  • About this item

    SaltShock Swimming Pool Sanitizer is Specially Formulated for Saltwater Pools. Dual action Salt Shock is designed to enhance saltwater and leaves no cloudy residual or calcium buildup that damages cell plates or fouls filters. 1 lb. of this swimming pool shock treats up to 20,000 gallons with salt levels at 3000 PPM or higher. Using the "boost" or "superchlorination" button on your in line generator will cause the circulation pump to run for 24 hr. while maximizing the amp usage on the generator. This can cost as much as $15-$20 in energy to slowly raise the chlorine level one time and a slow rise in the chlorine level can cause an unhealthy mutation of chloramines or the used chlorine molecules. SaltShock Swimming Pool Sanitizer is fast acting, fast dissolving and leaves no residual nor does this swimming pool salt contain fillers that cause the CYA levels to escalate to the point where water has to be drained to re-balance the chemistry.

    SaltShock Swimming Pool Sanitizer:

    Why use Salt Shock over other shock brands? Salt Shock swimming pool salt has no fillers and has no cloudy affect. There are no fluctuations in the calcium or cyanuric acid (CYA, stabilizer, conditioner) levels that will cause you to drain water to re-balance the chemistry. Extend the life of the pool equipment by eliminating the use of the "boost" button that causes 24 hr circulation run time on the pump and system. Using Salt Shock with in-line chlorine generators will reduce the buildup of calcium on the cell plates and in the water. Salt Shock can reduce the pH of the water by as much as 1 ppm with every application which is highly beneficial due to the normally high pH effect chlorine generation brings. Swimming can resume within 8 hr. after shocking with Salt Shock. To maintain clean, healthy pool water, it is recommended that the pool be shocked weekly when the water temperature exceeds 70 degrees or after a heavy bather load. For saltwater pools, Salt Shock is the perfect choice.

    • SaltShock Swimming Pool Sanitizer also reduces the pH of the water thus eliminating the constant need for the use of muriatic acid which is hazardous to handle.
    • Gain the benefits that Salt Shock swimming pool salt brings in both oxidation and burnout while enjoying the crystal clear purified water effect.

    description says total weight is 9 lbs, but total weight is only 2 lbs which is insane. That's $25/lb.
