Chlorine is the most important factor when sanitizing and keeping your pool clean and germ-free. It can be found in tablets, granules, and stick forms. Chlorine tablets are the most commonly used and most efficient sanitizer for pools because of their ease of use. They are designed to gradually dissolve and slowly release chlorine into your water. Sometimes, people get confused about where to apply chlorine tablets. This is very understandable because there are right and wrong ways to apply them to your pool.
NEVER just throw them into your pool water. This will cause them to dissolve on the floor and it can damage and create a permanent bleach stain to your liner or concrete.
ALWAYS Add Chlorine Tablets To Your Skimmer, Floating Dispenser, or Automatic Chlorinator
Adding chlorine tablets to your skimmer is one of the best places to dispense chlorine and it is also the easiest. There is no hassle and no extra equipment necessary.
With a constant stream of water running through the skimmer most of the day, it offers a great spot to distribute chlorine. It also will spread the chlorine reasonably evenly.
Floating dispensers are also very simple to use. You just add the necessary tablets to the dispenser and let it float throughout the pool. It will release the chlorine to your water as the tablets dissolve.
One issue is that it may get stuck in one spot of the pool and end up not spreading the chlorine evenly.
The most effective way to chlorinate your pool is with an automatic chlorinator. You simply put the chlorine tablets into the chlorinator and set it to the chlorine level needed. This lets you add a precise amount of chlorine to your pool which will limit any guessing.
You will need to purchase this equipment, but it lets you have direct control over the feed rate, and you will not waste any chlorine.
