So, at the source to be sterilized, and the ability to inhibit the growth of bacteria in the water to keep the system, it becomes a critical aspect of safe drinking water.
The most commonly used means of sterilization is chlorination. Typically, the chlorine or chlorine dioxide into water to form hypochlorous acid and hypochlorite. They have superior oxidizing ability to kill many bacteria. Chlorine, chlorine dioxide, hypochlorous acid, hypochlorite, are not stable. In the light, heat and other conditions, may be further converted to the hydrochloride, hydrochloric acid, chlorine will form small amounts of other compounds.
In the tap water will leave little hypochlorous acid and hypochlorite, which is accomplished by the bacteria. In other words, tap water requires a certain "free chlorine" exist in order to ensure the safety of tap water in the course of transmission. "Chlorine" that are discussed in this article refers to hypochlorous acid and hypochlorite.
Since sterilization, naturally there will be some toxicity. A few Several epidemiological survey, it seems that high chlorine water may have an impact on health.
