WATA equipment allows the local production of a chlorine derivative called sodium hypochlorite. Sodium hypochlorite is currently produced in 85 countries. From the end of the 19th century to the present day, its production has increased from 35,000 tons to 44,000,000 tons. Certain chlorine derivatives used for water treatment can be dangerous, fortunately the sodium hypochlorite produced by WATA devices is less corrosive and is safe to manipulate with minimal training. Indeed, despite being unpleasant to ingest, it is not dangerous. The chlorine solution produced with WATA:
1) has a chlorine concentration four times (4x) lower than bleach
2) Furthermore, it nevertheless has a lower pH than bleach and is therefore more effective as a disinfectant.
