CLAIMS

1. A composition, comprising:

a water-soluble polymeric encapsulant; and

a water chlorinating agent encapsulated in the water soluble polymer encapsulant.

2. The composition of claim 1, the water chlorinating agent comprising an alkali metal dichloroisocyanurate salt.

3. The composition of claim 1, the water chlorinating agent comprising sodium dichloroisocyanurate.

4. The composition of claim 1, formulated in a unit or pod dosage form.

5. The composition of claim 1, the water-soluble polymeric encapsulant being a water* soluble film.

6. The composition of claim 1, the water-soluble polymeric encapsulant being a flexible water- soluble film.

7. The composition of claim 1, the water-soluble polymeric encapsulant being a self-supporting water-soluble film.

8. The composition of claim 1, the water chlorinating agent being stable or inert with respect to the water-soluble polymeric encapsulant.

9. The composition of claim 1, the water-soluble polymeric encapsulant rendering the encapsulated water chlorinating agent stable or inert.

10. The composition of claim 1, further comprising one or more of: an active compound, a disinfectant, an antimicrobial, a sporocide, a stabilizing agent, and a colorant.

11. The composition of claim 1 , the water-soluble polymeric encapsulant being configured to provide timed release of the encapsulated water chlorinating agent over a period of about 1 minute to about 4 weeks.

12. The composition of claim 1, the water-soluble polymeric encapsulant being configured to provide time-delayed release of the encapsulated water chlorinating agent with a release time beginning from about 1 minute to about 4 weeks.

13. The composition of claim 1, the water-soluble polymeric encapsulant being formed into a plurality of films, at least a first film in the plurality of films encapsulating the water chlorinating agent, and a second film in the plurality of films encapsulating nothing, or one or more of the water chlorinating agent, an active compound, a disinfectant, an antimicrobial, a sporocide, a stabilizing agent, and a colorant.

14. The composition of claim 13, the plurality of films being configured for sequential dissolution.

15. The composition of claim 1, the water-soluble polymeric encapsulant being formed into a plurality of films, at least a first film in the plurality of films encapsulating the water chlorinating agent, and a second film in the plurality of films encapsulating one or more of the water chlorinating agent, an active compound, a disinfectant, an antimicrobial, a sporocide, a stabilizing agent, and a colorant, the plurality of films being configured for sequential dissolution effective to sequentially release an

encapsulant in each of the plurality of films.

16. The composition of claim 1, the water-soluble polymeric encapsulant comprising one or more polymers, plasticizers, emulsifiers, bonding agents, bulking agents, fillers, and stabilizing agents.

17. The composition of claim 1, the composition having a density greater than 1 gram per cc.

18. The composition of claim 1, the composition having a density less than 1 gram per cc. 19. The composition of claim 1, formed in a unit dose configuration effective to enclose one or more hollow pocket that give the composition an effective density less than 1 gram per cc.

20. A method, comprising:

providing a composition, comprising:

a water-soluble polymeric encapsulant; and

a water chlorinating agent encapsulated in the water soluble polymer encapsulant; and

chlorinating a portion of water by contacting the composition to the portion of water effective to cause at least partial dissolution of the water-soluble polymeric encapsulant effective to release the encapsulated water chlorinating agent to the portion of water.

21. The method of claim 20, comprising providing the composition according to any of claims 1-19.

22. A method, comprising:

providing a water-soluble polymeric encapsulant;

providing a water chlorinating agent; and

encapsulating the water chlorinating agent in the water soluble polymer encapsulant.

23. The method of claim 22, comprising encapsulating the water chlorinating agent in the water soluble polymer encapsulant to form the composition according to any of claims 1-19.

24. A kit, comprising:

a composition, comprising:

a water-soluble polymeric encapsulant; and

a water chlorinating agent encapsulated in the water soluble polymer encapsulant; and instructions, the instructions directing a user to chlorinate a portion of water by contacting the composition to the portion of water effective to cause at least partial dissolution of the water- soluble polymeric encapsulant effective to release the encapsulated water chlorinating agent to the portion of water.

25. The kit of claim 24, comprising the composition according to any of claims 1-19.
