Neutralises Chlorine Instantly
Release the biological potential of your growing media and plant nutrients with Neutralise.

Neutralise instantly dechlorinates tap water, protecting beneficial microbes from the harmful effects of both chlorine and chloramine. It's ideal for conditioning tap water before adding microbial products such as Biosys. It can also be used with soil, coco and hydroponic systems as a pre-treatment for irrigation water and nutrient solutions.

Treats Chlorine and Chloramine
Ideal for organic gardeners
Allows beneficial microbes to flourish
Pre-treatment for hydroponic nutrient solutions

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.

How much total chlorine will neutralise treat?
Neutralise is formulated to deal with 0.6mg/l of total chlorine (free chlorine and chloramine) when used at 1ml per 20L, or if using the dropper bottle 1 drop per L. Most tap water will have 0.5mg/L total chlorine or less, so Neutralise will deal with the majority of situations. If you have more that 0.6mg/L total chlorine then you can use a double dose, 2 drops or 1 ml per 10L.

How will Neutralise affect my water or nutrient solution?
Neutralise is ideal for treating water before adding microbial products or liquid nutrients, and is suitable for use with any other brand of nutrient or additive. Neutralise will not affect the final conductivity, but is mildly acidic and can reduce the pH of soft tap water by 0.1. If you have moderate or hard tap water you will not notice any effect on pH.
