|The Sunflower Zinc Anode makes the air you breathe
fresher and healthier...
...By slowly releasing zinc oxides into the cooler's water system. The Bon Aire Zinc Anode prevents fungus, bacteria and algae from proliferating in the water.
Warm, stagnant water and moist pads of swamp coolers are a breeding ground for bacteria, mold, and mildew. The trapped spores from these microorganisms become airborne and inhaled when the fan is turned on. Large concentrations of these germs can overwhelm our immune system’s ability to kill the invading harmful microorganisms. They can trigger allergies, asthma attacks, headaches, nausea, dizziness, and other respiratory problems. One way to "treat" the water that lies stagnant in the pan is to install a ZINC ANODE. It will control the growth of bacteria and the corrosion in the pan and cooler parts. This prolongs the life of the pads and the pan. Bleach and tablets are a "temporary fix."
Magnesium rod anodes will not prevent the "fishy smell" or control the microorganisms. Only the Zinc Anode can do both. Is there a Zinc Anode in your "swamp cooler" at home, at work, and at school?
