Chlorine and non-chlorine compounds destroy algae, bacteria, and even chloramines while increasing free chlorine levels. Pool shock should be used when free chlorine measures zero or when combined chlorine is over 0.5 ppm.
Increasing the pH of the water or reducing its acidity slows the dissipation of chlorine. However, chlorine and other disinfectants aren’t as effective in high pH levels, which can also lead to corrosion.
Pool salt contains sodium and chlorine; when added to water a chemical reaction converts chlorine ions into hypochlorous acid, which has less odor than pure chlorine and doesn’t cause skin or eye irritation.
