The heat breaks down the chlorine very fast. It is recommended you use bromine tablets in pools with heaters.

A quality grade of chlorine or one that would be recommended by your local pool store (not the local hardware big box stores). The chlorine can be either in tab form or liquid form (at 12.5% in strength for liq.) The higher the listing for free chlorine on th elabel the better.
