Q:

Water Purification Guide
Resolved

I appreciate the Safrax Water Purification Guide.
However I’m unsure of how to interpret the results.

What does ‘Amount of Tablets/Gr’ mean? What is ‘Gr’?
Results for ‘Qty of Gallons’ is in ‘Gr’? Can’t be grams.
Huge pet peeve of mine running across cryptic abbreviations.

Also, is there any danger of over purifying or exceeding recommended dosages?
I’m assuming that you would dilute with water if there is a faint chlorine odor or taste.

We utilize tablets measured in grams (Gr). While each tablet is intended to weigh 1 gram, there can be a variance of up to 5%. Especially when multiple tablets are being used, it’s advisable to measure by grams to achieve a more precise ppm (parts per million) concentration.

About exceeding dosage for water purifying: If you detect a faint chlorine odor or taste, it usually indicates that the concentration is higher than what is ideal for the intended use. In such cases, diluting with water is the right approach. Depending on the situation, in emergency scenarios, having a slight taste reminiscent of a “chlorine pool” might actually be reassuring. It can indicate that not all of the chlorine dioxide has been utilized in neutralizing contaminants, suggesting the water is safer. Conversely, it is also possible in highly contaminated situations that the water will rapidly consume all the chlorine dioxide, leaving no residual taste within minutes. This underscores the importance of ensuring the water isn’t excessively dirty to begin with.

Yes, I would like to know that, too! Who is manning the website?

Gr stands for grams I believe

There’s info on the Safrax fb page. Also read through comments.
Tablets/Gram is simply the same category.
One tablet = one gram.

(Yes, tablet = 1 Gram, just refers to how many grams are being placed into the volume of water to create the desired PPM)

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.

Sorry I am still confused. I want to clean up my well. I have no idea how deep it is or how much water is in it.
Which product do I use? And how many tablets do I drop in the well? How often do I do this?
Thank you
