How Potable Aqua® Chlorine Dioxide Tablets work: Dissolving the tablets in water releases chlorine dioxide, a water-soluble gas and powerful biocide that exhibits an effective and rapid kill of multiple organisms under a wide pH range. Chlorine dioxide gas works by penetrating the cell walls of contaminating microorganisms, reacting with vital amino acids within the cell and, ultimately, killing the organism.

The advantages of using Potable Aqua® Chlorine Dioxide Tablets: The tablets are convenient to use and can be stored for long periods of time; kills a wide range of bacteria, viruses and cysts; and improves the taste and odour of water, rather than presenting a &quo;hlorine smell" or taste. In addition, with 2.6 times the oxidising capacity of chlorine, chlorine dioxide has demonstrated four-to-seven times greater biocidal activity at equivalent doses. Among the many advantages offered by Potable Aqua® Chlorine Dioxide Water Purification Tablets as compared to alternative antimicrobial agents are:

  • Works against a wide variety of bacteria, yeasts, viruses, fungi, protozoa, spores, molds, mildews, and other microbes
  • Demonstrated 4-7 times the biocidal activity of sodium hypochlorite at equivalent doses
  • 6 times the oxidising capacity of chlorine
  • Actually improves the taste and smell of water
  • Effective at low concentrations (4PPM) and over a wide pH range
  • Biodegrades in the environment
  • Does not generate harmful by-products
