Pool chlorine tablets are simple way to keep the pool clean and maintain a safe pH balance. Add tablets to a floating dispenser and let it keep the water conditioned as it float around the pool. Chlorine tablets when dissolved in water, release active chlorine and are used as oxidizing disinfectants for the conditioning by chlorination of swimming pools, spas and waste water systems.
CHLORINE GRANULAR 70%
Granules of chlorine come in pots and are simple scattered over a pool. Because they are smaller in consistency, as well as being less concentrated (around 70% pure chlorine as opposed to 90% in tablets). Granules of chlorine dissolved more easily and quickly and fight bacteria more rapidly than tablets, granules are more often used as shock treatments for pools.
SODIUM CARBONATE (SODA ASH)
Sodium Carbonate is the chemical name for soda ash and washing soda. The pricipal applications of sodium carbonate are in the manufacturer of glass and the production of chemicals. It is also used in processing wood pulp to make paper, in making soaps and detergents, in refining aluminium, in water softening and in many other appplications.
Sodium Cabonate (Soda Ash / Washing Soda) can help remove alcohol and grease stains from clothing, as well as calcifications in everything from coffee pots and espresso makers to boilers and hot water heaters.
Sodium Carbonate (Soda Ash / Washing Soda) can also be used to increase the alkalinity in swimming pools, helping to ensure the proper pH balance of the water. It can be used in dying to help the dye bond to the fabric effectively.
SODIUM BISULFATE (DRY ACID)
Sodium Bisulfate (Dry Acid) is usually processed into white granules that are added into the pool with high pH and alkalinity. Sodium bisulfate (Dry Acid) lowers both the pH and total alkalinity, thus help maintain the water balance for your pool.
Aside Sodium Bisulfate (Dry Acid), Muriatic Acid (Hydrochloric Acid) is also effective in lowering the pH and alkalinity of pools. However, Sodium Bisulfate (Dry Acid) is more preffered because it is easier to use and being less corrosive won't cause burns or damage pool sufaces easily in case of accidental spillage. It is also easy to store, although just lilke any acid requires proper handling and care.
GRANULAR ACTIVATED CARBON (GAC)
Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) is a specific preparation of activated carbon, or activated charcoal. It has been used as a purification agent since antiquity. Activated carbon was used for drinking water filtration in ancient India, and as a multi-use purifier in ancient Egypt.
In modern times, Granular Activated Carbon (GAC), it was introduced to Europe's sugar refining industry in the early 19th century. Today, activated carbon in various forms, including granular, is used in a wide range of industrial, commercial and home applications to remove contaminants.
