A pool without treatment for a long time can turn green due to algae infestation, in this case, it is necessary to provide a special treatment called shock. This treatment is also necessary when the pool is contaminated with feces or dead animals.
The shock treatment in the pool is used when there is a very serious problem in the pool and only the excess chlorine can solve, such as:
Water contamination by dead animals or feces;
Excess organic material in water;
A large number of swimmers attending the pool daily;
Green water and signs of algae growth;
Complaints of burning eyes or strong chlorine odor;
Unpleasant odor in the pool;
Shock treatment in the swimming pool
Check and adjust the levels of alkalinity (80-120 ppm) and pH (7.0 to 7.4). Add 14 g of chlorine granules per cubic meter of water.
After the addition of extra chlorine, all the dirt from the water would fall to the bottom of the pool. Now we will be able to vacuum the bottom.
