Our pool cleaning tablets effectively protect against bacteria, algae and other organisms. These swimming pool water sanitizers make for a safer, cleaner and more enjoyable swimming experience. Protects against chlorine loss from direct sunlight while stabilizing it, reducing the amount of chemicals you need to add. Specialty chemicals are the chemicals you hope you won’t need on a regular basis, but they’re invaluable if you have chemical problems with pool water.
Algaecides are either copper-based or non-metallic polymers. They help prevent algae growth and eliminate algae if they develop. Having the pool shock and an algaecide on hand is the best way to stay ahead of algae problems. Pool enzymes such as Pool Perfect break down oils and other forms of non-living organic contaminants in your pool water.
Filter cleaners are used to clean sand, D, E. These cleaners keep your filter running smoothly by removing oils, minerals, metals and other filter debris. Chlorine tablets are a safe, effective and cost-effective way to sanitize your pool. They are designed to dissolve gradually and release chlorine into your water as they get smaller and smaller.
Some people find they need to use an algaecide to help the chlorine keep algae under control, and others may need help from clarifiers to make a small pool filter perform better. Right now, for the algae, you need a good (low) pH of around 7.2 and lots of grainy pool shock, maybe 3-4 lbs per 10,000 gallons (you also need to know how many gals are in your pool). While your pool pump is running, water floats through your skimmer line, past the pump, into the filter, through the heater and back into the pool. I just bought a 15ft 5k gallon intex vinyl pool that I set up 2 days ago, although it’s new fresh water, it already has a greenish tone.
Many will tell you that chlorine tablets for swimming pools are essentially the solid version of liquid chlorine disinfectants, and these people are certainly not far from the truth. If TA levels drop below 80 ppm, use the Alkalinity Increaser to increase TA in 10,000 gallons of pool water by approximately 10 ppm. So if you ever need to chlorinate your pool quickly and you’re pressed for time, you can crush a few tablets into a fine powder and spread it over your pool. Each pool also needs chemicals to increase calcium, cyanuric acid, or alkalinity levels, usually once a year.
They are usually installed at the end of your pool system, right after the heater and before the return line. Silvestri I have a 10,000 gallon above ground pool what do you recommend what chemicals and their quantities I should use. Overall, 3-inch stabilized chlorine tablets are best for outdoor use, while 1-inch unstabilized tablets are ideal for small indoor pools and spas. Use 3 inch chlorine tablets in a 2 tablet per week chlorine floater or whatever the number is to achieve a consistent and consistent 1.0 to 2.0 ppm chlorine content as confirmed by your test kit or test strips.
While you need to transport gallons of liquid chlorine to the pool to get the job done, the tablets are lightweight and can be easily applied via chlorinators in the pool’s sanitary or tablet float dispensers.
