Chloramine Removal Products

With many municipal water systems switching over to Chloramines, your present chlorine removal agent can become obsolete overnight! Many areas of the country have plans to switch, or have already switched to chloramines, due to federal guidelines relating to water sanitization. There is no notification requirement regarding any impending switchover, though some water companies have begun educating customers.

 Chloramines are very stable antiseptics that act more slowly than chlorine but remain active for longer in water. Chloramines are generally prepared from chlorine and ammonia (one-quarter to one-half as much ammonia as chlorine) or ammoniac salts.
Chloramines are much more stable (lasting weeks) than chlorine and can provide a reservoir or bank of chlorine making it a more reliable sanitizer while also reducing the presence of suspected carcinogenic or mutagenic disinfection oxidative byproducts known as Trihalomethanes (THMs) .

Conventional Chlorine removers will break the bond between Chlorine and Ammonia leaving free Ammonia. Ammonia is very harmful to gill tissue and damage is cumulitive throughout the life of the fish. While biological processes (filtration) can reduce the free  ammonia levels in your aqaurium (if using a conventional chlorine removal product), your fish are still exposed to these high levels of  ammonia for the duration of the nitrification process of ammonia-nitrite-nitrate. To insure the lowest exposure levels for your fish choose a water conditioner specifically designed to remove chloramines and not just one which breaks the bond of Chlorine/Ammonia. If the product does not say “Removes Ammonia” then it is probably only breaking the bond and not removing Chloramines-Ammonia. Also remember, Chloramine sanitized water cannot be aerated or aged to provide fish safe levels as is sometimes done with Chlorine treated water.

natural defense system that protects fish from disease,
aids in osmoregulation and reduces stress caused
by sudden changes in the environment. FritzGuard®

Chlorine Removal Products:
Conventional chlorine removers. These economically neutralize chlorine at 1 drop per gallon of tap water but does not remove Ammonia. If your water contains chloramines we recommend using Ultimate or ChlorAmX. If you only have conventional chlorine in your tap water then use our #CRSTC - Sodium thiosulfate crystals or liquid #CR-1G as an economical Chlorine remover. Use our Stress Coat for chlorine removal and to neutralize heavy metals and add aloe vera for slime coat replacement on fish. We also carry a crystal form of water conditioner - Start Right which will treat 4320 gallons, removes chlorine, stimulates natural slime growth, neutralizes heavy metals, adds beneficial electrolytes.

Sodium Thiosulfate: The most economical choice for conventional chlorine removal. There is a wide range of dosage recommendations for ST chlorine removal. We base our dosage 3.5 ppm ST / 1 ppm chlorine. Tap water can contain between 0.2 and up to 4 ppm as maximum recommended by US EPA. Most municipal water supplies contain between 0.5-2 ppm chlorine. To be sure use chlorine test kit to determine if you are using adequate ST to neutralize the amount of chlorine present in your water. Be aware that your water authority can change chlorine concentrations without alerting you, as long as they do not exceed EPA limits of 4 ppm. If your water contains chloramines then also take note that conventional chlorine removers such as ST will still break the bond of Chlorine and Ammonia but will leave free ammonia which is very harmful to livestock. Use a product such as CloAmX or Ultimate instead.

For large bodies of water such as ponds or central systems ST can be used directly in the water at a ratio of 13 gms/1000 gallons. For smaller systems or stand alone aquariums it is best to prepare a stock solution. We recommend a 16% stock ST solution which provides about 1 drop per gallon chlorine removal.
