Sterilene is 200 times more effective at removing the environment for coliform bacteria in wells and pipelines. It is a sodium based, granular chlorine that does not require a control of pH using vinegar or acid to make it effective. Sterilene is far more effective than any other standard chlorine (liquid sodium hypochlorite or calcium hypochlorite) at a competitive price. This means a lower cost, no premixing, and far less failures.
Sterilene is non-oxidative which means,
Ships Class 55, noncorrosive and non-oxidative. It is granular product but mixes easily, even in cold water with no maximum saturation point. Sterilene does not have a shelf life which means the product remains stable over time.
Use Sterilene as you would regular chlorine, but do not pour the granules directly into a well. Mix 2 capfuls into 4-5 gal of water, then pour into the well. Recirculate with the pump, if desired. IF a failure occurs, the chlorine may not have physically reached the location of bacteria toward the bottom of the well. Follow directions on the label for 2 volumes of the well.
