How many floating chlorine dispensers do I need?

To use the right number of tablets, always round your pool volume up to the nearest unit of 5,000 gallons. For instance, your pool has a capacity of 20,000 gallons, you would add four chlorine tablets. But if your pool holds just 16,000 gallons, you'd still use four, three-inch chlorine tablets.

Can you swim with chlorine tablets in pool?

In most cases, you're best off with 3-inch chlorine tablets, as one single tablet can treat up to 5,000 gallons of water. On the other hand, 1-inch tablets contain far less chlorine (about half as much as 3-inch tablets), so they're better suited for smaller indoor pools and spas.

How many chlorine tablets go in a hot tub?

Your owner's manual or dvd will tell you how many tablets to add, but it's usually between 2-6, depending on the size of your hot tub. Simply put the correct number into the floater and drop the floater into the hot tub water.

Why are my chlorine tablets not dissolving?

If the tablets are not dissolving, and you get a strong smell of chlorine when you open the chlorinator, you probably have a bad check valve in the chlorinator. It is not allowing any water to move through the chlorinator, and any water that is there simply sits there and builds up a yellowish chlorine gas.

Can you leave pool floats in the pool?

Do shut down your pool filtration system if you notice your pool float leaving debris in the pool. The plastic or vinyl of a float can be devastating to your motor and filters. Don't just inflate your pool floats as soon as you take them out of storage.

Can you use bleach to shock a pool?

Using Bleach as a Shock
You need to use less of such products per volume than you do if you simply add chlorine, and if you opt for chlorine alone, you need more bleach than you do pool chlorine. Bleach contains the same chemical -- sodium hypochlorite -- as pool chlorine, but the concentrations are different.

Can you use chlorine tablets in a vinyl pool?

(Sodium dichloro-s -triazinetrione) or Di-chlor for short, is the chlorine you MUST USE for all vinyl pools! Di-Chlor is fast dissolving – It will not sit on the vinyl and eat away at it. Also, do not throw chlorine tabs directly into the pool. They will sit there and cause what we call “chemical burn.”

It is recommended to wait at least 20 minutes to an hour after adding water balancing chemicals. You should wait 2-4 hours (or one full cycle through the filter) to swim from the moment you use calcium chloride in your pool. It is safe to swim once your chlorine levels are around 5 ppm or after 24 hours.

Why can't I keep chlorine in my pool?

Chlorine lock can occur when there is too much cyanuric acid (also referred to as conditioner or stabilizer) in the water. This occurs when too much stabilizer is added to the water or when the swimming pool isn't being partially drained and refilled periodically. Chlorine lock can also occur if the pH is unbalanced.
