Chlorine dioxide is an effective method of disinfection as an alternative for chlorination. It is a very good oxidant & it addresses some of the concerns with disinfection by-products. With the continuous tightening of regulations surrounding trihalomethanes (THM'S), chlorine dioxide is growing in popularity. There are some key advantages in favour of chlorine dioxide:
Disinfection power is pH independant
Long residual effect
No reaction with ammonia or ammonium
No formation of chorophenols and other intense odour compounds which can be produced in water chlorination.
No formation of THMs and other chlorinated hydrocarbons
