Great opportunity!
Publication: Chemical Guru Robert Lowry Explains Recent Changes to His Chemistry Method Dear Mr. Robert Lowry, your information about sodium hypochlorite (NaClO) that adjusts the pH of the water in the range of water to swimming pools is completely mistaken from the chemical point of view and can be considered a FAKE NEWS! The stoichiometry presented does not represent reality in the aqueous environment, where there are no chemicals! There are ions! The chemical stoichiometry presented in the publication does not occur in its entirety, because only a part of the HClO is decomposed by UV and any scientific bibliographical reference will indicate that after the use of NaClO it is necessary to make the injection of substance with acidic characteristics for reduction of the pH , HCl (hydrochloric acid) or carbon dioxide (CO 2) are generally used. For the decomposition of HClO requires UV radiation of 235 nm (UVC - 200 nm to 290 nm), this radiation range has the largest part retained by the ozone layer, as a result of which, despite the sunlight, the HClO decomposes the largest part will be preserved for the disinfection process. I have several scientific bibliographical references at your disposal on the subject, see https://denr.sd.gov/des/dw/PDF/Swimming%20Pool%20Management%20Manual.pdf., from 1995, page 13 item 2.
