  1. I have a 20-yard lap pool with a cover on it. Do I shock with a cover on or cover off ?
    I read somewhere that you should shock at night so the sun doesn’t dissipate the chlorine. Is that a good idea?

    1. Take the cover off if it is in contact with the water. Chlorine is a very caustic material, so if your cover is in contact with super chlorinated water it could cause it to degrade quickly.

      Yes, it is a good idea to shock at night, so the chlorine does not get burned off by the sun.
