  • When dealing with pool chemicals there are a few things to remember:Always take the proper precaution in dealing with these types of pool chemicals and read the manufacture’s labels.
  • Use heavy-duty rubber gloves and goggles and keep pool chlorine out of reach of children and pets. I recommend using liquid chlorine. 
  • If you live in a place with high calcium fill water, you might want to use liquid chlorine (sodium hypochlorite). Many pool owners use bleach. It's watered down pool chlorine.
  • Be sure your pool pH, alkalinity, CYA (pool stabilizer), and calcium hardness are adjusted 
  • Be careful when using Dichlor as it can get out of hand quickly. For every 10ppm of chlorine added with Dichlor, you'll raise the CYA by 9ppm.
  • Trichlor chlorine tablets are a great way to weekly dose your pool with chlorine but it does weekly dose your pool with CYA. For every 10ppm of chlorine added with Trichlor tabs you'll raise the CYA by 6ppm.
  • Flocculants (flocculate), certain algaecides (other than PolyQuat 60), clarifiers, coagulants, phosphate removers, etc... only mask the problem of algae in pool water. You must know the chemical readings and how to read them.
  • Be sure to turn OFF your salt water chlorine generator before shocking the pool

Not all cloudy pool water and algae in swimming pools are the same.

If you have green swampy water, that's a sign of algae, while a clear emerald green water can be high metal content. You will approach them differently.
