German term or phrase:Depotwirkung
The following sentence appears in an instructions manual for a water treatment system: 'Bei der Badewasserbehandlung ist zusätzlich zur UV-Behandlung noch eine Desinfektion des Beckenwassers mit Depotwirkung z.B. Chlorung erforderlich'. I think depot exists in English but what kind of effect is this?
