Alternative to Liquid Chlorine

When it comes to shocking swimming pools different types of products can be used to accomplish the task of oxidizing contaminants and leaving water crystal clear and free of contaminants.

SUPER SHOCK has many benefits to consider compared to liquid chlorine:

  • No degradation or loss of performance when stored
  • Longer shelf life
  • Stores more compactly
  • Easier to lift and carry
  • Easier to accurately measure desired dose without spillage and waste
  • Lower pH (11.0) than Liquid Chlorine
  • No jug to return to the store for refilling
  • A season supply can be purchased in one visit to the store
  • Well-suited for curbside service and delivery
  • Available in several package formats - 500g, 2kg, 3kg, 7kg, 9kg, 12kg, 20kg

Real World Example:

A single, 7kg pail of SUPER SHOCK will:

  • Shock treat a 24’ round (50,000 litres) aboveground pool 10 times
  • Shock treat an 18x36’ (100,000 litres) in ground pool 5 times

Real World Example:

Since Liquid Chlorine will degrade as it is stored, the ability to stock up is impractical. A pail of SUPER SHOCK could last the entire season and any unused product would be fine for use the following season with no loss of performance.
