Calcium hypochlorite powder capsules (60 x 400mg) Water purification capsules Product Description
What is Calcium hypochlorite?
- Disinfects water and kills a wide range of pathogens
- Safe and easy to use
- Better shelf life and higher available chlorine (65%)
Calcium hypochlorite is a chemical compound of chlorine with the formula Ca(ClO)2. It is widely used to purify and disinfect water; and is often used in small-scale water purification systems and swimming pools.
When this product is used as specified, it is known to kill a wide range of pathogens in water including bacteria, viruses, fungus, spores and protozoans. If not eliminated, these micro-organisms are capable of causing water-borne diseases like dysentery, diarrhoea and cholera. In swimming pools, these germs can cause earache and respiratory infections.
How does it work? When dissolved in water, calcium hypochlorite releases hypochlorite ion, which may get converted into hypochlorous acid (this conversion depends on the pH of the water.) Both hypochlorite ion and hypochlorous acid contribute to the amount of ‘free available chlorine’, responsible for killing germs. Our product has 65% available chlorine. Calcium hypochlorite capsules: Multi-purpose water purification agent
Calcium chlorite is commonly used to sanitize and purify water in a wide range of settings, for example in:
- Swimming pools
- Hotels and spas
- Small water purification systems
- Fishing ponds and livestock places
In addition, calcium hypochlorite capsules are easy to carry when going on outdoor excursions like camping, hiking or boating. If you live in an area where natural calamities like floods, hurricanes and earthquakes are common, having a supply of calcium hypochlorite capsules in your emergency kit might be a life-saver. These natural disasters disrupt as well as contaminate water supplies, making water unfit to use. Calcium chlorite capsules can also be useful in situations where you might not even have access to bottled water. Long shelf life and easy to use
Calcium hypochlorite is far more stable than store-bought or laundry bleach, often stored by preppers and survivalists as a part of their emergency kits. However, liquid bleach tends to degrade within just a few months, which means its strength and efficacy is impacted over time.
Calcium hypochlorite, on the other hand, can be easily stored for longer periods. It doesn’t degrade as fast as liquid bleach and can stay strong for at least 2 years, if stored under right environmental conditions. It must always be stored at a room temperature and not exposed to moisture, extreme temperatures and direct sunlight. Calcium hypochlorite also has higher available chlorine than liquid bleach, thus more effective in treating contaminated water. Calcium hypochlorite capsules from SANUS Water Purifier

The product also contains salt and small amounts of chloride, hydroxide and carbonate. Our product is different from pool shock granules and doesn’t have the same binders. How to use the product?
One capsule of calcium hypochlorite powder can purify approximately 20 litres of water. Once it is dissolved in water, allow the mixture to sit for at least 30 minutes before using. One 400-mg capsule can destroy most of the micro-organisms present in the water that could potentially cause disease. Why use calcium hypochlorite capsules from SANUS Water Purifier?

We have taken extreme care in selecting high quality material for our capsules so that they can safely enclose the ingredients for a longer time without causing any damage or degradation. Poor quality material can make capsules brittle and fragile – eventually affecting the product’s quality, stability and shelf-life.
Always store calcium hypochlorite capsules in a dry, cool and well-aired area. Keep it away from heat, acid or moisture. The label has explicit instructions on how to use the product safely and effectively. For best outcomes, make sure you read and follow the directions carefully.
This product is provided in a HDPE bottle with gelatin capsules. The bottle is heat sealed and has a safety seal. Providing correct storage away from direct sunlight and heat (and preferably in a cool place) the shelf-life for this product unopened is 2 years. Once opened, we recommend use within 2 or 3 months. Given the hygroscopic nature of this product, and given we heat seal our bottles to ensure they are 100% airtight, the bottles can become slightly disfigured and the bottom and top may bulge.
This is no way reflects negatively upon the efficacy of the product and indeed proves the bottle is airtight. Once opened, or if stored in the refrigerator the bottle will return to its normal shape.
