Chlorination Pumps

Chlorination Systems are a very useful and practical way to handle a wide variety of water quality problems.  Chlorine is an oxidant, meaning it can chemically change the molecular structure of many impurities.  Often times, the molecular structure of the newly formed impurity is easier to remove from the water supply.   An excellent example of the oxidation process is the oxidation of iron.  When chlorine in water interacts with dissolved iron, it alters it from a ferrous (fe+2) to a ferric (fe+3) state.  The ferrous iron, sometimes called a clear water iron, cannot be easily filtered out of water; however, the ferric iron, sometimes called red water iron can be easily filtered out.  Other impurities in the water are also affected by the oxidation principal of chlorine.
