Hypochlorites (ClO-) are typically used as a bleaching agent for disinfecting solutions and for whitening materials. Sodium hypochlorite solution has commonly been used for pool water treatment as it is a readily available and inexpensive form of chlorine. The hypochlorite concentration needs to be monitored regularly as it is greatly affected by light, heat and pH, amongst other things.


Hanna supply a Chemical Test Kit suitable for measuring the concentration of hypochlorite in a variety of applications.
