Product Description

These powerful 1 lb. bags are your secret to a successful season! Swimmers, rainfall, sunlight, and leaves deplete chlorine's ability to sanitize your pool. Shock “burns" or oxidizes these contaminates and replenishes the chlorine level in your pool. Shocking actually restores your chlorine's “fighting power" and makes it safe to swim again.

Did you know that those noxious odors, skin irritations, and eye-burning problems are not usually the result of too much chlorine? In fact, there is likely not enough chlorine to oxidize the organic matter. Blue Wave shock is the only solution!!

For a trouble-free season remember to shock:
-Once every other week under normal conditions
-Once a week during prolonged periods of warm weather, heavy rainfall, and heavy bather loads


Zap organic pollutants, bacteria, and algae with this powerful shock treatment. This unique, quick-dissolving formula does not require pre-mixing and will not cloud your water or bleach your vinyl liner. Burst is alo pH-neutral, so it will not affect pH levels, cutting down on the expense of balancing chemicals. Super strong 56% available chlorine. Active ingredient: Dichlor. 1 lb. treats 10,000 gallons.

Is liquid shock or granular shock stronger?

A     Answered on 12/20/2012 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

If you look at the labels of both products, you will find that liquid shock is weaker. The bottle has vented caps (to vent chlorine gas) so the longer it sits on a shelf, the weaker it gets. Granular shock is a lot stronger and does not lose its strength as long as it's stored properly.

Why do I need to add shock to my swimming pool every week?

A     Answered on 12/20/2012 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Chlorine tablets alone are not enough to keep the water sanitized. Pool shock helps to oxidize the water as well as breakdown chloramines.

I shocked my pool this morning, how long do I have to wait before i can swim?

A     Answered on 10/25/2012 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

When you shock the pool, you want to do so in the evening time and let the filter run over night. After shocking, it is recommended to wait at least 10-12 hours. You will want to test the chlorine level to ensure that it has fallen back to within range (3-5 ppm).

How soon after shocking can I go into the pool?

A     Answered on 10/18/2012 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

I would recommend shocking the pool in the evening, the pump and filter should run all night. You should be able to resume swimming the following day as long as the chlorine is within an acceptable range (2-4 ppm).

I constantly have an algae build up around my pool steps. All my levels seem to be in range. Is there something I'm missing?

A     Answered on 10/18/2012 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

I would recommend aiming the return fitting downward and towards the steps. This should help circulate the water around the steps better. I would also recommend brushing down the pool and using a chlorine shock.

I'm looking for pool shock to sanitize my drinking water. Will this work?

A     Answered on 1/25/2012 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

I have heard of people using pool shock to sanitize drinking water but I can not promote the use of any pool shock for this purpose. You will want to contact the NSF for further information.

Following chemical treatment, how long do I have to wait before I use my pool?

A     Answered on 7/29/2006 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

With the exception of superchlorinating (which requires waiting until the chlorine level drops to recommended levels), you can generally use your pool when the chemical is dispersed throughout the pool. Fifteen minutes to one hour is a good rule of thumb.
