Product Information:


It is a common misconception that red eyes and a strong chlorine smell to the water is the result of too much chlorine. Actually, the cause is not enough chlorine! The combined chlorine compound, called a chloramine, is produced when a free chlorine molecule combines with a nitrogen or ammonia molecule. These compounds smell bad, irritate the eyes and skin, and get in the way of free chlorine trying to do its job.

Shocking is necessary to oxidize, or break apart these compounds. So then, when the eyes burn, and the pool smells over chlorinated, the pool doctor's prescription is to raise the chlorine level ten times the normal amount to achieve "breakpoint chlorination" thresholds which will break apart the chloramine bonds...(follow instructions on the product).

This is one of the easiest to use as it is already in liquid form. There is no need for premixing. This type of chlorine has a limited shelf life and should not be purchased too far in advance. Liquid chlorine has a technical name of Sodium Hypochlorite. It has a very high pH, around 11.0, and consequenly will lift your water's pH. This means you will regularly need to lower your pH with acid.
