The practice of adding significant amount (10 ppm) of an oxidizing chemical all at once to pool/spa water to destroy ammonia, nitrogenous and organic contaminants in the water.
The practice of adding significant amounts of an oxidizing chemical (chlorine) to water to destroy ammonia and nitrogenous and organic contaminants in water.
The addition of an oxidizing compound to the pool or spa water to chemically breakup (oxidize) contaminants such as suntan oils, cosmetics, perspiration, metal ions and windblown dirt which interfere with normal sanitizer performance and/or cause cloudiness or colored water.
Super-chlorination accomplished by adding 5-10 times the normal chlorine dose every 7-10 days to help free up the regular chlorine.
a high concentration of chlorine
Also known as Super-chlorination. The practice of adding five to ten times the normal daily chlorine dose to destroy algae, or to prevent problems after heavy bather loads, prolonged high temperatures, or severe rains.
The addition of a large dose of chlorine to establish a chlorine residual, bread down accumulated organic wastes and/or kill existing algae and bacteria. Non-chlorine shock reduces combined chlorine and eliminates chloramine odor.
Addition of significant amounts of an oxidizing compound for the destruction of nitrogenous and other undesirable compounds.
The addition of an oxidizing compound to the pool water to chemically break up (oxidize) contaminants such as suntan oils; cosmetics, perspiration, metal ions, and wind-blown dirt which interfere with normal sanitizer performance and/or cause cloudy or colored water.
Adding large amounts of oxidizing chemicals to destroy ammonia and other organic wastes.
A large dose of chlorine administered to the pool (the experts recommend adding a dose of 5-10 ppm free available chlorine). This should be done at least once a week, more often if needed.
The addition of significant amounts of chlorine (or other oxidising compound) for the destruction of nitrogenous and other undesirable compounds. See Oxidation.
The addition of a large amount of chlorine into your pool water to break down accumulated organic wastes. Also may be referred to as a super dose.
the addition of 5-10 ppm of free available chlorine, in response to a particular pool problem such as algae.
The addition of Chlorinators in much larger amounts than normal to eliminate bad water conditions: bacteria, algae, chloramines, colored water.
