When used with floaters, skimmers, and automatic feeders, chlorine sticks dissolve slowly and steadily release the perfect amount of pool chlorine into your swimming water. Pool chemicals are used to keep pool water safe and clean and swimming pool chlorine is especially useful for killing bacteria and preventing the growth of algae. Finding a quick solution for chlorinating your pool can make the work of pool maintenance much easier. Pool chlorine sticks are an excellent product because as a pool owner they give you piece of mind knowing that your pool is always chlorinated. Never be faced with slimy, green, and cloudy water because of an algae breakout and never worry about bacterial contamination again by using chlorine sticks.

– If chlorine seems ineffective make sure the dispensing source of the chlorine is getting proper water flow to dissolve the chlorine. For example making sure water level is correct in the pool, making sure the floater has proper ventilation, and that the automatic feeders dial is set correctly. If chlorine still seems to be ineffective check the stabilizer also known as cyanuric acid. The correct level for stabilizer is 30-60 ppm. If the stabilizer is too low the chlorine will be used up faster making it appear that the chlorine is not effective. If the stabilizer level is too high it will slow down the oxidizing process and render the chlorine less effective. This must be compensated for by using a higher concentration of chlorine in the pool water.
– If you believe the chlorine is defective/ineffective, you can test by scraping a small amount of tablet into a glass of tap water. (Do not use pool water.) Dissolve and test as usual.
