If you have a spa or pool in your backyard, Chlorine Dioxide is one of the best methods for water purification and combating bacteria, the treatment uses chlorine dioxide gas to create a powerful oxidizing agent that kills bacteria and breaks down organic contaminants. It can be used as an alternative to traditional chlorine treatments, which use harmful chemicals such as bleach. It also does not produce chloroform when it comes into contact with organic material like many other disinfectants do.
If you are considering adding a new hot tub or upgrading your current pool equipment, make sure they come equipped with Chlorine Dioxide technology. This treatment is not only better for the environment and your family, but it also saves you money on Chlorine or Bromine treatments because it generates its own oxidizing agent.
- Noted for its speed and effectiveness it takes the fight against biofilm and legionella bacteria in seconds, breaking it down and eliminating all traces.
- Unlike its main competitor, traditional chlorine products, it produces close to no carcinogenic byproducts such as taste or unpleasant smells which means no odor control required.
- Chlorine Dioxide is supplied in a number of different forms with these compact tables being the most convenient.
Why is Chlorine Dioxide so important to use?
Chloride dioxide kills all bacteria in less than 30 seconds when used at a dosage of 0.15 ppm (parts per million) and is the only sanitizer that can be used at this low level. It works as a powerful oxidizing agent to destroy organic contaminants, pesticides, herbicides and other harmful chemicals in your water. Chlorine Dioxide breaks down organics faster than any other treatment method available on the market today.
What does Chlorine Dioxide combat?
Chloride-Dioxide is also effective against algae, mold and mildew and does not produce chloroform gas like regular chlorine treatments do when it comes into contact with organic material such as dead leaves or grass clippings. Chlorine dioxide has been shown to be more than ten times faster at killing the bacteria E. coli than chlorine and Chloramine treatments
Chlorine Dioxide is much more effective at controlling allergens, irritating fumes and odors than traditional Chlorine or Bromine treatment methods, it has also been shown to be much faster acting in neutralizing Chloramines which are often used as Chlorine stabilizers. This product does not produce Chloramines when it reacts with organics in the water, which is why it works better than Chlorine or Bromine treatments to control odor and algae growth
Will using Chlorine Dioxide save me money
Using a Chloride-Dioxide treatment method can save you money because there is a low operating cost and does not lose its effectiveness over time. Chloride-Dioxide is also more stable in water than Chlorine or Bromine treatments, which means less product gets used up if the pool owner fails to maintain their equipment properly.
