Product FAQs


Q:We have a bucket of chlorine tablets that was sitting for a few days without the lid on and it rained. We have tried to dry out the bucket and tablets, but some of the individual bags still have a little moisture in them and there is a strong smell. Is it safe to still use them?

A:The chlorine tabs will begin to dissolve because of the moisture. You can still use them but they will lose their strength quickly.


Q:What are chloramines?

A:Chloramines are the result of chlorine molecules combining with ammonia and nitrogen in the water. Chloramines smell bad and cause skin and eye irritation. The presence of chloramines can be an indication that you have "chlorine-lock".


Q:My pool turned green recently. Can you recommend something to help clear it up?

A:There are several things that can cause a pool to turn green. You can use our How to Clean a Green Swimming Pool  guide for starters. Be certain to test the water and adjust the chemical levels.


Q:My chlorine levels are really high. Is draining the pool the only way to lower it?

A:If your chlorine levels are high, you can use a chlorine reducer to lower it.


Q:How many tablets do I need for my 18,000 gallon pool?

A:You will need approximately 4 tablets per week based on your gallonage.


Q:What is chlorine lock?

A:Chlorine lock is a condition in your swimming pool when the chlorine levels ( free chlorine and total chlorine) are not the same which makes the chlorine useless. You can read more here.


Q:What should the chlorine level in my swimming pool be?

A:You should try to maintain a chlorine reading of 2-4 ppm (parts per million).


Q:I was told that you should never put the chlorine tablets in the skimmer, only in a floater. I have never used a floater in 11 years. Is this true? And if yes, why?

A:Placing chlorine tablets in the skimmer will cause the skimmer basket and pool pump to corrode prematurely due to the concentration of chlorine. I would recommend using either an automatic chlorinator or a chlorine floater in conjunction with slow dissolve chlorine tablets.


Q:I use bromine in my spa. It smells very strong, and I would like to change to chlorine. Can I do that or are spa's specially equipped for the use of bromine?

A:If you are going to switch from bromine to chlorine, you would need to drain the spa and refill it with fresh water. Bromine is typically used in spas because it holds up better in higher temperatures while chlorine does not. If you want to reduce the amount of bromine you need,  you could use a Nature2 Spa Purifier which uses minerals to purify the water.


Q:How do I break chlorine lock?

A:One of the main reasons that chlorine can become "locked" is that too much stabilizer has accumulated over the course of time. Stabilizer (cyanuric acid) can build up over a long period of time, sometimes months or even years. Once the stabilizer reaches high levels, the chlorine in the water is useless. The only way to break the lock is to reduce the level of cyanuric acid in the pool. The quickest way to do this is to add fresh water to the pool. This will help dilute the acid levels in the pool so that the chlorine will become more effective. Pools should be partially drained and refilled (every 3 years or so).


Q:I just purchased a new pool. What chemicals do I need to keep it clean?

A:Congratulations on your pool purchase. To keep your pool nice and clean you will need a variety of chemicals. Feel free to browse through our Pool Chemical Guide. It provides quite a bit of information to help get you started.


Q:Can I pay for expedited shipping on my pool chemicals?

A:It is the policy of our shipping carrier, UPS, to not permit expedited shipping of possible hazardous or dangerous chemicals via air transit. This policy includes all pool chemicals making the only available delivery method for such items UPS Ground.

   (3 out of 5 Stars) Nice Product at a nice price

Reviewed By: from Salt Lake ()

Pros: Good price and it work ok

Cons: could be a better quality

I just tried these new products, they work ok but I prefer the blue wave quality over this brand. the tablets don't seem to be as uniform in density as the blue wave products, but the price is ok. I prefer Sun or Blue wave over this product

Reviewed By: from Columbia, NJ ()

Pros: Dissolves slowly and less product is needed

Cons: none

Box stores are selling products that dissolve rapidly these days. This product does not crumble immediately. It lasts while dissolving slowly and properly adding Cl to my pool.
