Stabilised chlorine is predominantly used in outdoor pools. In order to stop chlorine being broken down by sunlight it is combined with a stabiliser called Cyanuric acid. Cyanuric acid can be added separately or more commonly it is supplied as stabilised chlorine granules or tablets.
Stabilised Chlorine Granules are a white granular solid and are added to the pool water via manually dosing your pool as and when needed. They have a pH close to neutral (7) so they will have little effect on the pH of the pool water. They are added to the pool water by dissolving the required amount in a bucket of warm water and distributing it around the pool.
Stabilised Chlorine Tablets are provided in a 20 gram and a 200 gram tablet. The 20 gram tablets are designed for spas whilst the 200 gram tablets are designed for larger in-ground pools with a larger volume of water. They are added to the water via a floating dispenser or the skimmer basket. As they are slow dissolving they can be left in the pool, providing a constant chlorine dose at all times. This reduces the amount of work you have to do to maintain an adequate chlorine level. As they are slightly acidic it is important to keep an eye on your alkalinity and pH levels.
Multifunctional Tablets are a type of stabilised chlorine tablets that work in exactly the same way. However these tablets have an algaecide and a flocculant built in allowing you to reduce the chances of algae and cloudiness occurring whilst dosing chlorine.
We supply all these chemicals in a range of different pack sizes. Please contact us for more details.
