Unlike water treatment by filtration or ultraviolet light, disinfection with mixed oxidants generated be the PA PURE® Electrolytic Water Purifier leaves a trace amount of chlorine in the treated water. The presence of this little bit of residual chlorine disinfectant after the appropriate wait time confirms treated water is suitable to drink and provides extended protection against potential recontamination.
In most cases, only one standard disinfectant dose from the PA PURE Electrolytic Water Purifier is needed to achieve the necessary levels of microbial inactivation*, leaving that small amount of residual chlorine behind. However, if Cryptosporidium is suspected, or your water appears cloudy/dirty and Giardia is a concern, then more than one dose may be required.
- If you suspect Cryptosporidium, or if your water appears cloudy/dirty and Giardia is a concern, use PA PURE® Chlorine Test Strips to check your water for chlorine residual before drinking
- Also for users who prefer visual confirmation of treatment efficacy in any type of water
