It is also known and sold in the koi industry as Bact-away and in general also sold as Tosylchloramide, Sodium Salt or Disifin.
It is a white powder and in water slowly breaks down to the disinfectant Hypochloride.
It is an algicide, bactericide, virucide, fungicide and germicide. It therefore can address almost all diseases common to koi as it attacks viruses, bacteria, fungus and some parasites including Costia, Chilodonella, White Spot and Trichodenia, and at higher dosages, even Fluke.
It does not stay active for very long and can be repeated within 24 hours. Although it is believed that nitrifying bacteria are fairly tolerant to Chloramine-T, it is advisable to bypass your filter, and all other rules applicable to treatments are applicable like putting your UV off and increase aeration.
