you know that MMS has been used in the treatment of municipal water for more than 70
Did you know that Chlorine Dioxide has been used within our
Municipal Water supplies for over 60 years?
Chlorine dioxide has been
used within our municipal drinking water supplies in the USA and much of Europe for a good part of the last 60
years. The compound chlorine dioxide has been firmly cemented now as a failsafe water sterilization alternative
to the well known chlorine molecule - better known as the raw component of pool chlorine and mustard gas. As time
goes on, chlorine is being actively phased out and replaced with the much more effective chlorine dioxide
As time goes
on, chlorine is being removed from our drinking water supplies around the world due to the ever increasing health
implications of this chemical. Chlorine is well known for breaking down into powerful carcinogens, with the main
ones being trihalomethanes (THMs). Additionally, other elements such as iodine, bromine, fluorine, as well as other
halogens are also being discovered to have many deleterious health consequences - hence forth
being removed one by one. The compound chlorine
dioxide breaks down harmlessly into inert substances within
a period of 2 - 3 hours, and just as importantly DOES
NOT form THMs.
In the USA, there is a piece of legislation called the
"Safe Water Drinking Act", in which has dictated many amendments and positive changes to the water requirements that US
citizens have been subjected to over the past 20 years. This amended piece of legislation requires that
chlorine dioxide is to be used preferentially over
the more commonly used chlorine, and that over time chlorine will be completely phased out. This will obviously assist us in two major ways - being
that there will be no harmful breakdown products as there is with chlorine, as well as being much more
effective at killing pathogens than chlorine is.
Chlorine Dioxide (MMS) is lethal against virtually all water bourne contaminants, and actively
Substances - Potential carcinogens such as iron, odors and certain aromatics, cyanides in waste water, manganese, 3,
4-benzopyrene, as well as a host of dyes found in water as a result of plant matter, chlorophyll, and also
Contaminants - Chlorine dioxide completely
sterilizes and hence forth eliminates contaminants such as viruses, botulism, chloera, cryptosporidium,
e. coli and Guardia.
Advantages over Chemical Treatment
Chlorine Dioxide (MMS) cannot break down
into Trihalomethanes (THMs) as chlorine
will, and will not lead to the creation of bromochloromethane and chloroform as
Chlorine Dioxide (MMS) finds it impossible
to chemically react with ammonia, any type of compounds that are nitrogenous in nature,
or to form precursors to form dangerous chloroform
derivatives as chlorine will.
