HOME > The Trouble With Nitrite

Our Message
Sodium nitrite blends are a standard offering among water treatment companies. However, treatment chemicals are available that are more effective than nitrite and have none of the drawbacks.

Nitrite treatment is a poor choice for closed systems because it:

  • Is an environmental toxin.
  • Is aggressive to copper and brass.
  • Hardens rubber seals and gaskets.
  • Is food for microbes that cause fouling.
  • Raises conductivity, promoting corrosion.
  • Forms abrasive crystals at evaporation sites.
