Maximize Your Chlorine Usage This Summer

You’ve heard about the potential chlorine shortage this year. But, did you know there are some things you can do to maximize your chlorine usage this summer? We outline a few tips in this article.

What is the Purpose of Chlorine?

The main purpose of chlorine in your swimming pool is to kill bacteria. But, it isn’t as effective, it won’t last as long, and it won’t help your water quality if any of these conditions are present:

  • Algae
  • Contaminants
  • Phosphate
  • A high pH

So what can you do to make your chlorine more effective?

The Solutions

First, you can prevent and kill algae with a dual-action chemical called Algae Complete. You usually just need one value-sized bottle to control algae all season long!

Next, you want to keep your phosphate levels low while removing contaminants. You can do this with the all new Pool Juice Phosphate Remover. You only need one weekly dose for this product to break down non-living contaminants in the water and on the filter. The end result is sparkling water!

Finally, you want to keep your pH level in the right range so you have softer water all season. With one application of BioGuard Optimizer you’ll have great water.

Always Keep Up on These Tasks

There are a few things you want to attend to on a regular basis. Doing these things will make your chlorine more effective and your pool water healthier, cleaner, and clearer.

  1. Brush and vacuum your pool. If your pool is dirty it tasks the chlorine.
  2. Eliminate build up and improve your pool’s filtration by cleaning your filter regularly.
  3. Clean your salt cell to keep plates clear and chlorine production up.
  4. Test your water – don’t forget we offer FREE water testing! This helps keep your water balanced so your chlorine is more effective.
