Watch Water® is a research company in Germany and constantly developing new materials. We focus strongly on Green Chemistry principles, which target the elimination of Toxic chemicals, Ion-exchange resins and Solvents while developing Environment friendly alternatives.

Amongst the developed technologies, Legio-Oxy® the Advanced Photocatalytic Oxidation (with the use of our proprietary heterogenous Titansorb (TS) catalyst and Oxydes) becomes a very strong and powerful oxidative method to destroy and kill Legionella including biofilm in any application.

Watch Water® develops products and processes in partnership with its’ own branches around the world.

Legio-Oxy®, produces only water and oxygen to form hydroxyl-radicals in an oxidative process. Alternative approaches to water and wastewater or Disinfection that involve Chlorination with HOCL or Sodium-hypochlorite NaOCL represent an aggressive and toxic contribution themselves, being able to produce chlorine gas when dissolved in water (very corrosive and fatal for pipes and human health when inhaled).

Legio-Oxy-Solid-Source of Oxygen

Hydrogen Peroxide is released from Legio-Oxy®. However, to produce oxygen, decomposition of this released hydrogen-peroxide needs a non-toxic catalyst Titansorb (NSF standard certified)

Heterogeneous → Solid−Catalyst to generate oxygen from the → solid Legio-Oxy®.

Solid Legio-Oxy® is so easy to transport, handle and easily combines with water before use for oxygen generation including high-grade Hydroxyl-Radicals. Hydroxyl radicals are ultimately the Powerful-Oxidation process capable of instantly oxidizing Amoebae.

Amoebae as disease training grounds

Amoebae are already recognized for their potential role in protecting, amplifying, or guiding the evolution of over 225 other bacteria, viruses, and fungi. Famously, it is hypothesized that they play a big role in the outbreak of “Legionnaires” disease as they protect them by giving space for Legionella bacteria to multiply. Amoebae can also act as transport vessels for pathogens, enabling the bacteria to enter and infect new hosts. Amoebae can guide harmless bacteria to evolve into dangerous pathogens.

At last, Amoebae are essentially host of Legionella bacteria- especially because they contain amino acids that Legionella needs to grow and biofilms “can support a high concentration of bacterial species that serve as prey for Amoebae."
