I shock my pool, should I use chlorine or non-chlorine shock?
treatments accomplish the goal of destroying and removing bather
waste and preventing the formation of combined chlorine.
Superchlorination, the addition of large amounts of chlorine,
has some drawbacks. Because it requires large amounts of chlorine,
it can damage liners and swimsuits and upset water balance. Additionally,
it is difficult to determine proper dosage amounts and it requires
swimmers to wait until the level of chlorine drops, often a day
or more, until they can swim.
shock, on the other hand, does not require excessive chlorine
use and allows swimming almost immediately after application,
does not harm liners, has easily determined dosage rates and does
not upset water balance.
