2 Ca(ClO)2 + 2 CO2 → 2 CaCO3 + 2 Cl2 + O2
Calcium hypochlorite reacts with hydrochloric acid to form calcium chloride:
Ca(ClO)2 + 4 HCl → CaCl2 + 2 H2O + 2 Cl2
Q: What is Calcium hypochlorite used for?
A: Calcium hypochlorite is used for the disinfection of drinking water or swimming pool water. It is used as a sanitizer in outdoor swimming pools in combination with a cyanuric acid stabilizer, which reduces the loss of chlorine due to ultraviolet radiation. The calcium content hardens the water and tends to clog up some filters; hence, some products containing calcium hypochlorite also contain anti-scaling agents.
