Supa Chlor is the most sophisticated water conditioner in the world, it is the only product that is manufactured to recognize one of the primary problems associated with town water.
That is hydrated lime, lime is used to buffer the pH of town water world wide, and is one of the least understood toxins in the Aquarium. Lime can be linked to a whole range of diseases, primarily fungal infections, the most common ailment to effect ornamental fish.
This toxin is removed by chelation of the Calcium molecule which allows the hydroxide ion to become water by being attracted to hydrogen in water (Lime =Calcium Hydroxide converts to Sodium) This conversion is done with a bound phosphate, which is then left over to be used as plant fertilizer, this phosphate will not adversely effect aquarium water and is a benefit to plants and fish.
EDTA is the most commonly used remover of toxic metals in normal Aquarium Water Conditioners but is exhausted because it is only moderately effective with Lime.

Because Supa Chlor has a Calcium specific chelatant, the EDTA is more capable of removing the metals it is more efficient at countering, Zinc, Copper ( often present in rainwater) Ferric Oxide, Aluminium, Fluoride and Iron (present in town water and bore water). As well as the abilities already mentioned Supa Chlor can also remove Ammonia that can be present in town water (in the form of Chloramine) or Ammonia present in aquariums.

It does this by encapsulating Quartinary Ammonia after removing Chlorine and then allowing it to aerate from the aquarium, this also happens with Ammonia biologically created in aquariums. All this and it is also one of the most powerful Chlorine Neutralisers available, chelating chlorine at a dose rate of 5 mls per 200 litres.
Benefit to Plants because Supa Chlor removes Hydrated Lime from town water by utilizing a chelating phosphate (that will not cause algal problems), this phosphate then becomes a safe.
