Meeting your chlorine needs and saving you money
Did you know that HOCl is a much more effective disinfectant for swimming pools and spas than hypochlorite ion.? HOCl is the workhorse created from the addition of a chlorinating compound to destroy bacteria and prevent algae in pools. HOCl is the strong killing agent of chlorination with 99% destructive ability.. The bactericidal effect of free chlorine residual may be accounted for almost entirely in terms of the hypochlorous acid concentration.
Chlorine reacts with a number of common swimming pool contaminants to produce a range of disinfection by-products (DBP). These include mono-chloramine, dichloramine, nitrogen trichloride and the trihalomethanes (THM) trichloromethane, tribromometh-ane, dibromochloromethane and di-chlorobromomethane. Some of these, such as the trihalomethanes and nitrogen trichloride, pose potential health risks, while the chloramines may adversely affect the comfort of swimmers and spectators by causing eye irritation.
Scientists and doctors have long recognised that the HOCl compound is the disinfecting (inactivation) agent needed to destroy viruses, bacteria and protozoan cysts (pathogens).

“A review by Thorn and colleagues in 2012 described both the exceptional antimicrobial efficacy of HOCl (particularly against Cryptosporidium) and its widely studied safety profile.117 They cite a large body of evidence available on safety, including single oral dose and 28-day repeated oral doses showing (1) no adverse effects in rats, (2) studies showing no toxicity to mucous membranes, and (3) accumulation-irritation tests and sensitization tests demonstrating biocompatibility at doses well above expected exposures. In vitro mutagenicity studies, too, have shown no evidence of genotoxicity on either Ames or micronucleus tests. Another broad safety study showed HOCl did not degrade nucleic acids or induce oxidative damage in dermal fibroblasts”.
