Chloramine T







Chloramine-T Product


Chloramine-T (n-chloro-para-toluene sulfonamide sodium salt) is a excellent choice for the control and elimination of bacterial gill disease, body fungi and bacterial infections. It has some effect on Flukes in clean water conditions such as hospital tanks and quarentine tanks.


N-chloro tosylamide sodium salt, sold as chloramine-T, is a N-chlorinated and N-deprotonated sulfonamide used as a biocide and a mild disinfectant.

Chloramine-T functions by slowly breaking down to hypochlorous acid, with the release of oxygen and chlorine. The active ingredient is p-toluene sulfonamide.

Safe when dosed correctly.

Bio-filtration MUST be bypassed during dosing. For ornamental pond use ONLY, can not be used on food fish.

As with most treatments, it is advisable to by-pass the filter during treatments, although nitrifying bacteria seem to be fairly tolerant of of this treatment. However it is a wise precaution to turn the filter off for 3-4 hours while treatments are in progress.


When using Do not allow it to come into contact with metal surfaces as toxic compounds can be formed. You should also wear a particle mask and goggles when handling to prevent injury to skin or eyes.

It should NOT be used as a high dose dip. Its chemical action will cause serious damage to fish.

Turn off any UV lamps when using any pond or tank treatments, and add extra aeration during treatment.

The breakdown of chloramine T is speeded up in sunlight, so treatments are best carried out evenings or on cloudy days.

Toxicity is greatly increased in soft acidic water-only use the low does.

Aerate the water vigorously during treatment.

Ponds should be cleaned and vacuumed prior to treatment in order to reduce free organics that would affect treatment efficacy.

Dosing Guide

Chloramine-T Product

Note: Water hardness, pH and temperature need to be considered when calculating a dosage for chloramine T; hard water and high pH is associated with a wider margin of safety.


Treatment Procedure:

Dissolve the appropriate amount of Chloramine-T in a plastic container of deionized water, making sure it is well mixed. Then disperse evenly over a large are of the pond surface so that spots of high concentration are avoided. After 4 hours, perform a 25-50% partial water change. Be sure to add dechlorinator to the new water. Repeat treatment every 1-2 days for up to 4 times if needed.

For treatment of an individual koi, remove it from the pond and place it into a large plastic container of pond water. Use an air stone and pump to provide adequate aeration. Add the appropriate amount of chemical to the water and mix thoroughly. After 4 hours, remove the fish and return it to the pond. Repeat every 1-2 days for up to 4 times.
