Product FAQs


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: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:I just purchased a pool and was told I need to use chlorine tabs. I'm new to this, where do I put them?

A:Congrats on you new pool. You will want to purchase a chlorine floater or automatic chlorinator. This is where you would put the chlorine tabs to maintain a chlorine level in your pool.


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: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.

   (4 out of 5 Stars) Chlorine stabilizer

Reviewed By: from Orient, IA ()

This product does a good job in stabilizing the chlorine level. It makes it possible to use less shock by keeping a even level of chlorine in pool at all times.
Make sure you run the filter system everyday for best results with this product.
