The market is primarily driven by its use in swimming pools, hot tub water and spas. It is used in the swimming pools to kill thriving micro organisms which pose a threat to human health and also to prevent contamination.
Strong solutions of calcium hypochlorite are used to disinfect and sanitize pool sides, pool bottom, diving boards, decks, ladders and other surfaces. It is also extensively used to treat waste water and disinfect sewages. It is commonly used as a bleaching agent and also finds application as industrial sanitizer. Hence another important application of calcium hypochlorite is in the municipal water treatment plants.
Calcium hypochlorite is preferred over chlorine liquid/gas and liquid bleach in water treatment application. It is also very effective for treating wells, ponds, lakes, controlling and removing algae in reservoirs, water bodies filters and other water treatment equipments. Calcium hypochlorite in tablet form is also used in potable water treatment applications.
