I ONLY HAVE A 1000 GALLON POOL .HOW MUCH SHOCK DO YOU PUT IN EVERY WEEK?

A     Answered on 6/7/2016 by Alan M.

For a 1,000 gallon pool, you would need to add 1.6 oz weekly. If the pool size was listed in error and the pool is 10,000 gallons, you would need to add 1 lb weekly. We also recommend you test your pool water weekly to determine if your chlorine levels are low and require shocking prior to adding Power Blast Pool Shock.

When using Blast-it 65 to shock is it best to broadcast around pool?In Skimmer? or dilute in bucket first?

A     Answered on 9/10/2014 by Patrick P.

The shock can be added to a bucket of water to pre-dissolve it before adding it to the pool. Shock should NEVER be added through the skimmer.

I constantly have an algae build up in one corner in my swimming pool. What can I do to get rid of it?

A     Answered on 12/20/2012 by 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.

When is the right time to shock my swimming pool?

A     Answered on 10/25/2012 by Patrick P.

A swimming pool should be shocked every 7-10 days. It is recommended to shock the pool during the evening hours so that the sun doesn't burn off the chlorine.

Is it true that if I have a vinyl pool I can only use liquid shock?

A     Answered on 10/25/2012 by Patrick P.

You can use granular or powdered shock with a vinyl pool as well. Before adding the shock to the pool, you want to add it to a bucket of pool water to pre-dissolve it.

My pool company recommends using a phosphate remover. Do you have any such item?

A     Answered on 10/18/2012 by Patrick P.

I would recommend using  Phosfree. The product container has easy to follow directions and will help you eliminate your phosphate problem.

I have an in ground pool with a mesh winter cover. Several weeks ago, I had added 2 gallons of chlorine to the pool. Since then, with the mesh cover still on, the water has turned green. I've been adding about a gallon of shock each week without improvement. Should I continue adding shock to the pool or should I wait?

A     Answered on 10/18/2012 by Patrick P.

I would recommend waiting until the pump and filter are running again before adding any more shock to the pool. Algae needs two things to grow: food and light. With a mesh winter cover, the algae has more than enough light to grow regardless of the shock that you're putting in. Also, shocking the pool without circulation can cause bleaching of the pool surface

Can I add shock through my automatic chlorinator?

A     Answered on 10/12/2012 by Patrick P.

No, you should never add shock through an automatic chlorinator. Never mix different types of chlorine. Pool shock can be added to a bucket of water and poured directly into the swimming pool.

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

A     Answered on 1/25/2012 by 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.

  (5 out of 5 stars)  Clear as crystal

from San Diego, CA ()

Pros: water clarity

My personal standard for water clarity is my dime test. I have a dime epoxied to the bottom of the deep end of the pool. If I can clearly see the face on the dime, then the water is clear. Zappit Pool Shock gets the job done using less shock than other brands. Costs less, too.
