Neutralise has been formulated to actively target the presence of chlorine and chloramine in tap water. Chlorine is a powerful disinfectant added to water supplies all across the UK to kill potentially harmful bacteria. No doubt you will have smelt chlorine when running the tap or having a shower. Chlorine alone in tap water can create some unwanted harmful by-products, so water companies also utilise a more stable version of chlorine known as chloramine. The procedure involves mixing ammonia into chlorinated water. Chloramine is far more persistent than chlorine alone, making it more effective at killing bacteria right to the point of drinking your glass of tap water, or watering your plants. Stop Chlorine and Chloramine Killing Beneficial Biology! Chlorine compounds are very reactive, killing microbes by oxidation. When present in the water as chlorine and chloramine they will readily oxidise enzymes, proteins, bacteria and other living microorganisms. Unfortunately they do not distinguish between “bad biology” and beneficials, so chlorine and chloramine can potentially knock back the microbiology in your growing media that your plants rely on. The active ingredient in Neutralise is concentrated Vitamin C, a totally safe ingredient for your soil and plants. When Neutralise is added to chlorinated water, the Vitamin C is rapidly oxidised by the chlorine and chloramine. In this process the chlorine compounds are reduced to chloride, which is harmless to microbes. Chloride is also a micronutrient, required by plants at very low levels. Don't hold your garden back by using chlorinated water, allow it to thrive with Neutralise.
