Sodium hypochlorite is widely regarded as the best patio cleaner and moss remover on the market. Sodium hypochlorite is a chemical compound with the formula NaClO. It is composed of a sodium cation (Na+) and a hypochlorite anion (ClO−); it may also be viewed as the sodium salt of hypochlorous acid. When dissolved in water it is commonly known as bleach or liquid bleach. Sodium hypochlorite is practically and chemically distinct from chlorine. Sodium hypochlorite is frequently used as a disinfectant or a bleaching agent.
Sodium Hypochlorite Patio Cleaners are used for more stubborn stains as you need the EXTRA strength solution, which is 50% stronger than the heavy duty solution and may be diluted with up to 6 parts water and 1 part Sodium Hypochlorite 15%.

Unfortunately there is no such thing as a weed-free surface. If organic material is allowed to accumulate on a surface it will only be a matter of time before weeds and other plants begin to grow. Weeds grow on paving through the sand joints by using the sand as a base to begin. When using the sodium hypochlorite as a solution for weed control, pay additional care to the joints to ensure success. Sodium Hypochlorite Solution is regarded as one of the best patio cleaners because it will also control weeds and will deter re-colonisation for a period of weeks, even months.
Sodium Hypochlorite 15% is used for the routine control of bacteria and algae in swimming pools. For effective treatment ensure that the chlorine levels of the water are a level of 2-3mg/l (ppm). The levels must be maintained above 1.5mg/l (ppm) as a minimum. Once the chlorine has been applied the pH of the water must be adjusted to between 7.2 and 7.6 before use. We recommend these levels are routinely checked by using a pool water testing kit. When applying the Chlorine add at the point of best mixing, i.e. the water inlets and leave the filter running to ensure even distribution. All personal protective equipment must be used when handling this product.
