Wouldn't it be sad if we found that chlorination, or fluorination, of municipal water supplies was part of the reason for the huge increase in early-onset Alzheimers disease that has come up in "modern western" nations in the past 20 years? Seems like folks who were born after the 1920's are among the hardest hit, but folks born in the 50's are showing it now too. Apparently even in folks who are just hitting their mid-50's and age 60 now.

Gord, you are the father of knowledge.

Yes low FAC is an indication of reserve after oxidation. The lower the reserve (after dose) the higher the biological loading if you were dosing a consistant qaantity of chlorine or bromine. The best way would be use an ORP probe/mV system and measure the mV of the waste to be treated. Measuring that with pH would then enable you to dose chlorine based on a setpoint and maintain a consistant reserve. I wouldn't use chlorine with sewerage, rather Chlorine dioxide but it would depend on what levels of sanitisation you were trying to achieve.

Why use chorine at all in a head? I just don't see the point.
