Summary and Implications
Chlorine concentrations of a novel generated germicidal compound (8000 ppm available chlorine) and pre (500 and 1000 ppm) and post dip (1000 and 2000 pm) made by dilutions with initial separate additive were very stable over 11, 20, and 42 day trials. Using different additives in pre and post dips (trial 2) or just post dips (trial 3) showed reduction in chlorine to 200 ppm within 24 hrs. This novel technology shows excellent chlorine stability over time (base solution) but also the importance of the additives and their potential effects on these concentrations.
