non-stabilized chlorine

Recommended Posts

Hello,

Does anyone know where/how to get hold of non-stabilized chlorine products (other than Javel)?

I don't want to raise the CYA level in the water - or at least I want it to be under my control.

Many thanks for any info.

That's quite Bizzar..;;

You want to raise your chlorine level, without raising your CYN stabilzer level... OK no problem.

But you don't want to use Javel (sodium hypochlorite) why for heavens sake not? Its straight chlorine and its cheap as chips available in ANY brico or Farm supply.

Calcium Hypochlorite is another equivalent but not good for hard water areas, also not as easy to find or as cheap.

Both do the job ..; so what's the problem again????

I've probably not expressed myself properly.

I'd love to use Javel, but unfortunately I'm having some trouble locating 'Extrait de Javel' (9.6% - 30degrees) and so want something else available in periods of 'Javel drought'.

I found a small quantity in Mr Brico - but much of it was out of date. I've also tried Castorama, Bricorama and Bricomarche without any joy.

I hadn't thought of farm suppliers, but I don't think there are many of those near here (Var) - most growing stuff around here is olives or vines (hic), although we had an interesting visit a while ago from flocks of sheep on their annual 'transhumance'.

So - the hunt continues, but in the meanwhile, its a case of Ca(ClO)2 (which I bought from a shop in St Raphael, and yes, it's expensive - and the bloke gave me dire warnings about its life-threatening properties if not used correctly)

Cheers
