How to Use

The Activate™ 5000 Bleach Dilution System has been engineered specifically to meter and dispense 5.25% Sodium Hypochlorite NaOCl at a 10% (9:1) solution. The components within the sprayhead work in conjunction with the specially designed bottle plug and dip tube within the bleach cartridge to deliver the correct solution of bleach. If the sprayer or cartridges aHow to Use-step 1re obviously damaged or missing parts, do not use the system!

Step 1:

Fill the sprayer's empty water bottle with cool tap water, and then insert the sprayer’s tube down into the filled water bottle. Close the sprayer tab to lock the water bottle into place on the sprayer.

Remove the threaded plastic cap from the bleach cartridge. Do not puncture or tamper with the plug that is in the neck of the bleach cartridge. It must remain intact in order for the sprayer to dilute the bleach at the proper 10% dilution rate!

How to Use-step 6 and 7Step 6:

Refill the water bottle when empty.

Step 7:

Always re-prime the system when installing a new bleach cartridge.

Note that a safety feature ensures the sprayer will not function if either the bleach cartridge or the water bottle is empty.

Periodically test the sprayed bleach solution for available chlorine with a high-level chlorine test strip. Always store your bleach system and additional bleach cartridges at room temperature (50o – 72o).


Note: The sprayer mixes the bleach with the water to a 10% (1 part bleach to 9 parts water) solution (minimum 5,000 ppm available chlorine), so the water cartridge will have to be filled 9 times before the bleach cartridge is emptied.
