The efficacy of using Ag+ and Cu2+ metal ions and colloidal Au combinations (within the limits of current drinking water regulations) for killing Typhoid-Paratyphoid, Legionella pneumophila, Salmonella, Vibrio cholerae asiaticea, Lamblia intestinalis, Cryptosporidium parvum, etc. has been examined. Tests carried out in various laboratories during 1998–2003 have shown the dependence of bacteria killing time on metal ion concentration, initial bacteria concentration, and the influence of the concentration of various ions (Cl−, SO42−, S2–, Fe2+, Fe3+) on the disinfection process.
