Things offers chlorine in many different forms.
Chlorine is available as sodium di-chloride, calcium hypochlorite
(commonly referred to as cal-hypo), tablets (tri-chlor) and liquid
chlorine. Each of these forms of
chlorine have strengths and benefits.
Sodium di-chloride is commonly used in hot tubs, spas, and pools. It consists of 99% pure di-chlor. With 56% available chlorine, it is still an
extremely good sanitizer. Di-chlor is a quick-dissolving,
high-end sanitizer that is mostly used in residential pools more than
is the most commonly used sanitizer in swimming pools. Commonly referred to as “shock”, this
sanitizer is available at sixty-eight percent and seventy-eight percent potency
at Swim Things.
Swim Things offers
several kinds of chlorine tablets. We
offer multipurpose tablets (with clarifier and algaecide), and tri-chlor
tablets. We also offer one inch tablets
for spa users.
Liquid chlorine is the
last chlorine option we offer at Swim Things.
Liquid chlorine is used frequently when winterizing a pool or when the pool
is too cold to dissolve normal chlorine.
Swim Things prefers to use liquid chlorine during the winterization
process, because it will instantly become mixed with you pool water. The only negative of liquid chlorine is the
fifteen percent available chlorine that it offers.
