What pool salt chlorinator system is better - polaris which requires some chlorine and shock treatment or the ultrapure turbo shock ozone generators that supposedly do not require any shock ever?
Of the two I would recommend the Polaris system. Don't go for gadgets and feature, go for a simple reliable unit. Polaris will use more dependable, attainable parts. Up to a short time ago I would have agreed with you completely. However I installed a new maganblu salt water system for my pool and this puts every thing I have seen before to shame different kind of salt and different filter media in the sand filter. A: You still have to add chlorine some to the water to sanitize the water. To rely wholy upon the other systems is not wise. Another Answer The UltraPure Ozone Generator is not a stand alone system. You will still require a 0.5 to 1ppm Chlorine or Bromine residual. The UltraPure Ozone Generator will handle the bulk of the oxidation work (60-80%) that the Chlorine would normally be required to handle, leaving the Chlorine available to handle the sanitation, not oxidation.

It would be fine to add chlorine, but do it in each corner of the pool. You will not do any harm to the system. Make sure your pool water is balanced. This requires a good pro…per kit like they use at the pool shops, or have it tested at a computerized pool teting centre. The old large kit that tests for acid levels around 4"x6" is the size of the blue plastic box and roughly 80-100 dollars. a little more salt than not enough is always better. Regards, Peter
How do you close a salt chlorinated pool if before the salt chlorine generator you would shock the pool and add algaecide but you have never had to do this with the salt system?
Answer . \nthe same as before. whoever told you that you didnt have to shock and use algaecide lied.. Answer . \nthe same as before. whoever told you that you didnt h…ave to shock and use algaecide lied.
The amount of chlorine shock always depend on how much you want to raise your cholrine level for and the total amount of water in your pool.. I was told by pool experts that …the amount is 2.5 gals per 16,000gals or 1.5 gals per 10,000gals, once a week. During the summer, make sure you shock every 7 days, after sundown, when all swimmers are done. Shocking at night keeps the chlorine in the water longer.
a straight Chlorine pool is easy and does not cost much to start with. Salt (Sodium chloride) water pools are also chlorine pools but they use the salt in the pool to make …chlorine using an electrode designed to do that job. however the water can not be reused when back washing the filtration system. Salt (Magnesium chloride and potassium chloride) work like a normal salt pool only the salt is not harmful and can be beneficial to swimmers as well as the back wash being good for plants in the yard so no water need go to waste. Ozone requires special equipment but is reputed to be a very good sanitation method without the irritating effects of chlorine.
Get a new testing kit And take a sample of the pool water to the pool shop where they will be able to advise you on your particular needs.. And use 12.5% strength liquid chlo…rine to get the fast high rise that you need.
15 jugs, or 33 gallons will be enough to shock it. If it is really bad you will need to repeat the process.
\nI need help my pool is green
Pretty much --Yes.
im a pool owner and from my experience,chlorine burns off fast by the sun and i tried liquid then had my water tested and it showed no chlorine.and after many trips to leslies… pool supply and talking to other pool owners in there.i now use tablets that float and 1 bag of shoker each week. This is a subject I love to talk about. Why do you shock? Everyone shocks their pool, right? Listen very carefully. Shocking does rid your pool of bacteria, but the main reason to shock is to get rid of your chloramines. This is organic matter floating in the pool that the chlorine is trying to kill or has killed already. Get a good DPD, not an OTO test kit, and test for chlormines. If they're .8 and above, then shock, otherwise, you're just making the chemical companies more money. Having a properly balanced pool is not difficult, but it does take work. I'm the pool operator at our local YMCA and keeping an 80,000 gallon pool balanced is pretty easy, once you all the elements in place and know what you're doing. Chlorine 3.5-4.5, alkalinity 80-100, pH 7.6-7.8, not 7.2, hardness 150-250, not up to 400. You have to stay on top of it because the chlorine can go down in a matter of hours if no one properly checks it. Just be sure your getting the right info. The index most pool operators use comes from public water systems, not from pools. Shock when your pools needs it, not because it's Saturday. Check the link below.
150 grams of chlorine for 10,000 gallons of water
Your local pool supply store sells a product called... Chlorine neutralizer! Pool & Spa In order to maintain this type of pool, you need more than just to dump the chlorine… there. In addition to the chlorine, you will also need to add a few other chemicals to ensure that the right pH of the pool is maintained. Bear in mind that the pH level is very important. If it is too high, the chlorine will not be able to do its job well. If it is too low on the other hand, it becomes very acidic, which is not ideal for swimming.
an average dosage rating would be 1 pound of calcium hypochlorite per 10,000 gallons
There is chlorine shock and non chlorine shock. Fo chlorine shock, which is the normal shock, it is the same a s Chlorine but unstabilized, so it will not last in the pool ver…y long.
Be careful when testing for chlorine. No chlorine will have a clear reading but too much chlorine will cause bleaching of the test reagent confusing you to think you have no c…hlorine in the pool, try doing a dilution test where you dilute half pool water and half tap water, If coloured results appear with dilution you know you have too much chlorine. Swimming with too much chlorine can cause skin rashes irritations, discolouring of swim wear rotting the stitches, and blacken jewellry.
You should always maintain "normal" chlorine. Shocking a pool consists of adding a large dose of pure liquid chlorine. This kills any algae (and othe rmicro-organisms). The ch…lorine is not stabilized, and will disspate within a day or so.
