Trichloroisocyanuric Acid (TCCA) for drinking water chlorination

Usage: Trichloroisocyanuric Acid(TCCA) is white crystal powder, granular or tablets with stimulant smell of hypochloric acid. With strong bleaching and disinfection effects, TCCA is extensively adopted for civil sanitation, animal husbandry, plant protection, cotton, gunning, chemical fabrics, woolens, battery materials, organic synthesis industry, and laundry. Stabilised chlorine tablets (trichlor) are used very widely to chlorinate swimming pool water.
Applications: Trichloroisocyanuric Acid(TCCA) was used as a disinfection reagent in the transformation of benzophenone-3 in chlorinated water. It was also used in the synthesis of 2-halomethylene-3-oxoketoximes. It is used as a bleaching agent in the textile industry, a reagent in organic synthesis.Notes: Moisture sensitive. Store away from reducing agents, acids, bases, flammable substances, organic materials, light, water/ moisture.
Access to common chlorine generating products (HTH, NaDCC) is limited in Iraq and other Middle-Eastern contexts. Trichloroisocyanuric Acid(TCCA) is available however, marketed for use in swimming pools as 'clean pool 90'. The tablets are 200g, with available chlorine listed as 90% minimum. The dosage would need to be reduced considerably for, say a 10m3 water truck. My main concern, however, is whether this would be a suitable chemical for the chlorination of drinking water? To an untrained eye it looks similar to the Sodium dichloroisocyanurate (NaDCC) used in Aquatabs, but I'm unsure whether any of the bi-products might be hazardous in drinking water. As a slow release tablet the proposal would be to use this in a floating pot chlorinator. Any guidance would be very much appreciated.
Reviewed domestic and foreign TCCA production process, put forward for the domestic chlor-alkali enterprises to adopt (ie seed production process differential chloride production process and continuous circulation dichloroisocyanurate sodium chloride production process depth. TCCA (TCCA) is a highly effective disinfectant, bleach and chlorinating agent with the expanding range of applications of the product, the market demand at home and abroad on the rise, many new production facilities planned or under construction, there are Discussion is necessary to compare its main production process, in order to determine the appropriate optimum.
