The Facts About Liquid Chlorine

Can I achieve the same water quality with liquid that I get with tablets?
There is no difference in water quality obtained from gas, liquid or dry product. It is the same elemental chlorine, only administered differently. Pristine water quality is achieved by proper pool chemistry and correct filter operation.

Does liquid provide the calcium protection that tablets provide?
Most water in our region is already hard enough for adequate protection. In fact, excess calcium can cause scaling, which can be damaging to your pool’s systems. In cases where water hardness is too low, it is best to adjust calcium hardness with a separate product.

Does liquid chlorine loose strength over time?
Liquid chlorine will loose strength over time, but it takes 7 months to go to ½ strength under “average conditions”. ACCO chemical tanks generally preserve chlorine in above average conditions.
