Chlorine — Nature’s miracle

In the fight against the recent coronavirus pandemic, chlorine bleach has emerged as a true winner due to recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the World Health Organization (WHO). This powerful chlorine compound has a proven track record to safely remove both bacteria and viruses from surfaces and from the water. The CDC has stated “there is no evidence that Covid-19 can spread to people through the water used in pools, hot tubs or water playgrounds. Proper operation and disinfection of pools, hot tubs and water playgrounds should kill the virus that causes Covid-19.” In the pool industry, liquid chlorine, or sodium hypochlorite, has long been recognized as one of the most effective tools for achieving clear and sparkling algae free water. In more recent years, alternative sanitizers have been developed for those opposed to chemical use. But with the reality of Covid-19, the simplicity and relative cheapness of bleach use has caused it to fly off the shelves. the fight against the recent coronavirus pandemic, chlorine bleach has emerged as a true winner due to recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the World Health Organization (WHO).
