An Examination of the Relative Impact of Common Potable Water Disinfectants

Gas & Water # 2006 Washington DC

Disinfectants are commonly added to potable water to control bacteria, viruses, protozoa, algae and fungi which can potentially lead to waterborne diseases. The three most common disinfectants used for maintaining a disinfectant residual in North America are chlorine, chloramines and chlorine dioxide. While these disinfectants are all oxidants, their unique characteristics can result in a significantly different impact on the performance of different plumbing system components. In this paper, the chemistry and characteristics of the different oxidants is discussed in the context of oxidative degradation of plumbing system components.
