Using ClO₂ On Tanks and Lines
STEP 1: Global Standard Cleaning Protocol
Determine total tank and line capacity to be sanitized and deodorized and how you will add your selected chlorine dioxide product to the tank system. Most ClO₂ in-place formats require that you first generate a ClO₂ fluid solution, prior to pouring it into the tank and line system opening.
ClO₂ can be generated in a standard 1 gallon container or bucket/pail. Once chlorine dioxide is generated, it must be ‘capped’ or put into the tank and line system as soon as possible.
Use pre-sized tablets as recommended by the Tank & Line Chart.
|Tank & Line Generation Table|
|Total Tank Capacity||Tablet Grams Required|
|5-10 Gallon||4 grams|
|10-20 Gallon||8 grams|
|55 Gallon||20 grams|
|110 Gallon||40 grams|
|240 Gallon||80 grams|
STEP 2: Refill Tank & Line System with ClO₂
Refill tank and line system with 20% of the total tank volume with water. Then add the required amount of ClO₂ liquid concentration.
STEP 3: Flush and Rinse
30 minutes later, flush and quick rinse the system. Leave CLO₂ in tank system overnight for aggressive and remedial issues. Longer Treatment Period = Better Results.
STEP 4: Solution Through Lines
Run the Solution through all the lines (faucet, shower and outlets) until tank is empty.
STEP 5: Additional Flush
The following rinse steps are not required but recommended. Refill the tanks with rinse water to approximately 20% of tank. Flush rinse water through all the faucets and outlets until water storage tank is empty.
Tanks and its dispensing lines is now cleaned and can be refilled for use or left empty for storage.
