... , 1999. Watt, 2002) Where can chlorine be found? Chlorine can be found on many different locations all over the world. Chlorine is always found in compounds, because it is a very reactive element. Chlorine can usually be found bond to sodium (Na ), or in kitchen salt (sodium chloride; NaCl). Most chlorine can be found dissolved in seas and salty lakes. Large quantities of chlorine can be found in the ground as rock salts or halite. The properties of chlorine Chlorine (Cl 2) ...

... and from time to time flushes them away to drain. Ion exchangers are often used for water softening. When an ion exchanger is applied for water softening, it will replace the calcium and magnesium ions in the water with other ions, for instance sodium or potassium. The exchanger ions are added to the ion exchanger reservoir as sodium and potassium salts (NaCl and KCl). 2.5 How long does a water softener last? A good water softener will last many years. Softeners that were supplied in the 1980's may still work ...5. Chlorine dioxide as a disinfectant

In the last few years this reaction has also been used to produce large quantities of chlorine dioxide. Sodium chlorate (NaClO 3) was used instead of potassium chlorate. 2NaClO 3+4HCl ® 2ClO 2+Cl 2+2NaCl+2H 2 O What are the characteristics of chlorine dioxide? Chlorine dioxide (ClO 2) is a synthetic, green-yellowish gas with a chlorine-like, irritating odor ...6. Information on pure water

... pollutions and pathogenic micro-organisms are constantly added to the water. Therefore the water has to maintain a residual disinfectant concentration. The disinfectant must be easily traced and measured and should be safe to use. Disinfection methods for swimming pool water In some countries, sodium hypochlorite is used for both oxidation and disinfection of swimming pools. When it is added to water, sodium hypochlorite increases the pH value. It is better to use chlorine as a disinfectant and an oxidizer at a pH value of 6, 5. Often, acid is added ...8.
