Owning a pool doesn’t have to be a huge time investment. Once you understand your pool and know what it needs, everything will fall into place and you will have beautiful, clear water. The most important factor in keeping a pool clean is by adding chlorine to it. Chlorine can be added in many ways, but the most effective and also the most convenient way is to use chlorine tablets.
What Is Chlorine?
You may be wondering what chlorine is and why is it the most important component to a clean pool? Chlorine helps keep swimming pools safe and is the most largely used pool sanitizer all over the world. According to Chemical Safety Facts, chlorine-based disinfectants help keep the water safe by destroying waterborne pathogens that can result in illnesses, such as diarrhea, swimmer’s ear, and skin rashes, including athlete’s foot.
Why Are Chlorine Tablets Your Best Option?
Chlorine tablets are easy to use, and they dispense the chlorine into your pool water at a much steadier and consistent rate compared to the granules option. Using the granules is much more time consuming because you have to measure and estimate the correct amount.
How To Add Chlorine Tablets To Your Pool
Adding the tablets to your water is simple and effortless. You can add them in a few different ways, so it is best to learn your options and pick one that is best for you and your family.
Floating Chlorine Dispenser
These floating dispensers are convenient and low maintenance so many people love this option. While floating around in your pool, the dispenser scatters the dissolving chlorine tablet. The only drawback of this option is they may sometimes get caught in one location and won’t disperse the chlorine evenly. Which may result in a bleaching effect to your pool liner.
A great option is to add the tablet to your skimmer while your filter is running. This will dissolve the tablet much quicker and effectively due to the water moving through the skimmer basket. The clean water is then evenly dispersed throughout the pool.
