Dilute as table above specifies to either 100 ppm solution for a 10-minute exposure time or to 50 ppm solution for a 20-minute exposure time.

ANTIMICROBIAL TREATMENT FOR POULTRY DRINKING WATER. This product may be used at up to 5 ppm to control microorganisms in drinking water intended for poultry. Dilute to 5 ppm or use directly in system with automatic, on-demand injection system metered to produce an end concentration of 5 ppm. Note: application specifics may vary subject to metering system, frequency of replenishment, and the overall capacity of drinking container.

ANTIMICROBIAL APPLICATIONS FOR NON-POTABLE WATER SYSTEMS IN HORTICULTURAL SETTINGS: This product may be used to control and reduce microbial populations in non-potable water used with cut flowers in order to minimize microbial transfer from water to flower in order to maintain/maximize the freshness of cut flowers and to extend their shelf life.

For initial or remedial treatment in cases of significant build-ups of this organic material, begin with a 500 ppm solution for each 1,000 gallons or cooling or fountain water capacity. Then add 10 gallons of the 500 ppm solution to achieve a residual concentration of chlorine dioxide of approximately 5 ppm. Circulate the treated fluid in normal system operation. Repeat daily until desired results are achieved. For continuous or periodic treatment, begin with a 500 ppm solution for each 1,000 gallons of cooling or fountain water, adding one gallon of the 500 ppm solution to achieve a residual concentration of chlorine dioxide of approximately 0.5 ppm. Circulate water in normal system operation.
