Many pool owners wonder if Liquid Chlorine right for their pool, and why they should use it instead of more traditional Powder Chlorine. Its primary feature is right in the name: it's liquid! Because of this, Liquid Chlorine dissolves in water almost immediately, and starts cleaning your pool just as quickly. It disperses through your pool water faster than even the fastest-dissolving powder or tablet.
The cost of this speed is efficiency: Liquid Chlorine actually contains less Available Chlorine than Powder Chlorine, meaning that you'll have to use it more often. Furthermore, Liquid Chlorine is unstablized, meaning that it will great increase the pH levels in your pool. To prevent this, a pH decreaser will need to be used in tandem with the chlorine to keep your water's acidity down.
Unfortunately, Liquid Chlorine can't be sold online. That said, it still shines if you need to sanitize your pool in a hurry, or - because of its lower cost - you need to sanitize multiple water sources frequently.
