What are Aquatabs Granules?
- Aquatabs Granules are comprised of 55% Sodium Dichloroisocyanurate (NaDCC Dihydrate)
- They are recommended for use in treating drinking water for human consumption
- Aquatabs Granules rapidly release a measured quantity of chlorine in a safe and effective manner
- 1Kg will treat 110,000 litres of water at 5ppm/5mgL (550,000 litres at 1ppm/1mg/l)
Do Aquatabs Granules conform to Internationally recognised standards and specifications?
The following standards and specifications relate to the use of sodium dichloroisocyanurate (NaDCC), the
active ingredient used in Aquatabs granules, as a drinking water disinfectant safe for human consumption
including by infants and pregnant women.
NSF/ANSI Standard 60
NSF International is an independent testing Institution for the Water Industry. The NSF/ANSI Standard 60
is a certification system for water treatment products. The sodium dichloroisocyanurate Dihydrate (NaDCC
Dihydrate) used in Aquatabs granules is certified by NSF International to the NSF/ANSI Standard 60.
Aquatabs granules are composed of 100% NaDCC Dihydrate.
In 2000 the European Union produced a standard for the use of anhydrous NaDCC for treatment of water
intended for human consumption. In particular, this standard includes limits on heavy metals permissible in
NaDCC for use as a drinking water disinfectant. Independent testing of various NaDCC producers shows that
some sources do not meet the heavy metals limits of this European Standard. The NaDCC used in Aquatabs
conforms to these limits.
The reason for producing this document is to lay out existing and published standards and specifications for
NaDCC Dihydrate as a drinking water disinfectant, conscious of the fact that there are sources of NaDCC that
do not meet these requirements and, therefore, may not be suitable for human consumption.
