ClO2 has been used since 1920 in the industrial sector for bleaching paper, since 1943 it has been introduced in water to make it drinkable.

Chlorine dioxide has a neutral pH (it does not corrode like the traditional system of sodium chlorite and hydrochloric acid).

  • it also eliminates legionella and biofilm
  • it does not have the typical smell of chlorine, indeed in the pools it eliminates the smell
  • Chlorine dioxide eliminates much more effectively than traditional chlorine, bacteria, viruses, spores, etc. or eliminates what chlorine leaves
  • The sporicidal and virucidal effect of chlorine dioxide is very high compared to an equal concentration of chlorine
  • Chlorine dioxide does not react with ammonium NH4 + or ammonium binders, unlike chlorine which creates amines that have a negative effect for sanitizing drinking water
  • Using chlorine dioxide you prevents the formation of unwanted and harmful substances such as halogen hydrocarbons (Trihanomethani)
  • Unlike chlorine, chlorine dioxide has a germ elimination rate that increases with increasing pH value
