The chlorine sticks are designed to dissolve slowly for a steady release of the perfect amount of swimming pool chlorine to kill bacteria and algae.read more
When using In the Swim chlorine sticks in floaters, skimmers or automatic feeders, there’s no need to measure how much chlorine is going into your pool. The sticks are an easy and worry-free way of knowing your pool water chlorinated properly.
– 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.
