How to Disinfect Drinking Water by AquaClear® Calcium Hypochlorite
In order to make safe and healthy drinking water in emergency, we shall prepare some comparatively clean water, some bottle or container, filter the water if possible to make sure there is no visible insects, tree leaves, debris.
Add and dissolve one heaping teaspoon of high-test granular AquaClear® Calcium Hypochlorite (approximately ¼ ounce) for each two gallons of water, or 5 milliliters (approximately 7 grams) per 7.5 liters of water. The mixture will produce a stock chlorine solution of approximately 500 milligrams per liter, since the AquaClear® Calcium Hypochlorite has available chlorine equal to 70 percent of its weight. To disinfect water, add the chlorine solution in the ratio of one part of chlorine solution to each 100 parts of water to be treated. This is roughly equal to adding 1 pint (16 ounces) of stock chlorine to each 12.5 gallons of water or (approximately ½ liter to 50 liters of water) to be disinfected. To remove any objectionable chlorine odor, aerate the disinfected water by pouring it back and forth from one clean container to another. Keep it for a while, then you are able to enjoy a cup of clear and safe water.
