Rapid Shock 500g

These non-stabilised chlorine granules are ideal for commissioning new spas or regular oxidisation/shock dosing or hot tubs and above ground pools.

 

Swimming Pool Application Instructions

 

  1. Maintain pH levels within the ideal range 7.2-7.6 and free chlorine residuals between 1-3mg/l (ppm). If the levels are not in this range, adjust.
  2. Shock or oxidising procedures are recommended either weekly or fortnightly with a maximum 10mg/l (ppm) of free chlorine for a full shock treatment.
  3. If the water temperature is 20°C or higher and water depth at least 4ft deep, this product can be carefully broadcast directly over the pool surface. Always check the wind direction before broadcasting. Alternatively, pre-dissolve this product in a clean plastic container at a maximum rate of 100g of product in 2.2 gallons (10 litres) of warm water. Stir well to ensure the product is fully dissolved. Add the resulting solution to the pool whilst the pump(s) are turned 'on', preferably near the water inlets to aid distribution.
  4. Repeat dose/application if necessary to achieve the desired level.
  5. After using this product pool water may become temporarily cloudy, so keep the filtration pump running until it clears.
  6. Allow the chlorine level to drop below 5 mg/l (ppm) before bathing recommences, and in any event, wait for at least 30 minutes before bathing recommences.
