Secondary Disinfection

Secondary disinfection is becoming a crucial part of the potable water treatment process. It is often a necessary step to help mitigate potentially harmful microbial growth and waterborne pathogens, such as Legionella. Chemtex’s secondary disinfection program uses the most innovative treatment strategies to maintain the quality of your domestic or potable water systems.


Your Chemtex representative will make sure you understand the options that are available and design a secondary disinfection program to fit your system and your budget. There are three main chemical options: chlorine, chlorine dioxide, and monochloramines. All three are acceptable solutions to the problem of Legionella and other water-borne organisms. All of these options require automation and monitoring to safely and effectively administer the disinfection chemicals. Because there are many automated feeds systems to choose from, your Chemtex water treatment expert will research the best and most cost-effective application and to fit your facilities’ needs.
