      Worked Wonderfully!
      I had tried everything for weeks on end to turn our cloudy pull water clear. One dose of Cloud Out cleared it right up.

      Eliminated My Yellow Algae
      We have a 15,000 gallon 16 year old concrete pool that needs to be refinished because it has corroded over the years from chemical use which creates the perfect environment for algae growth. We had mustard algea pretty much everywhere with a concentration on the sides and steps. The Super Algeacide and Super Shock totally eliminated it! It took a lot of elbow grease (brushing and vacuuming), but after a couple days and almost the entire bottle of Super Algeacide over the course of thee days, it ... read more is gone and has remained gone! Last summer I spent much more $ at our local pool supply store buying products to eliminate the mustard algea. Great product and great price!

      A Great Product
      I have been using this product as a supplemental pool shock for 16 years. I have lots of grand kids and like to keep my chlorine level at 3ppm. After heavy swim usage I shock with chlorine-free shock to sanitize with out raising the chlorine level. As a retired Pool Store employee I have recommended this type of shock many times to customers who have had high chlorine levels but needed additional water sanitation.

      Just what I was searching for!
      I had been buying this type product locally but for some reason every place stopped carrying the non chlorine shock. It is what I need for our salt system from time to time depending on weather and the location of our pool. This was the perfect buy for us.

      BETTER THEN CHLORINE
      I retired from an Oil Refinery and know how dangerous Chlorine is to our bodies. Even when I showered at work, I put a showerhead on the shower to filter it out. We have well water and don't have to worry about it at home. After much research, I found that Peroxide a great alternative for our pool and spa but, that it is also very good for the body. You don't have the after swim chlorine smell, it doesn't sting your eyes and does just as good as chlorine. We are very glad that we switched to peroxide.

      Works Great!
      I started using this product last year. It is very easy to use and the best thing is it is not chlorine. However, if you purchase this be VERY AWARE that you MUST BE HOME to sign for the Oxidizer!. In the Swim should really specify this when you order this. It is a federal law because apparently one can use this product to create explosives. Please, In The Swim, put a red asterisk or something to that effect, indicating that you must physically be present to sign for this product, and educate ... read more your employees that this is the case as well. Three (3) different employees assured me that I didn't, and sure enough! I did! This caused a major delay in re-directing the shipment to me.

      The best thing about this product is that you can add it directly into the water! the last shock I had you had to mix it and then pour it in. I love in the swim!!

      I buy this shock every year. The quality is excellent as are the results. I will never use another shock while I own my pool.

      Crystal Clear Over Night! Kills everything!
      This shock works great. It dissolves in the water before even hitting the liner of my pool, even in the shallow end. The shock power is intense. I use shock on a regular basis to keep my pool clean, but when I get some cloudiness, or have a lot of people in, I use one to two bags after, and my pool is crystal clear within hours. The next day...you wouldn't even know it's been used.

    In The Swim Knowledge Pool: Pool Shock

    In The Swim's Dr. Pool

    Shock Treatments for Swimming Pools

    Granular pool shock treatments are a convenient way to sanitize and disinfect pool water. Used in small amounts, our pool shock can raise chlorine levels quickly for a pool found to be lacking. In larger amounts, pool shock will easily super-chlorinate or hyper-chlorinate pools for removal of cloudy water, chloramines, disinfectant by-products, and all types of bacteria, virus and microbes found in pool water. 


    The Many Types of Pool Shock

    •  - Di-Zap Multi Shock is stabilized, and can be used daily in pools, spas and fountains without calcium build-up.
    •  - Pool Shock and Super Pool Shock from In The Swim is suitable for all purposes, sold in bags and buckets.
    •  - Non-Chlorine pool shock does everything that pool shock does, with exception to killing heavy algae blooms.

    The Many Uses for Pool Shock

    •  - Restores clarity to cloudy pool water
    •  - Kills pool algae strains of all types
    •  - Sanitizes to destory bacteria of all types
    •  - Removes chloramines and other chlorine byproducts
    •  - Breaks down organic and non-organic matter, and bather waste
    •  - Raises chlorine levels quickly when found to be near zero
    •  - Removes stains on plaster, pebble and fiberglass pools

    Where's the Lithium Shock?

    Lithium pool shock is no longer available, due to a worldwide shortage of the raw element Lithium. Lithium prices have risen steadily over the past ten years, driven by high demand for Lithium, used in Lithium Ion batteries from everything from wrist watches to electric vehicles. The price increases in 2016 finally reached a tipping point, where manufacturers stopped producing Lithium Hypochlorite. The best substitute for Lithium pool shock is non-chlorine pool shock, in terms of having the most similar features. Calcium Hypochlorite can also be used in place of Lithium Hypo as well, however it does not dissolve as rapidly; pre-dissolving is recommended for vinyl pools.


    Should I Pre-Dissolve Pool Shock?

    When using chlorine pool shock in a Vinyl pool, it is recommended to pre-dissolve the granules in a bucket of water before adding to the pool. Plaster, pebble and fiberglass pools can pour or broadcast directly into the pool, using a pool brush afterwards to help distribute the granules. To Pre-Dissolve pool shock, pour 1 or 2 bags into a clean 5-gal bucket that has been 3/4 filled with pool water. Stir for 60-90 seconds until completely dissolved, and then pour along the edge of the pool. If any remaining granules fall into the pool, use a pool brush to help them dissolve. 


    How Do I Shock My Pool?

    •  1. Clean the pool of debris before shocking a pool
    •  2. Balance the water chemistry and adjust pH to 7.2-7.4
    •  3. Each pound of pool shock will deliver between 7-9 PPM, per 10,000 gallons of pool water
    •  4. Add enough shock to reach a target threshold of 10, 20 or 30 PPM, depending on water condition
    •  5. Brush the pool, and run pool filter for 6-8 hours following shock treatment
    •  6. Keep solar covers safely stored off the pool until high chlorine level subsides
    •  7. Check chemistry levels within 24 hours and adjust as needed, if chlorine is found to be zero, repeat shock treatment

    Pool Shock Treatment Tips

    •  - Always add shock to water, Never add water to pool shock
    •  - Always use the entire bag, Never store half-used bags of shock
    •  - Always distribute the shock around the pool, Never pour into the skimmer
    •  - Always shock a pool with a pH level on the low side, 7.2-7.4, where chlorine is more potent
    •  - Always brush the pool after shocking, with a stiff pool brush, or a stainless steel bristled algae brush
    •  - Always rinse out your shock bags in the pool, and allow them to dry before disposing in the trash
    •  - Always sweep up any shock spills immediately, and pour into the pool. Never mix chlorine types.
