For many of us, the word "chlorine" brings to mind thoughts of summertime and the cool, refreshing water of swimming pools. The chlorine we think of in connection with summer fun is usually the chemical compound calcium hypochlorite
. Calcium hypochlorite is a white solid that is added in granular or tablet form to pool water to kill germs that can make swimmers sick. Used properly, by well-trained pool operators, this compound destroys germs that are capable of causing numerous health problems for pool users--diarrhea, swimmer's ear (a nasty earache) and various respiratory, skin and wound infections. Spa and hot tub waters are also disinfected with calcium hypochlorite--it's a chemical wonder that makes healthful water recreation possible. But there is much more to the story of this chlorine compound.
hlorine water disinfectants are public health champions, prolonging and improving life wherever they are used. Large water systems--those supplying tens or hundreds of millions of gallons of water per day--in the US and Canada use mostly chlorine gas (Cl2
) or sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl) to disinfect drinking water. Smaller water systems--those supplying less than about five million gallons per day--often use calcium hypochlorite. Calcium hypochlorite is easily transported and stored for long periods of time.
