In this post, I show you how to easily make your own diluted sodium chlorite to use when making pool water (ch0rine di0xode s0lution). You will save over 95% making this at home instead of buying the chl0rine di0xide kit on Amazon.

Why Make Pool Water?

Head over to my main Pool Water page to learn about why you should start making pool water, which is code for ch0rine di0xode s0lution (misspellings intentional to evade cens0rship).

Here's my easy recipe for How to Make Pool Water.

For those of you who haven't been following me, this has been the single biggest revolution in my health in my entire life. This combined with drinking silica water. Go and read my latest post about My Biohacking Breakthrough.

I'm still amazed what a difference this has made in my health, and it's just water!

I think sometimes people don't believe me how profound of an impact this makes. Which is why I am writing a book. I think once you understand why this works, you will realize how necessary it is.

Why Make Your Own Diluted Sodium Chlorite?

Why would you want to make your own diluted sodium chlorite, since you can easily buy the kit on Amazon?

A few reasons: (1) it's a heck of a lot cheaper (2) it's super easy to make and (3) you can use this to make sodium chlorite water (pool water with only sodium chlorite), which is what I recommend

Let me go over the benefits in depth...

It's A Lot Cheaper

You save over 95% by making your own diluted sodium chlorite and diluted hydrochloric acid instead of buying the chl0rine di0xide kit on Amazon.

The chl0rine di0xide kit on Amazon costs $55. It contains 2 4-ounce bottles – one diluted sodium chlorite (Part A) and one diluted hydrochloric acid (Part B).

Chl0rine di0xide kit on Amazon

So each bottle costs $27.50. Which works out to be $6.88 per ounce.

You can buy a pound of sodium chlorite flakes on Amazon for $30. So that's $1.88 per ounce.

This diluted sodium chlorite recipe makes 29 ounces (850 ml).

It uses 280 grams (about 10 ounces) of the 80% (undiluted) sodium chlorite, which means it costs $18.80 to make a batch of 29 ounces.

That works out to 65 cents per ounce.

So you save almost 90% by making diluted sodium chlorite yourself.

You can make the diluted hydrochloric acid yourself as well, and save a lot. I will post another recipe showing you how to make that.

You can buy hydrochloric for only 78 cents per ounce. When diluted, it costs only $1.33 to make a 12 ounce batch. Which is only 11 cents per ounce.

So when you make your own chl0rine di0xide kit, instead of buying it only, it costs you only:

4 ounces diluted sodium chlorite: $2.60  
4 ounces diluted hydrochloric acid: $0.44

A whopping total of $3.04.

Just over $3, you guys! Compared to $55.

That's a savings of $51.95 – or 96%.

Note: If you're just starting out with pool water, you can go ahead and buy the kit on Amazon because it's easy and it's still very cheap to use.

How Much You Save Making Your Own Sodium Chlorite and Hydrochloric Acid

Here's the math on what it costs to use the kit, for my nerd friends out there who, like me, enjoy knowing the details:

There are 4 ounces in each bottle in the kit. 4 oz = 118 ml. You need 10 ml of each to make a batch of pool water in the jar, which makes about 12 ounces (1.5 cups) of CDS (chl0rine di0xide solution, or pool water).

12 ounces = 355 ml.

I take 30 ml of the CDS in a liter of water per day, so each batch of pool water lasts me about 11 days.  Which means I use about 2.7 batches of pool water per month.

So bottom line... you can make 11.8 batches of pool water with one chl0rine di0xide kit.

$55 divided by 11.8 = $4.66 per batch of pool water.

I am making 2.7 batches per month, so using the kit, I'm spending $12.58 on my pool water each month.

And, if I dilute the sodium chlorite and hydrochloric acid myself, which I am going to start doing, I am only spending 25 cents on each batch of pool water.

So that's 68 cents per month.

A savings of over 95%!

Do you understand now why THEY (the DS) don't want you to know about this? LOL! It literally costs pennies to transform your health.

It's So Easy to Make

To make diluted sodium chlorite, all you have to do is put the flakes in a bowl or measuring cup, add the purified water, and stir.

That's literally it. It could not be easier.

You Can Use This to Make Sodium Chlorite Water

Go and read my post about how to make Sodium Chlorite Water: Easy Pool Water with Sodium Chlorite Only (For Kids & Pets).

In that post, I explain why I don't give my kids and pets pool water the way we drink it (30 ml of CDS in a liter of water which is kept cool in the fridge or cooler all day).

That is way too complicated for kids. How can you chase them around all day with a cooler.

How would you give a dog pool water that has to be kept cold – when he drinks out of a bowl that's left out all day?

Also, the pool water tastes like VERY CLEAN water, and some kids don't like it. My kids don't. They notice when I give it to them.

It's much easier to give them sodium chlorite water. They can't tell the difference.

Also, kids and pets have much higher amounts of stomach acid, so they are going to benefit from drinking plain sodium chlorite water.

It will mix with the hydrochloric acid in their stomach and do as nature intended. I'm still floored at how perfectly God designed us!

That said, if your child is very sick, for example, cancer or autism or food allergies, or even a cold or flu, and/or you know they have low levels of stomach acid, I would give them the pool water.

How to Make Diluted Sodium Chlorite (With Pictures)

This is so easy, guys...

You can jump down to the printable recipe below, but first let me walk you through the steps with pictures...

  1. Using a digital scale, measure the sodium chlorite flakes in a glass or plastic container. Do not use metal.

2. Add purified (distilled, spring or filtered) water.

3. Stir with a wooden or plastic spoon. Not metal!

It can take up to 30 minutes for all the flakes to completely dissolve. Be patient.

5. Transfer to an amber mason jar and store out away from sunlight and heat.

6. You can transfer some to your small bottles from the chl0rine di0xide kit. That way it's easy to use when you make your pool water.

Recipe Notes

You only need 2 ingredients for this recipe: sodium chlorite flakes and purified water.

You can buy sodium chlorite flakes on Amazon.

For water, use either distilled water or spring water (available at the grocery store,) or you can use your own filtered water.

If you use home-filtered water, be sure to use a filter that removes fluoride. Here's my post on  the Best Fluoride Filters That Filter Fluoride from Your Water.

Only use wooden, glass or plastic for the spoon and container. Do not use metal.

If you don't have a digital scale, you can use metric measuring spoons and cups, or convert the metric measurements to ounces.
