The organic nitrogen compounds found in urine and sweat are also possible precursors for chlorination by-products, such as THMs (Ueno et al., 1996).

11 Full Range of Treatments All-In-One Treatment Chlorine-Supporting Treatment Rapid Recovery Treatment Choosing the right treatment has been made Easy! Each treatment is “Custom Designed” to handle the specific demands of your application. Residential pools require less supplementary oxidants, while municipal pool treatments require higher levels to handle the higher demands. For those occasions where a little additional help is required, Truox offers easy to apply secondary treatments in the form of slow dissolving tablets, or rapid release granules for shock recovery. These products may be protected under U.S. Patent 6,,878,289 and other Patents Pending
