Chlorine Levels

One of the most important things to monitor on a weekly basis is the chlorine level in your swimming pool. The chlorine should always remain within 3 – 5 ppm. Chlorine is what keeps the water clean and free from any impurities.

You should always have a few pucks in your skimmer (or floater). If you find that the chlorine level is low, add more pucks to the skimmer.

Weekly Shocking

Weekly shocking is an extremely important part of your maintenance. Shock is what keeps your swimming pools sparkling clear. If you ever have any cloudiness or green in your water, shock is what you will use to get rid of it.

Use the table above to calculate how much Super Shock you should use on a weekly basis.
