It really does not matter if the tablets are dissolving slow, Is what matters is the amount of Chlorine Ph and CYA in your pool. chlorine between 1.0-3.0 up to 5.0 O.K. when heavy use but adds dramatically to CYA PPM PH 7.2-7.6 CYA between 50-80 PPM Kenny Kummer 801-232-5893 Well there are two possibilities here the first and simplest is that the water is just too freakin cold. The colder the water the slower the tablets will dissolve. So where in the summer your tables would go in maybe 3 days when the water temperature is in the 50's it may take 2 weeks to dissolve. The other possibility is that the chlorinator is clogged where you cannot see it. In an off line chlorinator (where the water passes through a small tube tapped into the pipe. As the tubing gets older and the chlorine has a chance to oxidize it the inner diameter will be reduced in turn reducing the volume of water moving through the feeder and slowing the erosion. On an in line unit it can get clogged internally and you would not be able to access the problem. This is assuming you have a Hayward CL-200 in line or CL-220 off line unit. There are a lot of other manufactures of chlorinators that are all made differently so I would need to know the specific make and model to list other possible problems.

What makes a pool liner brittle?

The sun and the chlorine are the worst things for a liner but there is not much you can do about that try dissolving the chlorine in a bucket of water before adding to pool it does help some but as i said there is not much to stop it.


Will the chlorine tablet you dropped into the pool not the filter canister put a hole in your liner?

Chemicals, especially chlorine, should not be allowed to sit on a pool's liner for any period of time. This will cause bleaching and could damage your liner.


What size chlorine tabs for swimming pools works best?

Depends on what the chlorine demand is for your pool. 1 inch tablets are not compressed as hard as 3 inch tabs and skimmer sticks. If your pool requires more chlorine you may want to use 1 inch tablets. If it has a low chlorine demand skimmer sticks may be all your need. Skimmer sticks are the hardest compressed and slower dissolving.


What kind of change occurs when salt dissolves in waater?

Dissolution, meaning dissolving into a liquid form. It is a chemical reaction that begins with water covering a corner of the salt. The corner chlorine starts to leave the crystal and water bonds form. As the chlorine leaves more water molecules are left behind. The chlorine becomes fully solvated then the salt does the same.

Dissolving palladium (in powder form) in aqua regia (with some chlorine bubbling). Note that aqua regia is very corrosive and dangerous.


Is salt dissolved in water a chemical or physical change?

Dissolving salt in water is an example of a physical change. Although the ions of sodium and chlorine separate when the salt dissolves, no chemical reaction takes place.


What is free chlorine in a pool?

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.


Is dissolving zinc in acid a physical or chemical change?

Dissolving zinc in acid is a chemical change. It really isn't being dissolved, it is reacting with the acid to form new substances. For example, if you react zinc with hydrochloric acid, the products will be zinc chloride and hydrogen gas. The zinc seems to dissolve, but it is actually combining with the chlorine in the hydrochloric acid. Zn + 2HCl ---> ZnCl2 + H2

What type of element is salt water?

Nothing about salt water is an element. Water is the compound H2O (2 Hydrogens bonded with an Oxygen). Salt is the compound NaCl (Sodium and Chlorine bonded). Together they form a solution with the water dissolving the salt.


How do you get high free chlorine to match total chlorine?

Total Chlorine = Free Chlorine + Combined Chlorineor, put another wayTotal Chlorine - Free Chlorine = Combined ChlorineFree Chlorine is the chlorine that is doing its job.Combined Chlorine is the chlorine that has combined with contaminants such as nitrogen. It is ineffective as a sanitizer and it is noxious.Total Chlorine is the total of these two levels.To eliminate the Combined Chlorine (making all the chlorine in the pool Free Chlorine) you must shock the pool to remove the contaminants. You must reach "Breakpoint Chlorination", which is the addition of chlorine to your pool equivalent to the Combined Chlorine level times 10.example:Total Chlorine = 1.5ppmFree Chlorine = 1.0ppmSo, the Combined Chlorine (the difference between the two tests) is .5ppmBreakpoint chlorination, in this example would be .5ppm X 10 = 5ppm. So, in this example, you would add enough chlorine to your pool to raise the chlorine level up by 5 parts per million.

What is chlorine Analyzer?

A Chlorine Analyzer analyzes free chlorine or total chlorine in water to monitor chlorine dosage. It is frequently used in water and waste water plants to control chlorine dosage.


Can you swim in pool hat has a normal chlorine level but the free chlorine level is high?

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.

What is better chlorine or salt for a swimming pool?

Salt water pools are chlorine pools, the difference is that a fresh water pool has chlorineadded by the operator, while a salt water pool has a chlorine generator that electronically creates chlorine while the filtration system is running I does this by separating chlorine gas out of the salt in the water and dissolving it back into the water. most salt water chlorinator pools use common salt or sodium chloride, which is the same as the salt found in sea water, only at a much lower concentration. A new system is available now that that uses magnesium chloride and sodium chloride, the advantage with this is that it is not harmful to use the backwash for watering the garden and it has a therapeutic effect on swimmers.
