Bleach safe? YES
    #3185354 - 09/27/04 06:54 AM (12 years, 4 months ago)

I just remembered a thread talking about bleach being safe or not compared to peroxide. That last typhoon reminded me that it is. The proper way to treat water after water is turned back on after a major disaster is to add 2 tablespoons of chlorine bleach per gallon of water to make safe drinking water. As a matter of a fact, it's the instruction given prior to every typhoon, it seems like.

Two tablespoons?!?!

Is this for drinking water?

If so, that is absolutely incorrect, and I am pretty sure that a solution of 2 tablespoons per gallon would be poisonous.

I have always heard 2 drops per liter; 8 drops per gallon or a little over 1/8 of a teaspoon per gallon.

Here, straight from FEMA

In some situations, boiling may not be an option. The alternative is to treat the water chemically. Plain household chlorine bleach may be used. Be sure the label states that hypochlorite is the only active ingredient. Bleach containing soap or fragrances is not acceptable.  With an eye dropper, add 8 drops of bleach per gallon of water (16 if the water is cloudy), stir and let stand. After 30 minutes the water should taste and smell of chlorine. At this time it can be used. If the taste and smell (and appearance in the case of cloudy water) has not changed, add another dose and let stand. If after one half hour the water does not have a chlorine smell, do not use it.

A couple of drops is all we ever used to clean water for drinking, iodine is preferable to bleach BTW. None of these will render chemical contamination safe this is only for bacterial contamination. Now A city nearby that gets water from us has higher concentrations which maybe 1/8 teaspoon range but I don't drink it (way to nasty)! Yes great link 4sure!
