Shocking your swimming pool in addition to diligent use of the right amount of chlorine is an important part of your pool maintenance program. Pool shock helps product the vibrant, fresh, shining swimming pool that makes you, your family, and your guests want to jump right in for a swim. It also prevents algae bloom and murky water.
Because of its preventative effects, you still need to apply pool shock treatments even when pool water looks clear and chlorine is consistently used. If you don’t make pool shock part of your regular maintenance plan, the following problems will result:
- A general dull or dirty pool water appearance, even before more obvious problems occur
- An unpleasant swimming experience due to red, irritated eyes or a strong chlorine smell (which actually comes from chloramine, chlorine that no longer has sanitizing properties)
- An unattractive pool due to cloudy water, algae growth, or both
- This product is for chlorinated pools!
