Lithium hypochlorite is an algicide, disinfectant, fungicide and food contact surface sanitizer. Its primary pesticidal use is to control algae, bacteria and mildew in swimming pool water systems, hot tubs and spas; approximately 2,000,000 pounds of the active ingredient were used for this purpose in 1989. It also is used to sanitize food and cheese processing plant equipment, dairies, and eating establishment equipment and utensils. Lithium hypochlorite is formulated as a ready-to-use liquid and a soluble solid concentrate. It is applied to swimming pool water using a skimmer basket, and to equipment or utensils by hand or through use of a dish washing machine. Lithium is an element that occurs naturally at low levels in food and drinking water.
