Why Using Stabilized Chlorine Is a Great Idea?

We all know that chemicals are added to pool water in order to keep them clean and maintained. Chlorine is the most known and obvious chemical used in pools. But, what many people don’t know is that if chlorine is not used with a pool stabilizer, you could be wasting money, time, and also risking your health.

What is Pool Stabilizer?

Pool stabilizer is also sometimes called pool conditioner, chlorine stabilizer, or cyanuric acid (CYA). Its purpose is to stabilize the chlorine in your pool water, so the sanitizer lasts longer. This will ultimately help keep your water clean for a longer period of time.

This is especially important if your pool is outside and exposed to the sun’s ultraviolet or UV rays. When UV rays from the sun hit the water, chlorine starts to evaporate, leaving very little free chlorine in your pool water.

So, if you are not using a pool stabilizer, your pool’s chlorine will be almost completely gone in a couple of hours. In fact, Sciencing states that ultraviolet rays can reduce chlorine by up to 90 % in two hours. This is really important to understand because that will increase your risk of growing bacteria and algae in your pool.

How To Use A Pool Stabilizer?

You can find pool stabilizers as liquid or granule form.

There is also Stabilized Chlorine, in which the stabilizer is mixed in with the sanitizer. These options are what we highly recommend because it is the most convenient and worry-free option.

Benefits of Stabilized Chlorine

  • Hassle-Free - One product with two chemicals.
  • Convenient - Usually won’t need to add any extra cyanuric acid later.
  • Time Saver - No measuring or adding the chlorine and cyanuric acid separately.
  • Money Saver - Your pool will need less chlorine.

At Iopool, We offer two, easy to use, Stabilized Chlorine products

  1. Jumbo Tabs - Slow-dissolving stabilized chlorine tablets;
  2. Shimmer N’ Shock - Quick-dissolving and fast-acting for super chlorination.

Your best bet is to use a pool stabilizer in the form of Stabilized Chlorine. You don't want to risk not having enough pool stabilizer or chlorine in your water since if your stabilizer is too low or not there at all, the chlorine will not last long and you will end up spending more money on chlorine and your pool will not stay clean.
