I read your .pdf
and I don't think I will be using it but thanks for input.
Stick with the old fashioned recipes
they are far safer, they work, they are cheap
and eco friendly even gin ouzo vinegar etc have no biohazard and Anthium Chloride is A LARGE HAZARD TO ANIMALS WATER COURSES FISH
ETC. Read your own pdf again.
Anthium Chloride is a trade
name not an individual item/chemical
Stabilized Chlorine Dioxide
DuPont offers a large group of stabilized products under the trade
names Anthium Dioxcide®, Carnebon® 200 and Cryocide®.
Each of these is EPA approved and carries ANSI/NSF Standard 60 drinking water
. DuPont also supplies a line of Endimal® stabilized chlorine dioxide products for non-pesticidal applications. All stabilized CLO2 solutions, are offered in 5-gallon pails, 55-gallon drums, 275-gallon totes, and in tank truck quantities to suit customer's particular requirements.
Chlorine dioxide is less corrosive than chlorine and superior for the control of legionella bacteria.
Chlorine dioxide is superior to some other secondary water disinfection methods in that chlorine dioxide:
1) is an EPA registered biocide,
2) is not negatively impacted by pH 3)
does not lose efficacy over time (the bacteria will not grow resistant to it) and
4) is not negatively impacted by silica and phosphate, which are commonly used potable water corrosion
Some unscrupulous biocide manufacturers will state that their product is EPA registered as a biocide. All EPA registered biocides must have a product label that is supplied with the product. This label will contain specifications as far as the product's EPA registration
. EPA will register certain products as a general biocide, but others will have specifications for what bacteria the product can protect against.
For instance, although chlorine dioxide is a registered biocide, it is not registered to protect against Legionella. If a biocide is sold without an EPA approved biocide label that is because the product is not registered as an EPA approved biocide.
It is more effective as a disinfectant than chlorine in most circumstances against water borne pathogenic microbes such as viruses, bacteria and protozoa – including the cysts of Giardia and the oocysts of Cryptosporidium.
The use of chlorine dioxide in water treatment leads to the formation of the by-product chlorite, which is currently limited to a maximum of 1 ppm in drinking water in the USA. This EPA standard limits the use of chlorine dioxide in the USA to relatively high quality water or water, which is to be treated with iron based coagulants (Iron can reduce chlorite to chloride).
It can also be used for air disinfection and was the principal agent used in the decontamination of buildings in the United States after the 2001 anthrax attacks. After the disaster of Hurricane
Katrina in New Orleans
, Louisiana and the surrounding Gulf Coast
, chlorine dioxide has been used to eradicate dangerous mold
from houses inundated by the flood-water.
Chlorine dioxide is used as an oxidant for phenol destruction in waste water streams, control of zebra and quagga mussels in water intakes and for odor
control in the air scrubbers of animal byproduct (rendering) plants.
"Stabilized chlorine dioxide" is used in an oral rinse to treat oral disease and malodor. This term is a misnomer, referring simply to sodium chlorite, not chlorine dioxide.
