Thanks for your question! Using the Calculator is easy, all you need to do is set at “calculate PPM” then plug in your amounts of water and tablets, and toggle until you reach the desired concentration. For example, if you enter 1 tablets-grams and 5 gal. gallons, you will get 5 PPM. I personally like to purify my water at 5 PPM. This is the first concentration where the water starts to turn yellow. The PPM will go down over a short period of time and return to clear. Here is the detailed purification info:

Our Safrax Chlorine Dioxide is a highly effective disinfectant commonly used for water treatment to ensure its safety and potability. It provides powerful protection against bacteria, viruses, and other harmful microorganisms that may be present in water sources.

For home use, chlorine dioxide can be applied to treat tap water or well water, adding an extra layer of defense against waterborne contaminants. This helps eliminate potential health risks and improves the overall quality of water consumed by households.

On farms, chlorine dioxide plays a critical role in water purification for various applications, including livestock drinking water, irrigation systems, and maintaining sanitary conditions. It minimizes the spread of waterborne diseases among animals and ensures a safe water supply for farm operations.

Dosage:

The recommended dosage depends on the water source and its level of contamination.

The required ppm of chlorine dioxide may vary depending on the level of contamination in the water. The more “dirty” the water, such as water from ponds, lakes, rivers, or water with algae, the higher ppm is needed to effectively treat it.Generally, the final concentration of chlorine dioxide should range from 0.5 to a maximum of 10 parts per million (ppm).

A dosage of 8 to 10 ppm is commonly recommended for treating animal drinking water during periods of virus risk or when there is a high prevalence of diseases on the farm. This higher concentration of chlorine dioxide helps to effectively mitigate the spread of viruses and diseases, providing an additional layer of protection for the animals.



It is important to note that water with a chlorine dioxide concentration above 5 ppm may have a slight “chlorine-like taste”. However, this higher concentration ensures effective elimination of bacteria and viruses, providing a safe and sanitized water source. While the taste may be slightly different, you can have peace of mind knowing that the water is free from harmful microorganisms.

Here is a calculator for custom measurements: https://safrax.com/calculator/

(Set to “calculate ppm” and then plug in tablet/water measurements until correct concentration is achieved)

To achieve 1 ppm, add 1 tablet per 26 gallons (100 liters) of water.

To achieve 2 ppm, add 2 tablets per 26 gallons (100 liters) of water.

To achieve 3 ppm, add 3 tablets per 26 gallons (100 liters) of water.

To achieve 4 ppm, add 4 tablets per 26 gallons (100 liters) of water.

To achieve 5 ppm, add 5 tablets per 26 gallons (100 liters) of water.

To achieve 6 ppm, add 6 tablets per 26 gallons (100 liters) of water.

To achieve 7 ppm, add 7 tablets per 26 gallons (100 liters) of water.

To achieve 8 ppm, add 8 tablets per 26 gallons (100 liters) of water.

To achieve 9 ppm, add 9 tablets per 26 gallons (100 liters) of water.

To achieve 10 ppm, add 10 tablets per 26 gallons (100 liters) of water.
