    Hypochlorous Acid, Keeping Drip Tables & Irrigation Systems Clean

    What is Hypochlorous Acid?

    Hypochlorous acid, also known as HClO and HOCl, is a weak acid solution, widely used in applications ranging from food processing facilities to hospital surgical units to keep things hygienic and kill pathogens and other harmful bacteria, etc.

    HClO is the strongest oxidizing and anti-microbial agent generated when chlorine gas dissolves in water.  Often used in a hypochlorous acid spray, HClO has been used since the first world war. It is a powerful non-toxic disinfectant and sanitizer. This proven formula has been shown to be much more effective than bleach as a biocide, fungicide, and viricide.

    Aside from these industrial applications, It's also very well suited to keeping mineral salts and biofilms from collecting. This is especially important for growing surfaces such as irrigation systems and tanks. Fortunately, Hypochlorous acid (HOCl-) is available in stable concentrates specifically for drip applications that can be injected directly into fertigation systems or added into hydroponics reservoirs

    Substances such as biofilms and other naturally occurring residues, if left unchecked in hydroponics systems, can lead to crop failures. In extreme circumstances, it can require irrigation system removal and replacement. Both are expensive prospects and important considerations for the professional as well as a residential grower.
