Chlorine Dioxide for Water Treatment
Pristine® Water Purification Systems represent a major breakthrough in water purification technology that brings the power of chlorine dioxide (ClO2) directly to you. Chlorine dioxide, a water purification treatment chemical, has been used to successfully treat municipal drinking water for over 50 years and is recognized as a proven, safe and effective drinking water treatment.
Pristine® Water Purification System is designed to be used as a temporary water treatment solution for hiking, camping, emergency preparedness and recreational holding tanks.
Pristine® Water Purification System is a 2-part system. The Pristine® package is made up of 2 solution bottles. When Part A and Part B are mixed together, the result is a solution of activated chlorine dioxide (ClO2). ClO2 treats viruses, bacteria, cysts/parasites, giardia, and cryptosporidium.
Water treated with chlorine and iodine is known to be harmful to your health. It can also create foul tastes and odours. Pristine®'s unique process eliminates all taste and odour, making it more palatable than boiled water or water treated with chlorine.
● Contains no iodine
● Leaves no after taste
● Improves the taste of heavily chlorinated water
● Improves the taste of well water and helps eliminate iron and manganese
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
1. How does Pristine® Water Purification System work?
When Pristine® Water Purification System Part A and Part B are mixed together, chlorine dioxide is activated and releases oxygen in a highly active form. This effectively treats viruses, bacteria, cysts/parasites, giardia, and cryptosporidium while enhancing the taste of water.
2. How safe is Pristine® Water Purification System?
Water treated with Pristine® Water Purification System is safe to drink on a recreational basis when used as directed. Some chemicals, like iodine, chlorine, and other halogens create potentially harmful by-products.
3. Can Pristine® Water Purification System be pre-mixed in a container other than the mixing cup provided?
Pristine® Water Purification System can be mixed in any clean container that is small enough to ensure Part A and Part B mix together thoroughly. Part A and Part B must be pre-mixed before adding it to the water. Pre-mixing Part A and Part B activates the chlorine dioxide and begins the release of oxygen that treats viruses, bacteria, cysts/parasites, giardia, and cryptosporidium. The mixture will turn bright yellow and give off a strong chlorine type odour as the chlorine dioxide activates. Only then is the Pristine® mixture ready to be added to the water.
