Went to the Leslie's today to buy some liquid chlorine to "shock" the pool since it has not been shocked since opening it a little over a month ago. Our pool builder said to use the super chlorinate feature on our SWG once a month for general pool maintenance. The person at Leslie's advised against liquid chlorine as it would raise my salt level each time I used it and said I should be using the super chlorinate feature on the SWG weekly and using a non-chlorine shock weekly or he'll "have to later sell me a bunch of stuff to solve a problem".
My question is...is this non-chlorine shock ok to use? He sold me something called Fresh 'n Clear and said to use 1.5 lbs weekly on my 15k gallon pool. My goal is to not have to use the super chlorinate feature on the SWG or dump a bunch of chlorine in right now as we use the pool daily and I'm told it will take a couple of days for the chlorine to return to swimable levels.
I like the idea of being able to use this non-chlroine shock so we can continue to swim every day. Does this stuff add anything to the water that will continue to build up and cause me trouble later?
My current numbers are:
Thanks for any insight.
