What is Liquid Lithium

The Safest, Most Stable and Most Effective Pool & Spa Sanitiser Available on the Market

SPA Liquid Lithium Melbourne

The Only Lithium Hypochlorite Available in the World

Liquid Lithium (100 gpl of available chlorine as Lithium Hypochlorite)  is now the only form of Lithium Hypochlorite available anywhere in the world.

The old solid product, which was the sanitizer of choice for spas, is no longer available since most lithium is now being used for the battery manufacture.

Liquid Lithium is the most stable sanitizer at spa temperatures, and in fact performs at a superior level compared with the former solid form of Lithium Hypochlorite.

About Bond Chemicals Australia 2

Liquid Lithium will save you lots of Water!

Using Liquid Lithium instead of Dichlor in your spa will lead to significant water savings each year.

This is due to the fact that Dichlor spas require regular draining (every 2 months is recommended) to control the amount of Cyanuric Acid in your spa water. This can mean thousands of litres of water wasted each year, which is not good for either your wallet or the environment.

If this draining is not done, spa water quality can deteriorate rapidly leading to the issues of cloudy water and algal growth. More seriously it can lead to infections such as Folliculitis, which is caused by bacteria in spa water entering the hair follicles in a person’s skin. So regular draining of your spa becomes essential when using Dichlor.

On the other hand, Liquid Lithium water can be maintained for at least 12 months or more since it does not suffer from this issue.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Liquid Lithium?

Liquid Lithium is a solution of Lithium Hypochlorite containing 100 gpl of available chlorine as Lithium Hypochlorite.

Do I need a special Lithium Test Strip?

No, any brand of test strip that measures Free and/or Available Chlorine will be suitable.

How do I dose Liquid Lithium?

The conservative approach is to follow the instructions on the back of the container.

Alternatively, follow the article on the Bond website “Liquid Lithium – Simple Dosing Instructions“. You can operate your spa continually by dosing LL to obtain a reading of 3-4 ppm of free chlorine, and Super Chlorinating weekly.

Why use Liquid Lithium?

  1. Most stable and effective sanitiser available for use in heated spas.
  2. Will not damage spa pumps, heaters and other metallic spa components.
  3. Will not damage fiberglass and acrylic spa components.
  4. Easiest to use – simply measure then pour in.
  5. Minimal impact on pH, alkalinity, and hardness which means less adjustment and cost for these additional chemicals. Greatly simplifies your spa water management.
  6. No need to dump spa water due to cyanuric acid build-up.
  7. Improved chance of retaining manufacturer’s warranty – Liquid Lithium is the gentlest sanitiser on the market.

Why can't I get chlorine reading when I first dose with Liquid Lithium?

When you treat water for the first time with a chlorine sanitiser, you may find it difficult to achieve a free chlorine reading.

Fresh water is not always completely “fresh”. It may contain dissolved vegetable matter, animal and bird droppings, minerals such as iron and manganese, or cyanuric acid as an additive in pool water preparation.

All of these “contaminants” will consume your sanitiser chlorine from your first dosage. The APVMA has prescribed an “Initial Start-up Shock” which has been based on impurities in average Australian water, however, many pool or spa water sources require additional sanitiser to satisfy the chlorine demand of the “contaminants”.  Once the “contaminant” demand has been satisfied, it will be possible to obtain a free chlorine reading.

On the other hand, water containing too much chlorine may bleach the colour from the test strip which will also prevent you from getting a reading.

Can I mix Liquid Lithium with Other Sanitisers?

See article “Use of Chlorine with other Sanitising Systems” on the Bond website
