When treating your water with MINLOX,
pathogens will be eliminated and diseases will be minimized.
MINLOX uses ORP (Oxidation Reduction Potential) to measure the effectiveness of a treatment. The higher the ORP, the more oxidation is taking place. Items can be slightly oxidized, moderately oxidized or extremely oxidized (sterilized). Most items are slightly or moderately oxidized.
WHO (World Health Organization) developed an ORP chart as the guideline for treating water. Once your application has been treated with MINLOX, then it is necessary to measure the effectiveness of the treatment. Take the probe of the ORP meter and stick it in the water that has been treated. The digital reading will be in millivolts (mV). For example:
For fish/shellfish farms, 350 - 400 mV is recommended. For swimming pools, 450 - 475 mV is recommended. For drinking water, 700+ mV is recommended.
ORP meters come in different shapes and prices. Shop on Amazon.com for model preferred.
The World Health Organization developed the ORP Chart in 1971. It is a helpful guideline when treating water/wastewater.
Because MINLOX is organically certified, it is very safe once added to water. ORP digital readings are much more accurate than using litmus paper or chlorine testing kits.
Water being treated can be extremely, moderately or slightly contaminated.
8 gallons of MINLOX concentrate treats 1 million gallons of slightly contaminated water. It may take 12 gallons to treat moderately contaminated water and 16 gallons to treat extremely contaminated water.
The more contamination, the more MINLOX will be needed.
3 oz. of MINLOX concentrate to one gallon of clean water, makes a MINLOX solution. This solution will measure about 700 mV.
If need less mV, then put in 1 or 2 oz. of MINLOX to a gallon of clean water.
If need more mV, then put in 4+ oz. of MINLOX to a gallon of clean water.
It's part judgement and part science to get the right mix for your application. Start by putting a little and then add more as needed for successful water treatments.
ORP meter reading will always tell where you're at with water treatment.
If ORP reading is below desired mV, add more MINLOX until desired reading is attained.
The residual of MINLOX last longer than chlorine. The shelf-life of MINLOX is 6+ months when stored properly in a shaded area. Keep out of direct sunlight when storing.
