WaterGuard

Population Services International (PSI)

WaterGuard (also know as Sur’Eau in French-speaking regions) is a Liquid Chlorine (Sodium hypochlorite) solution, marketed as an easy-to-use disinfectant for water. This disinfectant chemical is relatively safe and does not require a complex storage system, unlike traditional gas chlorine systems. Disinfecting water with WaterGuard chlorine can reduce bacterial loads and incidences of water-borne diarrheal diseases.
