I have read the two posts I can find on this forum R.E. chlorine dioxide, but they didn't give me an answer really as to if I should go ahead and use the stuff in my pool.
I have a friend who owns a Chemical Manufactiring plant, the same place where I get my 12% manufactured.
He has been making Chlorine Dioxide solution for a water treatment company who recently failed to pay for the order, so he has offered me 200 litres for free if I want it seeing as its the festive season n all. He advised me he reckons the shelf life with this stuff is 3months while kept in the container in the dark.
To all you chemically minded far more intelligent people then myself, is its safe to use this in my pool for the next few months? I have a CYA level of approx 40ppm (waiting for kit to arrive to verify)
I know from reading the other posts it is not confirmed if CYA sheilds it during the day so would I need to try and add sodium hypo separately at a very minimum level to keep a residual?
Thoughts and input all greatly valued and very appreciated.
