Neutralise Tap Water Dechlorinator
Neutralises Chlorine Instantly!
Neutralises and dechlorinates tap water instantly, protecting beneficial microbes from the harmful effects of both chlorine and chloramine. It's ideal for conditioning tap water before adding microbial products such as Biosys. It can also be used with soil, coco and hydroponic systems as a pre-treatment for irrigation water and nutrient solutions.
- Treats Chlorine and Chloramine
- Ideal for organic gardeners
- Allows beneficial microbes to flourish
- Pre-treatment for hydroponic nutrient solutions
Neutralise has been formulated to actively target the presence of chlorine and chloramine in tap water. Chlorine is a powerful disinfectant added to water supplies across the UK to kill potentially harmful bacteria. Chlorine alone in tap water can create some unwanted harmful by-products, so water companies also utilise a more stable version of chlorine known as chloramine. The procedure involves mixing ammonia into chlorinated water. Chloramine is far more persistent than chlorine alone, making it more effective at killing bacteria right to the point of drinking your glass of tap water, or watering your plants.
Chlorine compounds are very reactive, killing microbes by oxidation. When present in the water as chlorine and chloramine they will readily oxidise enzymes, proteins, bacteria, and other living microorganisms. Unfortunately, they do not distinguish between "bad biology" and beneficials, so chlorine and chloramine can potentially knock back the microbiology in your growing media that your plants rely on.
The active ingredient in Neutralise is concentrated Vitamin C, a totally safe ingredient for your soil and plants. When Neutralise is added to chlorinated water, the Vitamin C is rapidly oxidised by the chlorine and chloramine. In this process the chlorine compounds are reduced to chloride, which is harmless to microbes. Chloride is also a micronutrient, required by plants at very low levels.
Neutralise is very easy to use, a handy dropper is included, use 1 drop per 1ltr of water.
