If I leave my automatic pool cleaner in the water while I shock my pool, will the pool shock damage my pool cleaner?
In the long term, leaving your pool cleaner in the water while you shock your pool will shorten the lifespan of your automatic pool cleaner. When you shock your pool, you are boosting your chlorine parts per million (ppm) from 2-3, all the way to 10-12 ppm. Chlorine in its normal dosage has the ability to dry out, fade plastics. when chlorine levels reach pool shock levels it quickens the process of breaking down the pool cleaners plastic,.
Protect your automatic pool cleaner, remove it from the water when shocking or adding any heavy doses of sanitation chemicals.
