Why does this matter?
Because FROG®’s unique technology combines chlorine and fresh minerals to kill bacteria 2 ways. You use less chlorine, and you get Cleaner, Clearer, Softer® water that’s Easier to maintain.
OK, but how does this work – and doesn’t chlorine work on its own?
Worthy questions, let’s dive in:
Chlorine’s superpower is killing bacteria. Here’s a bit of the science:
When chlorine is added to water, it forms a weak acid called hypochlorous acid. This acid is proficient at killing bacteria like salmonella and E. coli, and it also knocks out many viruses.
What makes hypochlorous acid lethal to microbes is its neutral electrical charge. Bacteria’s cell walls have a net negative charge and repel other negatively charged particles in the water.
Hypochlorous acid is neutral – it’s not negatively or positively charged therefore, it’s not only able to make contact with bacteria cells, but it also invades them.
Once it invades bacteria it wreaks havoc.
