If the available chlorine is the same percentage then they are the same.
34% available chlorine-30%-40%
There are 3 components to the chlorine level in the pool. Total chlorine, Free chlorine, and Combined chlorine. Free chlorine is the chlorine available for sanitation.
There is 3 measurements of chlorine in a pool or spa. Total chlorine, combined chlorine, and free available chlorine. Free available chlorine is the good chlorine that is active in the pool killings germs and algae. Combined chlorine is chlorine is basically chlorine that was once active but has killed germs or bacteria and is now inactive in the pool. Total chlorine is free available and combined chlorine added together. If your combined chlorine is higher than free available chlorine then the water needs to be shocked to eliminate the combined chlorine. But be careful here. If you don't reach what's called break point you will only add to the combined chlorine. There are products on the market which will only remove combined chlorine without effecting your free available chlorine if you are unsure about reaching breakpoint. Hope this helps.
Just shock it to break point and your at free chlorine.
chlorine present in free or bound form, or in both forms. In water treatment, free/residual chlorine is the amount of chlorine that is still available to do its job of disinfection. Bound chlorine is chlorine that has been used up. It is still in the water, but it is no longer available for disinfection.
Free or residual chlorine is chlorine that is present in the form of hypochlorous acid, hypochlorite ions or as dissolved elemental chlorine. Bound chlorine is that fraction of the total chlorine that is present in the form of chloramines or organic chloramines. Total chlorine is that chlorine that is present in free or bound form, or in both forms. In water treatment, free/residual chlorine is the amount of chlorine that is still available to do its job of disinfection. Bound chlorine is chlorine that has been used up. It is still in the water, but it is no longer available for disinfection.
Usually it relates to hypochlorites content in the product. Available chlorine is the quantity of chlorine that can hypothetically be produced by reaction of bleaching powder with hydrochloric acid. Greater the available chlorine is - greater oxidation ability the bleaching powder has. For example, available chlorine 5% means that fixed amount of something can be oxidized by (100/5)X=20X grams of bleaching powder and the same can be done with only X grams of pure chlorine.
Free Chlorine is the Chlorine which is free to do its work in the pool, as opposed to Combined Chlorine which is chlorine that has combined with contaminants and is tied up and ineffective as a sanitizer in the pool. Sometimes you will see it abbreviated as FAC, which stands for Free Available Chlorine.
Total Residual Chlorine (TRC) is the total of free available residual chlorine and combined (bound) residual chlorine. The amount of measurable chlorine remaining after treating water with chlorine i.e. amount of chlorine left in water after the chlorine demand has been satisfied
It is a source of available chlorine.
You can't. Chlorine is a dangerous, corrosive, poisonous gas and is not available in balloons.
