If you own a
residential pool in Tampa, FL, watch this video for some tips on how to maintain a healthy chemical
balance in your pool. The video begins by explaining the process known
as “shocking,” or superchlorinating, the pool. This involves
adding a large dose of chlorine to the pool two to four times a month.
This helps to kill off any harmful bacteria and algae which may have built
up in the water. It also helps to dissolve and clear away debris from
sunscreen, sweat, leaf litter, plants, urine, and other substances which
may have polluted the water.
The presenter stresses that daily chlorination is insufficient. In order
to keep your pool free from organic waste matter, you should shock it
on a regular basis. The video explains that, left untreated, the organic
waste can cause red eye and unpleasant odors.
