aGrandma Posted August 8, 2012 Report Share Posted August 8, 2012 I have a 15,000 gallon gunite inground saltwater pool and in the past I've used regular old chlorine bleach to shock my pool - and it worked really well, but now it's peak swimming season and the child who swims in my pool every day is very sensitive to chlorine so I want to over-do it, but at the same time I had an algae bloom! I checked my water and the chlorine level is very low, but I had to add soda ash first. Now I don't know what kind of chlorine to add to kill the algae and yet be safe enough to swim in. At my local Leslie's they always sell me some special kind of shock because I have a saltwater pool. It's expensive and I'd need a lot of it. Do I need to buy that or - I went to Costco and they are selling Aqua Chem Shock Plus, which is Sodium dichloro-s-triazinetrione. I didn't buy that because it's granular and I'm not sure if that will harm my pool or my swimmer. What do the experts recommend? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
