. Intec has the team in place to assist in non-traditional water treatment projects. The company has assisted in designing systems ranging from portable water treatment systems, cooling towers applications, agricultural, and pharmaceutical applications. Intec’s team can assist with remote monitoring and controls, design and production of electronics systems, and commercialization of emerging technologies.

Intec’s team has extensive experience designing and manufacturing an assortment of control products, including the following:

  • Linear power supplies
  • DC-DC power converters
  • Timers and sequence controls
  • DSP PID closed-loop controls
  • Energy management controls

The Bad

  • Shipping Prices for Maintenance Parts

Shipping Prices for Maintenance Parts

The Bottom Line

Intec America is a fantastic option for anyone looking for a company that offers an array of water treatment technologies. Intec has been in business since 1973 and was the first to commercialize NASA’s ionization technology. This technology allows you to swim in a chlorine-free pool, have clean drinking water, and decrease foodborne pathogens spread through livestock. 

If you have a water treatment project and are unsure if the company can help, we recommend reaching out to the company anyways, as Intec employs a team specifically for non-traditional projects.
