Why, and when, should I shock my pool?

Q. Why, and when, should I shock my pool?
A. Shocking your pool or spa kills bacteria, live organisms and other contaminants (like dirt, debris or algal spores), so your pool sparkles and you can swim safely, sooner – within 15 minutes in most cases!

In some circumstances (when your pool or spa is very low on chlorine) you may need to ‘shock’ it by adding a large dose of chlorine.
Talk to your local Swimart pool and spa specialist about when and how to correctly shock your pool.

 

TIP: Shocking your pool helps your pool sparkle so you can swim safely, sooner.
