The ChlorKing products are just a big, commercial grade SWG's that uses high salinity and high current to produce a lot of chlorine gas. There's nothing here that's all that new....just bigger and higher power. Not sure I would ever want a system like that hooked up to a residential pool...
Quote taken from the thread Chlorine after cya bond is released With no cyanuric acid in the water, the pH does determine the percentage of hypochlorite vs. hypochlorous acid. The pKa of hypochlorous acid is about 7.53. 1÷(1+10^(7.53 – pH)) = hypochlorite percentage. For example...
No issues just the claims that chlorking uses hypochlourous acid instead of the chorine gas generated by SWG or that we just call it chlorine gas and ends up being hypochlorus and hypochlorite? Maybe im not getting it.
So we can call it either way depending on PH without cya, which is not the case for us. Then claims that hypochlorus acid is better is half the truth. Darn COVID, just making me look further down the rabbit hole.
It’s marketing nonsense. Hypochlorous only exists in solution at low pH and is not stable at high concentrations. I can make hypochlorous acid in a bucket - add bleach to the water and then drop the pH below 5. The problem is, hypochlorous acid will rapidly convert to chlorine gas which is more stable at low pH. This why you never add acid to bleach - it causes the hypochlorite to convert to hypochlorous acid which then converts to chlorine gas.
Every SWG operates the same way - the electrolytic cell generates chlorine gas at the anode and hydrogen gas at the cathode. The chlorine gas rapidly dissolves into the water and hydrates to form a mixture of HOCl/OCl- that is pH dependent and the hydrogen gas bubbles out of the return (hydrogen is not soluble in water). That’s it.
