Water Sanitation with Silver Hydrogen Peroxide

ALSTASAN SILVOX is well effective against water-borne microorganisms. The silver in hydrogen peroxide with its stabilizing and oligo-dynamic property helps in achieving long term effectiveness against any pathogen without altering the taste or smell of water. Being FDA approved for safe human consumption upto a concentration of 25 ppm, it serves as an effective potable water disinfectant.


Need for Water Sanitation


Water is critical for our survival, and it cannot be substituted, therefore its consumption or use must not endanger the health of animal and plant species.
Most waterborne diseases like typhoid, dysentery, cholera, enteritis, etc., are caused by microorganisms from faeces and urine. With the sources getting depleted, and agriculture requiring about 93% of the fresh water available, it’s important to conserve water. Only 0.5% of water available is fit for drinking purposes, therefore it must be well conditioned to avoid hygienic problems.
Swimming pools are a plethora of harmful organic by products released from swimmers by the combination of sweat, dandruff, and urine. Cooling towers provide an ideal environment for the growth and incubation of many organisms, including the Legionella bacteria.


Methods of Water Disinfection


Disinfection of water is very simple. Just add raw ALSTASAN SILVOX in potable water depending upon bacterial load. It is safe for human consumption till a concentration of 25ppm. Unlike chlorine,there is no need for de-chlorination after dosage. It does not alter the taste and smell of potable water.
For water tanks, a fair dilution of the product can be sprayed or circulated.

Conventional Water Sanitizers


Chlorination is the most common method of water sterilization. Comparatively cheaper, it is applied for the deactivation of most microorganisms. But it comes with a huge price of toxicity.
Ozonation is more effective and costlier than chlorination,but requires high maintenance. It also reduces the concentration of important metals like iron, manganese, etc., which form insoluble metal oxides, requiring post filtration.



  • Ozone is unsuitable for potable water due to its high toxicity.
  • High equipment cost for ozonators.
  • Ozone is less soluble in water therefore special mixing techniques are required.
  • Chlorine/ Hypochlorite alters the taste of water, and its reaction products are carcinogenic. It also has limited effect against cyst forming protozoa.
  • Chlorine requires de-chlorination with SMBS (Sodium Meta Bi Sulphite).
  • Chlorine is highly corrosive for metallurgy


  • Safely combats all pathogenic microorganisms
  • Does not change the taste or odour of drinking water
  • Non foaming in nature, hence it cleans and disinfects
  • Does not form harmful THMs on reacting with organic materials
  • Works in a wide range of pH and temperature
