Keeping this in view, can you mix Trichlor and Dichlor?
Ok, Dichlor and Trichlor contain chlorine, just like the bleack. However, they also contain other ingredients. For a while these ingredients are ok, but after a while they can build up and cause trouble in your pool. You can get the same sanitation from good ol' bleach without the added stuff.
Secondly, what is Trichlor used for? Trichlor is a common sanitizer used in chlorinated swimming pools and is available in powder or tablets. Its primary uses are water sanitation, along with providing some protection as a mild algaecide.
Additionally, what is the difference between Dichlor and Trichlor chlorine?
The difference between these two types of Chlorine from the other three is that Trichlor and Dichlor are stabilized Chlorine, meaning they contain cyanuric acid for sun protection. Trichlor has a high Chlorine saturation and affects a pool's pH, however, it is the most popular type of Chlorine for regular pool use.
Does Dichlor raise pH?
Using Dichlor will contribute to the level of cyanuric acid in the pool. The pH level of Dichlor is nearly neutral (7.0), and won't affect the pH of the pool water noticeably, is fast dissolving and because it's sodium based, it won't contribute to calcium levels in pools.
