Does chlorine free sun shock work?
Chlorine-Free Sun Shock will keep up to 22,000 gallons of swimming pool water crystal clear. It appears to work like magic, but it’s only simple chemistry. (You’ll need two units if your pool is larger than 22,000 gallons).
Do you need chlorine with an ionizer?
Chlorine / Bromine 1ppm to 3ppm in pools using salt chlorination or direct chlorination). Some ionizer manufacturers suggest specific chlorine or bromine compounds to use with their ionizer. This is fine, but not necessary. Any form of chlorine, whether liquid, tablet, or salt generated will do the trick.
How long does a solar pool ionizer last?
How long does the copper anode last? The copper anode for the SPI-900 Solar Ionizer lasts approximately one year, depending on weather and water conditions.
Are pool ionizers worth the money?
There is evidence that pool ionizers effectively help eliminate bacteria and harmful pathogens in addition to preventing algae. At least one study has concluded that combined with low levels of chlorine, ionizers were more effective at keeping pools sanitized than higher levels of chlorine alone.
How much does a 3 chlorine tablet weigh?
3″ Chlorine Tabs weigh 8 oz. each and are slow-dissolving.
How long does PoolRx last?
PoolRx minerals last up to 6 months, because there is a reaction between the minerals in the water and our specially treated alloy cylinder that is inside the plastic shell. This reaction keeps the minerals effective for a longer per of time. Typically, 4-6 months.
Do solar powered ionizers work?
While there are other products and methods that reduce algae, bacteria and chlorine requirement in pools (such as UV and Ozone systems), solar pool ionizers are by far the best value when it comes to price and energy consumption.
Can I use shock instead of chlorine?
You do need to use both tabs and shock. Without tabs, the chlorine shock will dissipate quickly out of the water; without shock, the chlorine level will not get high enough to fully sanitize the water. You should aim to keep the chlorine level at between 1 and 3 ppm.
Can I add shock and chlorine at the same time?
Yes, you can add both shock and chlorine to a pool. However, you should not add them at the same time. The best thing to do is to shock your pool first. Then, once the chlorine levels go down to a certain threshold, you can add more chlorine.
What’s the difference between shock and chlorine?
Liquid chlorine and granular shock have the same active chemical that sanitizes your pool, what changes is the strength and the way you use it. Liquid chlorine is less costly, unstabilized and comes in liquid form. Granular shock is stabilized and comes in a solid form that dissolves in your pool.
How do I know if my ionizer is working?
Monitor the display of the meter to see how quickly the 1.1 kV charge is dissipated to 0.1 kV. The speed at which this occurs (the discharge time) indicates how well the ionizer is operating.
Do you shock a mineral pool?
When you first add minerals to your pool, use chlorine shock to kill any bacteria and clear up the water. In fact, you really should to keep bacteria, viruses, and algae at bay. Just remember to always test the water after shocking, and balance as needed.
Do ionizers really work in pools?
Ionizers release heavy metals that can kill bacteria when exposure is long enough. But pool ionizers have drawn a lot of scrutiny from government authorities. These authorities argue that silver and copper ionizers have not been proven adequately effective in controlling human pathogens in a swimming pool or spa.
