Disinfecting drinking water remains a challenge in the 21st century and has only become more difficult with the growing world population. Despite many ways to disinfect water, only two methods provide a measurable residual – chlorine and chlorine dioxide. In particular, chlorine dioxide provides many advantages over chlorine.
Disinfecting water is very important for preventing infections in a hospital.
There are two disinfection processes hospitals must consider: shock disinfection of water distribution systems (cold, hot, and toilet flush water) and continual disinfection during hospital operation. In both cases, disinfection is critical, because hospitals shelter sick people with compromised immune systems.
The best disinfectant for treating hospital water is chlorine dioxide because chlorine dioxide provides a measurable residual and is very effective against bacteria, protozoa, viruses, and super bugs.
Disinfecting wastewater is a first line of defense against waterborne infections. Effluent disinfection with proper treatment is just one barrier in a multi-barrier approach for delivering clean drinking water.
Disinfecting swimming pools is critical for public pools and highly recommended for private pools. Without proper disinfection, water can carry bacteria and spread diseases caused by protozoa (single cell organisms) and fungi.
Lagoon disinfection becomes critical when coliform counts exceed regulatory values prior to lagoon discharge.
With growing requirements for wastewater treatment, disinfecting lagoon effluent may soon become a mandatory step.
