have an outdoor pool and I am told that the chlorine needs to
be stabilized. Why?
chlorine in a pool can be broken down by ultra violet light from
the sun. If stabilizer, also called conditioner, is not present,
the chlorine level will dissipate very rapidly over the course
of the day.
It is recommended
that you add stabilizer to the pool to prevent this chlorine break
down. The stabilizer level should be between 30-50 ppm to properly
stabilize the pool. The use of a stabilizer will reduce your overall
chlorine consumption and save you money. However, many of the
products available at your retailer are stabilized chlorine.
