1.6.10 Important warnings
Many users keep asking questions that indicate something has been misunderstood or done wrong. So here are some important warnings.
Do not use MMS and CDSplus components separately
Please never use one of the components alone with 2-component products (e.g. classic MMS or CDSplus)! Also, please never swallow the activation tablet with the CDSplus. It is used exclusively to activate the special liquid component supplied. This liquid component is not pure water!
Products with higher concentrations than 3,000 ppm or 0.3%.
Some suppliers offer CDS solutions with more than 0.3% or 3,000 ppm concentration. At much higher concentrations, the gas concentration above the liquid level in a bottle can reach explosive values. In addition, it is easy to get confused with the conversion to the application protocols with 3,000 ppm and apply too little or too much.
CDS/CDL products that are not pH neutral at 3,000 ppm
Also, many of these products advertised as CDS or CDL are not pH neutral at 3,000 ppm concentration and so you are really just buying a few drops of very expensive activated conventional MMS. According to the definition of Dr. Andreas Kalcker, the main property of CDS is precisely the pH neutrality of the chlorine dioxide solution at a concentration of approx. 3,000 ppm.
Do not produce CDS distillate yourself!
Please never make CDS distillate yourself according to the Andreas Kalcker movies in YouTube. Simply choosing the wrong hose material can cause the hoses to stick together. This creates an ever-increasing pressure, which can then lead to the vessels bursting. Other distillation methods (e.g. the refrigerator method with float glass) only produce a weak 300 ppm concentration and you then have to convert again for all protocols.
Activate a maximum of 30 drops of MMS at once
Never activate more than 30 drops of the classic MMS. Even if you need more, for example to disinfect a large rainwater cistern, activate a maximum of 30 drops and add these to the water to be disinfected. Then activate again another 30 drops and put them also into the water and so on. Always work in well ventilated areas for these quantities with more than 30 drops. So in stages you get better and safer to the goal than to activate everything at once.
In case of spillage always dilute with water
If you should have spilled activated classical MMS, then always rinse and clean it with much clear water, because it is pH-acidic. The same applies to a lesser extent to CDS/CDSplus solutions. CDS/CDSplus is pH neutral, but the chlorine dioxide could still have a slightly oxidizing and thus discoloring effect on fabrics and surfaces.
Other processes and formulations
There are also many other methods of producing chlorine dioxide, especially from two purely dry components. But as far as I know, these are approved for other technical applications and not for drinking water treatment in Germany.
Do not use industrial container sizes
In order to use chlorine dioxide products in industrial container sizes, you should have undergone extensive training in the handling of chlorine dioxide. The risk of explosion or the possibility of suffocation from cyanosis is simply very real with these large amounts of agents. The cost savings are not that great to take these risks.
DMSO brings everything in depth and decolorizes clothes
Also the handling of the active agent enhancer DMSO (dimethyl sulfoxide) should be done with caution. DMSO is a strong organic solvent, i.e. it decolorizes many substances. Whenever DMSO is spilled, it should be absorbed or washed off with plenty of water. DMSO can dissolve rubber (e.g. rubber gloves), but is not corrosive. DMSO brings not only chlorine dioxide, but everything into deeper tissues, including dirt. So always work cleanly in the application area.
