Aside from drinking water and domestic water usage, pool water is another area where regular cleaning and treatment are needed. Chlorine is also used for treating water for domestic usage as well as drinking. Just like drinking water, pool water must be clean and safe for swimmers. Chlorine has been used as a pool cleaning chemical for decades as it kills bacteria, algae, and so on. However, excessive levels of chlorine in water can be detrimental to health, whether for domestic usage or in swimming pools. Therefore, it is important to neutralize its levels using chlorine neutralizers.
At Cannon Water Technology, we offer various types of chlorine neutralizers which help in water dechlorination or reducing the amounts of chlorine. We offer pool water chlorine neutralizing product as well as those that make water potable to drink and use. These are offered in the form of granules which need to be mixed with water in the required proportion to form a solution.
How is Chlorine Neutralized?
If there is excess chlorine in water, be it for domestic use or in pools, it must be removed. High amounts of chlorine increases the pH value of water, causes skin and eye irritation, itching, breathing difficulties, respiratory tract infections, and other health concerns. Usually, boiling the water reduces the amount of chlorine; however, that is not a practical solution, and not possible for pools. So, chlorine neutralizers are used. Before using them, there are some water tests you must do so that you know the chemical formulation as well as the amount of chlorine present in a given water sample. Also, the level of permissible chlorine would vary with the amount of water.
When neutralizing chlorine in water for domestic usage and drinking, it must be done at the water supply level where it is treated. Our neutralizers such as Vita-D-Chlor neutralize the chloramines and chlorine in water without affecting the levels of dissolved oxygen. These granules must be mixed with warm water in proportion as mentioned on the pack. The solution is fed into the tank with a liquid feeding device. Just to get an idea, 1 gm of these granules can dechlorinate or neutralize about 100 gallons of water.

Q. Why is it necessary to neutralize chlorine?
A: Chlorine is commonly used as a disinfectant in water treatment systems and swimming pools to kill bacteria and other microorganisms. However, chlorine can leave an unpleasant taste and odor in the water. In some cases, excessive exposure to chlorine can also irritate the skin, eyes, and respiratory system. Neutralizing chlorine helps improve the quality of water and makes it safer for various applications.
Q: Where is a chlorine neutralizer typically used?
A: Chlorine neutralizers are used in various settings, including residential homes, swimming pools, spas, hot tubs, and water treatment facilities. They are also employed in industries such as food and beverage processing, where chlorine removal is necessary to maintain product quality.
Q: How does a chlorine neutralizer work?
A: Chlorine neutralizers work by chemically reacting with chlorine molecules, either through oxidation or reduction processes. These reactions help break down and eliminate chlorine from the water, rendering it safe and free from chlorine's taste, odor, and potential adverse effects.
Q: What are the different types of chlorine neutralizers available?
A: There are different types of chlorine neutralizers available, including activated carbon filters, sodium bisulfite solutions, vitamin C (ascorbic acid) tablets or filters, and catalytic carbon filters. Each type has its own specific mechanism of action and application.
Q: Can a chlorine neutralizer remove other contaminants from water?
A: While chlorine neutralizers primarily focus on removing chlorine, some types of neutralizers, such as activated carbon filters, can also remove other contaminants like volatile organic compounds (VOCs), certain chemicals, and unpleasant odors.
Q: How do I choose the right chlorine neutralizer for my needs?
A: The choice of a chlorine neutralizer depends on factors such as the volume of water to be treated, the level of chlorine present, and the specific application. It's advisable to consult with water treatment professionals or review product specifications and recommendations to determine the most suitable chlorine neutralizer for your requirements.
Q: Can a chlorine neutralizer be used for chloramine removal?
A: Chloramine, a compound formed by combining chlorine and ammonia, requires a different type of neutralization process. While some chlorine neutralizers may have limited effectiveness against chloramines, it is recommended to use specific chloramine neutralizers or contact a water treatment professional for appropriate solutions.
