21 / 52

What happens if NOT enough sanitizer is used and the concentration of a sanitizer solution is too low?

22 / 52

Both iodine and quats sanitizers need at least 30 seconds, and chlorine sanitizers need at least 7 seconds of contact with a surface to kill pathogens. What are these time specifications called?
