Chlorine dioxide (ClO2) presents a safe, effective water treatment option. Advantages include:
  • It attacks and destroys both free pathogens and the biofilm. It prevents and removes biofilm formations.
  • It has a far more effective disinfecting action than identical concentrations of chlorine and is independent from pH in the 4 pH to 10 pH range.
  • has a greater sustained-release effect for longer-lasting disinfection.
  • does not form selective effects such as toxic chloramines or haloforms (THM) and does not affect the smell or taste of the water.
  • It has considerably less environmental impact compared to other treatment options.
