For of wells or water systems, a 3% solution of household bleach is
used. For larger systems, sodium hypochlorite is more practical because lower rates can be used. The alkalinity
of the sodium hypochlorite solution also causes the precipitation of minerals
such as calcium carbonate, so that the shock chlorination is often accompanied
by a clogging effect. The precipitate also preserves bacteria, making this
practice somewhat less effective.
hypochlorite has been used for the disinfection of
drinking water. A concentration equivalent to about 1 liter of
household bleach per 4000 liters of water is used. The exact amount required
depends on the water chemistry, temperature, contact time, and presence or
absence of sediment. In large-scale applications, residual chlorine is measured
to titrate the proper dosing rate.
