Our kids have sensitive skin (eczema and such), so we switched to Baquacil. We love it. It's easy to use and test. No alergies from it. fyi...If you switch from a chlorine pool to baquacil, you have to replace the sand in your pump..or it will gum up.

You can ask a pool specialist about some non-chlorine pool-safe chemical. We got it, too.

There is chlorine shock and non chlorine shock. Fo chlorine shock, which is the normal shock, it is the same a s Chlorine but unstabilized, so it will not last in the pool very long.

Most chlorine generators have a setting, or you could shock with chlorine or non chlorine shock.

I have found Proteam's System support product to be very effective against it. Hmmm, What are chlorine "loops"

After non-chlorine shock there is not any waiting time for swimming. Though it is still best to add it in at night, you could add anytime and swim right away.

There is a product called "Pool Anti-Freeze" that is a safe, non-toxic swimming pool cleaner. You can purchase it at the Aqua Superstore online and it is around $10 for a 1quart bottle of concentrated liquid.

Keep residual chlorine down to 1 or 2. Use a non-chlorine (oxygen based) shock.

There are many non-chlorine options for sanitizing pools, both above and in ground. Sodium Bromide is one option that is usually readily available.

When debating on whether or not you should go with a chlorine or non-chlorine pool, it is important to consider the facts outside of salesman's unfulfilling promises. A non-chlorine system costs nearly $3,000 (depending on what you go with), and it is more than double the price for non-chlorine chemicals that non-chlorine advertisers promise you would not have to pay for. If you already hate cleaning dead bugs or animals out of the skimmers, don't forget that in a non-chlorine pool, all those animals and bugs are alive. The walls and steps in the pool are prone to stain because most non-chlorine systems include copper as a substitute for chlorine. Algae blooms are always extremely difficult to handle and get rid of because copper slowly kills algae. SLOWLY. I cannot stress that enough. Copper does NOT kill viruses either. On the other hand, all the bad things you may have heard about chlorine are exaggerated to make everything sound so much WORSE than it really is, so that you can be tricked into putting money in the ground (and in the hands of your sellers) with a non-chlorine pool. Does chlorine have some bad effects? Yes, but those cases are rare. (Otherwise the majority of the world would not be using chlorine pools) Chlorine was designed to kill viruses, bacteria, and algae to keep your pool a safe environment. The few side effects are irritated eyes (have you ever heard of goggles?), irritated skin (that's the sunblock you're using--use a natural alternative like coconut oil), and dry hair (what shampoo do you use? Yeah). It's your decision on whether or not you choose a non-chlorine or chlorine pool, so I suggest you choose wisely because it may be a risk to choose a non-chlorine pool.

A salt water pool is still a chlorine pool, but a weaker form of chlorine if you will! Your PH is affected by the reaction of the "chlorine" with the contamination in the pool. Your salt generated chlorine is working harder to kill the bacteria that it can kill. Therefore there is more "demand" in your pool which will require a more consitant Ph adjustment to keep the chlorine active! The "kill rate" or time it takes to kill, of salt generated chlorine is nearly double that of chlorine. E-coli for instance can live in a chlorine pool for up to 96 hours. A salt pool, as much as 180 hours. YUCK! You should be aware that many common pool bacteria have grown immune to chlorine and salt generated chlorine! Chlorine or salt does not kill Cryptosporidium or Girardia! Science has moved well beyond chemical additon to swimming pools. Check the World Health Organizations- Healthy Pool Guidelines! Ultraviolet is the way to go! Jon La

The easiest way is to use 4 lb of non-chlorine shock. Hatawa

Same as Chlorinated pools: 80-120 ppm. A salt pool is the same as a non- salt pool. Only difference is the chlorine is made in the system thru automation/mechanically. With the addition of swimming pool salt to the water it in turn goes thru the device and returns to the pool as chlorine. Otherwise you add the chlorine manually. k

evaporation and/or dilution evaporation: chlorine will evaporate from a pool fastest on a hot, sunny day. leave the cover off for a bit. dilution: add clean non-chlorinated water to the pool to dilute the chlorine concentration. do not illegally dispose of or dump chlorinated water to make room for the clean water!

wait until the chlorine level drops to 2.0-4.0 ppm. In some pools that could be up to 8 hours or 3or longer in others depending on the size of the pool and the usual chlorine demand of the pool If the pool is being shocked with a non-chlorine shock treatment swimmers may re-enter the water as soon as 15 minutes after shocking the pool.

Simple one actually. You use Potassium Monopersulfate, more commonly known as Non-Chlorine Shock. Applied to the pool at the rate of 2 lbs. Per 10,000 gal.. Repeat daily for 2 to 3 days and there you go. Chlorine neutralized. Sorry, I can't agree with that answer. Potassium monopersulfate is a non chlorine shock used to oxidize chloramines. If you have too high levels of chlorine in your pool you can neutralize some by adding sodium thyosulfate.

yes pristine blue is a non chlorine pool and spa care its good for the eyes and skin and very easy to maintain

Sanitizing your swimming poolThe question seems to run together and be confusing. I believe what is being asked is "What is the easiest way to sanitize a pool? Chlorine, Eco Smart or a Natures 2 system. None of the above methods are difficult to use on a swimming pool. Chlorine is currently the most popular method. If you add the chlorine manually adding an automatic chlorinator will make it easier. You will still need to test your swimming pool water on a regular basis to monitor how much chlorine you will actually need to use. The Eco Smarte system used Natural Oxygen and Ionic Copper to sanitize your pool. This sytem will require no chlorine, but you still must monitor the level of copper in your swimming pool. You will on occasion need to use a non-chlorine shock and non-metal based algeacides.The Natures 2 system is a cartridge based system that will help reduce the amount of chlorine that you will use. Again on this one you must check your water balance regularly and change your cartridge at least every 6 months.

NOT ALL POOLS NEED CHLORINE. Salt Water pools are cleaner and do not harm the environment. I too am allergic to chlorine. It affects more than just my eyes. When I swim in pools with chlorine, I get upper respiratory and bladder infections. I too am having difficulty locating a non-chlorine public alternative. Because chlorine is cheaper than salt and most people aren't allergic to the levels used in public swimming pools; most municipalities choose that option. What I would recommend is that you call the local Parks & Recreations Office and ask them if there are any public salt water pools.

no chlorine is a non-metal

No. chlorine is non metallic.

Actually you add more chlorine, I would recommend 12 1/2% liquid. You need to reach the breakthrough superchlorination point to oxidize the contaminants creating the chloramine or combined chlorine. You can also use potassium monopersulfate which is a non-chlorine oxidizer and will allow you to use the pool sooner as it will only free up the chlorine already in the pool. Depending on several factors you may need to add some chlorine after using the PMS.

No There are newer "Non-chlorine bleaches" with no chlorine

Yes, chlorine is a non-metal. This is because it is not a metal buy neither is it a metaloid. So yes chlorine is a non metal.

Chlorine is a nonmetal

Chlorine by itself is non-combustible.
