Sourcing Sodium Hydroxymethanesulphonate

Unread postby Hobbylover » Wed Oct 09, 2013 9:39 am

It's been tough time for so many hobbyist & fish keepers in Mumbai dealing with Chloramine issue. Some managed to deal with it but some couldn't & still not. Its fact that HYPO can never remove chlorine & thus we need to relay on different alternative.

While searching when we came to know about -Sodium Hydroxymethaesulphonate; we tried best to find each & every source & even found one exporter...but like his tag of business- He only exports so not so positive response from him.


I'm not sure if hobbyist from other corners also face the same & in that case if you came to know anyone dealing with it pls let me know

Are you referring to Sodium Hydroxymethanesulfinate ? If yes, then this is an industrial compound used primarily as a bleaching agent. If I remember correctly, BASF makes this compound as part of its leather chemical range. But it must have a trade name, which is what you can use to buy. If you are in Mumbai, please contact the BASF office - its just behind Satyam cinema (opp the Passport office).

Please do read about the compound before using it.

as far as i know, the best method is to store tap water in a separate pot and keep it moving (pump, or air pump). after 1 day all chlorine is evaporated...no chemicals at all.
after that day it is ready to use for your aquarium

Using this method since a long. Always changes aquarium water in the morning 6:00am. Water I used in aquarium was filled in storage tank in last evening. Never faced in any problem.

May be Delhi Municipality not adding chloramine but in Mumbai it does. Well chloramine has its own advantage but it certainly produce big issues for fish keepers.
