The most common way to kill bacteria in your pool and keep your swimming pool water healthy is to use chlorine. Before using chlorine, it is important to have a correct water balance first. Once this has been achieved, chlorine levels between 1.0-3.0 mg/l should be satisfactory to preserve bacteria free swimming pool water. There are two ways to tell if your pool is a well-managed chlorine treated swimming pool is that
it will have no odour and the level of chloramines will be less than 0.5 mg/l. Here at Cascade Pools we have a wide range of swimming pool chemicals for you to choose from to suit your swimming pool requirements.
Multifunctional Stabilised Chlorine Granules
Fast dissolving product that contains clarifier and oxygen granules.
Minimal effect on pH
Can be used for daily disinfection. The chlorine granules may be applied directly to pools and spas where temperatures exceed 20 degrees Celsius. If below this temperature or in doubt pre-dissolve this product in a clean plastic container at a maximum rate of 100g per 2.2 gallons (10 litres) of water. Stir well to ensure the product is fully dissolved. Add the solution to the pool or spa with the pump(s) turned ‘on’.
Maintain pH level within the ideal range of 7.2 – 7.6 and maintain free chlorine residuals within the range of 1-3 mg/l (ppm) for pools and 3-5 mg/l (ppm) for spas.
It is recommended that you periodically (e.g. weekly/fortnightly) shock or oxidise your water to eliminate any excess contamination.
NOTE: Hot weather, high pool use or heavy rain may require a higher daily dose
