For RV and Marine Water Systems
3R PUROGENE is a 2% solution of stabilized chlorine dioxide, ClO2 (contains no free chlorine).
Chlorine dioxide is recognized safe for drinking water treatment for more than
It is EPA registered for use in drinking water.
Unlike some water treatments that take hours to work and leave a bad after-taste, 3R
PUROGENE makes water fresh the moment it enters the container, from a drinking glass
to a plastic, metal, or fiberglass storage tank. 3R PUROGENE is non-toxic and
biodegradable, presenting no harm to the environment or the user.
One ounce of 3R PUROGENE will purify thirty (30) gallons of drinking water, as well as
control the build-up of slime and odor-causing bacteria in any drinking water system in RV
units, campers, trailers, and boats.
Water treatment to control the build-up of slime and odor-causing bacteria and enhance the
taste of stored drinking water. Drinking water should be treated at a rate of 1 fl oz (2
tablespoons) of 3R PUROGENE per 30 gallons of water (5 ppm ClO2 concentration). This
treatment will provide bacteria growth control, fresh taste and odor control to the water.
Treat each new addition of drinking water to the freshwater tank at the ratio of 1 fl oz (2
tablespoons) of 3R PUROGENE per 30 gallons of drinking water. Treat as often as
necessary to maintain the fresh taste and odor control.
Disinfecting the drinking water system (50 ppm ClO2 concentration): Place 1/3 fl oz
(2 teaspoons) of 3R PUROGENE per gallon of water tank capacity (example: 30-gallon
tank x 1/3 = 10 fl oz of 3R PUROGENE) into a clean plastic or glass container. To this add
1/2 tsp of Citric Acid Activator Crystals (lemon juice may be used, the same amount) per
an ounce of Purogene (4 ounces citric acid/quart Purogene) and let it stand for 5 minutes.
DO NOT breathe the fumes! Pour the sanitizing solution into the water tank and fill the
tank with potable water. Turn on the water pump and drain a small amount of water from
each of the faucets including hot water faucets so that the sanitizing solution gets into the
entire system. Then refill the tank with potable water to replace drawn off solution. Let the
system full of sanitizing solution stand for at least 1 hour. After the hour, drain the tank
and refill with potable water treated with 5 ppm of ClO2 as described above. Draw off
some water from all faucets including the water heater tank to purge the sanitizing
solution. To maintain the tank, repeat this procedure as often as necessary.
Note: Citric acid crystals are added at the rate of 4 ounces per quart of Purogene.
Example: 100-gallon tank = 32 ounces of Purogene + 4 ounces of Citric Acid Crystals
1 tablespoon = 3 teaspoons, 1 ounce = 2 tablespoons
CAUTION: 3R PUROGENE SHOULD BE STORED IN A COOL, DARK PLACE
