    Pool Shock

    1. 10 months ago
      Hreat Stuff!
      We have been getting all of our pool products from In The Swim for several years. Everything does exactly what they are supposed to do. The Shock and this product are awesome. We have a 44k gal inground pool. Its a struggle to keep the levels up due to size and sun. This product gets the water back in shape over night!! Thank you In The Swim.

      Great value, even better when on sale!
      I have a 60,000 gal in-ground in the middle of the woods in the northeast... constant debris, wildlife, etc. making its way into the pool on a daily basis makes keeping the chemistry balanced and inhibiting algae growth a constant struggle. Previously I was running to the local pool store and picking up liquid chlorine 15 gals at a shot to balance and shock the pool in conjunction with my In The Swim Tri-Chlor tablets in my 2 chlorinators. I decided to give the Calcium Hypochlorite ... read more Sanitizing Granules a shot when I saw the 50# container on a great sale price while reordering my Tri-Chlor tabs. My first shock treatment only took 6# of granules, where as I typically would need 10-15 gallons to reach the same effect. Cost to product ratio was far better with the Granules, plus I can store the 50# much safer in a smaller space than the equivalent in liquids with fewer trips. Not to mention I'm far less likely to get a chemical burn from splashback or accidental spillage with the granules. From my initial experience, I estimate that I will continue this method over liquid chlorine from now on.

      exactly what I needed
      I had a to treat my pool for white water mold several times of the last 3 years which required multiple applications of high amounts chlorine based shock. The chlorine shock that I used was stabilized and the end result included my pool water registering a high level of stabilizer. I needed to find a chlorine product that did not include a stabilizer and this product was EXACTLY what I needed.

      best shock so far!
      I had the worst pool opening ever this year...but this has been saving me. Pool wouldn't hold chlorine for 2 weeks while all other levels were fine. I was told to add CYA based on dip stick reading but it was faulty...now my CYA is too high (130 but it was over 150 last week.) I even drained 1/4 of my in-ground vinyl pool and had 6k added via pool company. Can't tell you how much $ I wasted on products from a local retailer!!! The problem was dirty sand which I replaced (even though the sand was ... read more only 5yrs old.) Pool went to crystal clear overnight after shocking and adding dry clarifier as well. But now that my CYA is too high for tabs, I add 1/3 bag of this in every few days and the levels hold. This will be my method until the CYA is back at a manageable level to support stabilized tabs. FYI the pool people ruined (bleached) the lining by pouring in liquid at opening and closing...NEVER AGAIN! I WILL USE THIS MYSELF!

      Love this Stuff!
      I am still just a few years into owning an above ground pool. The first year was a disaster. The second was not a huge improvement. It was expensive, burdensome, frustrating and stressful. I was at the local pool store several times a week One day I ordered shock from In The Swim. I was hooked. It is August and my water has been sparkling clear all summer. All of my chemicals come from here. I get compliments on my clean water all the time. Best of all I enjoy the pool. I can finally say I am ... read more happy that I bought a home with a pool. I highly recommend their chemicals. As a bonus you will save tons of money.

      Cloudier than other brands
      By chance I had a few bags of ITS Super Shock and a few bags of Ultra Shock made by N. Jones Company. I noticed when putting them in the pool the ITS shock made the pool cloudy and the other did not. I have no idea why, but I would prefer the other shock.

      chlorine
      Works just like the very expensive chlorine other stores sell.

      Great Product
      I love the fact that this product works so well with no fuss and muss, You dump the appropriate amount into the skimmer basket and let your filter do the rest. I have no problem maintaining the proper chlorine level and the filter does all the work. If you do run into any algae growth, a heavier dose of this product works well to kill it. No wasting money on costly algaecides. Reccomended doses for weekly shock are on the container too. I also love the safety lid. I have used many that are just ... read more so hard to open, this one just has you squeeze the tab and rotate. No more fighting the lid just to get to the chemical.

      Excellent product
      Great product for quick clorine adjustments. I use it in combination of float with 3 in tablets.

      This stuff works! Its worth the extra money the cheap shock sucks the Di-zap is all i use now and it keeps my pool crystal clear and my chemicals balanced.

      Di Zap pool shock
      I have my packages of shock delivered right to my door don't have to run to pool store. My pool stays crystal clear and I have recommended to all my friends never have cloudy water again.

      Best Non Chlorine Shock!
      I have been using this shock since I got my AG pool for 3 years strong. I use the mineral or power ionization to keep my pool clean. It has never failed me! People remark how clean my pool is! In The Swim is FAB! Fast shipping! Their openining and closing kits are SUPERB too! My pool is crystal clear EVERY spring! I am in it within a week once it warms up with the solar cover I also got oh and the filter system too as the one failed from the pool company after the start of my second season!

      Great Product
      This is a great product.. I use to use chlorine shock and I would have to mix it in a bucket of water before adding it to the pool and it still made the water cloudy...After switching to the Chlorine-Free Pool Shock I don't have to waste my time mixing I just pour it directly into the deep end of the pool and walk away... My water stays perfectly clear and the kids can jump right in..

      Great for smaller pools
      I've been using this product for years in a vinyl lined 9,700 gal. pool. Regular chlorine shock runs the chlorine level up too high for swimming for over 24 hours, but with this product we can swim the next day. (I usually shock late in the evening.) Also, it doesn't bleach the liner. But if the pool gets infected with algae, you need chlorine shock.

      Excellent Product
      I tried the instant chlorine and it works great. I put in my pool every eight days and the water is clean and a nice blue. I like it better then the liquid chlorine due to the fact that the containers always leek when I buy them at the hardware store.

      Won't switch back!
      I ALWAYS use liquid chlorine and would pick it up with my groceries while at my local Wal-Mart. The huge bottles took up most of my cart not to mention mixing with groceries never set right with me. I saw this product online and with the free shipping thought, why not. When I first received the package, I thought something was wrong because the box was so small. The bottles were really little which really worried me. I can't believe how well they work. One of these little bottles works better ... read more and lasts longer then a whole gallon jug of the other stuff I used to buy. It dissolves quickly and does not leave a powder residue on the bottom of the pool floor. A little more expensive then what I was paying before but I use less and it gets delivered right to my door. So worth it!

      Liquid Chlorine No More
      I have been using Liquid Chlorine from In The Swim for several years. The 5 gallon liquid chlorine started feeling heavier and heavier. This is a great (and lighter) replacement. Works just as well.

      excellent producer.
      I have been using this pool shock for years and I find it very effective. No need for super shock in my 30,000 + gal pool

      Pool Shock
      I normally buy cheap shock and end spending more money. Last year I bought 12 bags of shock and only needed 6 bags the entire summer season.

      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: Swimming Pool Shock

    In The Swim's Dr. Pool

    Shock Treatments for Swimming Pools

    Granular chlorine is a convenient way to sanitize and disinfect pool water. Used in small amounts, swimming pool shock can raise chlorine levels quickly for a pool found to be lacking. In larger amounts it will easily super-chlorinate or hyper-chlorinate pools for removal of cloudy water, chloramines, and disinfectant by-products. Most importantly, swimming pool shock quickly destroys pathogenic bacteria, viruses and microbes found in pool water. 


    The Many Types of Pool Oxidizers

    •  - 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 of Pool Oxidizers

    •  - 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
       

    How To Shock a 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 can deliver between 7-9 PPM, per 10,000 gallons of pool water
    •  4. Add enough 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 super-chlorination
    •  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 chlorine to water, Never add water to chlorine
    •  - Always use the entire bag, Never store half-used bags of shock
    •  - Distribute the chemical around the pool, Never pour into the skimmer
    •  - Always adjust pH level to the low side, 7.2-7.4, where chlorine is more potent
    •  - Brush the pool after shocking, with a stiff pool brush, or a stainless steel bristled algae brush
    •  - Vinyl pools should pre-dissolve pool shock. Pour into a bucket of clean water and stir until dissolved
    •  - Sweep up any spills immediately, and add directly to the pool.
    •  - Never mix chlorine granules with any other type of chemical, or anything except water.
