Pros and Cons
- Works fast to quickly chlorinate your pool
- Lower cost compared to other forms of chlorine
- Easy to disperse throughout the pool as there is no need to dissolve
- Burns off faster than tabs (consumed quicker by UV rays) (Recommended to add at night)
- Maintenance is more frequent as one gallon needs to be applied per week
- Does not contain stabilizer or CYA and requires users to apply pH decreaser to lower pH
- Liquid Chlorine has a very short shelf life from production to when the consumer uses the product. On average it ranges from 4-6 weeks. If used at this timeframe the strength of chlorine reduces dramatically.
Liquid Chlorine Usage Instructions
- We recommend chlorinating your pool before the sun rises or after the sun sets.
- While holding the bottle away from your body, pour the liquid around the perimeter of the pool while the filtration system is running.
- Be sure to hold the bottle close to the pool water to avoid splashing - liquid chlorine will immediately and irreversibly bleach clothing.
- Add the liquid chlorine to the deep end of the pool to help distribute the chemical.
- Leave the pool uncovered and pump running for at least one hour after adding the chlorine.
- Check the water chemistry first thing in the morning.
- Make sure the chlorine level is within the normal range of 4-6 ppm, and repeat as needed.
- Rule of thumb: Wait 3 hours before entering pool after adding Liquid Chlorine or Shock.
