What is superchlorination or shock treatment?
Shock Treatment is an additional boost of Chlorine every two weeks which will help with maintaining the chlorine levels in chlorine or salt water pools, especially during very hot weather or following heavy bather loads. Shock Treatment is adding double the normal dose of chlorine. Always add chemicals in the evening. Superchlorination is usually four times the normal dose of chlorine.
Remember salt water pools also need shock treatment and superchlorination from time to time. Shock treatment is recommended weekly in the hot summer months.Pool Pro has a number of shock treatments available. Which one you use will depend on:
