Why Do We Prefer Chlorine Tablets?

While both chlorine additives and chlorine tablets are equally effective, we favour the latter for a few reasons. Firstly, they are effortless to use as there is no need to measure or determine when to introduce them to the pool.  Secondly, the chlorine tablets dissolve slowly, which means that the chlorine is consistently released into the pool. The more you use the pool and introduce bacteria, the more the chlorine tablet will be able to keep it under control without any intervention required.


The Benefits of Chlorine for

Swimming Pools.  Chlorine is an affordable option among pool chemicals, and also oneof the most effective for sanitation as it eliminates all bacteria and viruses, minimizing algae growth. Regular vacuuming and skimming is helpful, but chlorine is necessary to eliminate natural bacteria in pools and on surfaces.



The recommended range for chlorine concentration in swimming pools is between 1 and 3 ppm (parts per million). It is crucial that the level does not exceed 3 ppm. Excessive chlorine concentration causes discomfort to eyes, nose, throat, and lungs. To sanitize the pool with chlorine, test the pool water frequently.


Ideal Chlorine Tablets for Your Pool There are two chlorine

tablet sizes available- one inch and three inches. Three-inch tablets prove more user-friendly and economical based on the shopping destination. These tablets are cost-effective, capable of sanitizing up to 5,000 gallons of water each. One-inch chlorine tablets are better suited for use in small pools or hot tubs, where it is easier to control the regulation of chlorine levels in the water.



There are several effective ways to add chlorinetablets to your pool. Just throwing the tablets in is not recommended. Instead, you can use an automatic pool chlorinator to add the precise amount of chlorine necessary, or place a tablet in the skimmer basket while cycling the water. One can also depend on a floating chlorine dispenser.


The advantages of utilising a Floating Chlorine Dispenser.

Utilising a floating chlorine dispenser is one of the simplest methods to distribute chlorine. Simply add a few tablets into the dispenser and allow them to float around the pool. While individuals engage in pool activities like swimming, the dispenser will go around and cleanse the water.


Maintaining a hygienic and secure pool for your loved ones is a continuous task, and using chlorine tablets significantly simplifies the process.
