Thread: Instant liquid chlorine powder

    Instant liquid chlorine powder

    Like most here I have experimented with various chlorine products until finally I pretty much use liquid chlorine (Clorox bleach) purchased from Costco. This certainly does the job I need it to but the mountain of plastic bottles gets a little old. The first couple of years of owning an inground pool I just used stabilized Di-Chlor until I discovered the CYA problem. I live in Dallas and there is not enought rainfall to wash CYA out of the pool so it readily builds up. Then I went through my Cal-Hypo phase, same problem, different chemical, hence the bleach.

    Then I came across this:http://www.poolproducts.com/SPP/prod...family_id=2861
    Although I'm not finding a lot of info on the product it seems to indicate that it is powdered chlorine without any other "attached" ingredient. Has anybody used this, and if so what do you think about it?

    Thanks

    More smoke, mirrors, and misdirection. You can see the manual/info sheet here, and its 73% Cal-Hypo.

    Thanks for that.
    I didnt think they could produce chlorine in a dry form without another "attached" chemical.
    You're absoultely right about the misdirection.

    You could use lithium hypochlorite, but it is ridiculously expensive.

    Thanks for posting. I actually just saw this product in a catalog today and was wondering about it myself! Should have known it was too good to be true.
