One Drop vs. Chlorine
|A completely natural saturated ionic aqueous solution containing minerals including: Copper, Silver, Zinc, Aluminium and Gold. Completely nontoxic. One Drop replicates the way nature purifies water.||A common non-metallic element belonging to the halogens; best known as a heavy yellow irritating toxic gas; used to purify water and as a bleaching agent and disinfectant; occurs naturally only as a salt.|
|No special handling or storage required. No special packaging, no transport restrictions.||Must be handled and stored with care and under strict protocols. Special packaging needed for transportation especially by air.|
|Shelf Life of 5 years. Once treated water will remain safe to drink for up to 18 months without the need for re-treatment (provided that it is covered).||Shelf Life varies. Water must be re-treated if unused on a regular basis.|
|Proven to kill all known harmful water borne organisms. Effective against Algae, Bacteria, Spores, Cysts, Fungus, Protozoa and Entamoeba.||Proven to kill all known harmful water borne organisms. Effective against Algae, Bacteria, Spores, Cysts, Fungus, Protozoa and Entamoeba.|
|Helps to eliminate common disease such as: E-Coli, Cholera, Dysentery and Diarrhoea.||Helps to eliminate common diseases such as: E-coli, Cholera, Dysentery and Diarrhoea.|
|Conforms to (and exceeds) International Drinking Water Quality Standards including the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and SANS241 The South African National Standard for safe drinking water.||Conforms to (and exceeds) International Drinking Water Quality Standards including the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
When used on an industrial scale (water and sewerage treatment plants) no other chemicals are required to be used in the treatment process as One Drop is also a flocculent and an algaecide thus reducing the overall cost of water treatment.
|When used on an industrial scale (water and sewerage treatment plants) additional chemicals must be used including flocculent and an algaecide thereby increasing the cost of water treatment.|
|One Drop has a biocidal effect which at first use cleans the inside of water tanks and water pipes thereby helping to maintain (at no additional cost) a clean and healthy environment in which to store and through which to pump water.||Chlorine based products show no evidence of Biocidal effect in water tanks or water pipes. Piping and machinery will need regular maintenance.|
|One Drop eliminates Legionella virus in water trapped in shower pipes, shower heads and feed pipes.||Chlorine based products show no evidence of eliminating Legionella virus.|
|One Drop is completely safe for use as a water purifier and shows no harmful side effects in human beings or animals.||Chlorine, when used for water disinfectant chemically reacts with organic material and dangerous by-products like dioxin are produced. The harmful and detrimental accumulative effects from the continuous use of chlorine in water treatment are now well documented in respect of its carcinogenic and mutagenic effects when it combines with most organic matter. Human beings and animals are made up of organic matter.|
|The Carbon Footprint for One Drop is - ZERO!||The Carbon Footprint for Chlorine is - HIGH!
