This “bible” of drinking water chlorination details the dangers and benefits of chlorination. Presented are the precise quantities of chlorine required for successful disinfection without risking health, as well as guidelines for knowing when to chlorinate (and when not to). When the goal is safe and clean drinking water, you can’t be armed with enough knowledge to ensure you hit that mark!
Details on Why You Should Disinfect
This book defines and illustrates water treatment processes such as storage, sedimentation, and sand filtration, and how each will reduce the content of disease-causing organisms in water. Exposed though, is the reality that these processes will not leave your water completely free of such bacteria.
Disinfection, when applied and controlled properly, is the most practical and effective means of removing such organisms. This book details exactly how to disinfect water, quantities of chemicals required per liter of water. Structured and engaging, this is the definitive manual on water disinfection.
Methods of disinfection
Boiling water may be effective as a method of disinfection, but it is not practicable for large quantities. Sunlight can also act as a natural method of disinfection, but it is difficult to control and manage. For these reasons, chemical disinfectants (especially chlorine and chlorine compounds) are used. Iodine may also be used as a disinfectant, but it is usually more expensive than chlorine compounds.
Chlorine compounds will destroy disease-causing organisms quickly — usually after 30 minutes. They are widely used and are relatively inexpensive. If carefully applied, chlorine has the advantage that a measurable residual of chlorine in solution can be maintained in the water supply. This residual provides further potential for disinfection and is also an important indicator of successful application.
