Ensure you use Accu-Tabs to retain drinking water rating NSF61
Copycat Accu-Tabs are widely available; however chlorine feeders not using the branded product, including those customers with BIPW chlorinators, are not compliant with NSF 61 (drinking water standard).
According to NSF International, “Chlorine feeders are required to be used with and only with the manufacturer’s recommended use chemicals and these chemicals need to comply with the requirements of NSF/ANSI Standard 60.”
Accu-Tabs are a specific approved chemical component (68% calcium hypochlorite) that are specifically designed to erode at the appropriate rate.
The same goes for Accu-Tabs in pools. “Chlorine feeders that are certified to NSF/ANSI Standard 50 for use in pool, spa, and recreational water facilities are evaluated and certified for use with-and only with- the manufacturer’s recommended use chemicals,” according to NSF International.
