Keep your swimming pool water crystal clear and free of contaminants with a swimming pool shock treatment from Swimtown Pool Supplies. Pool shock is an essential part of every pool owner's ""toolbox"".
Also called super-chlorinating, shocking a pool helps maintain a safe and sanitary swimming environment by oxidizing pollutants (that make pool water cloudy) and by fighting chloramines (which cause odors and are immune to pool sanitizers.) Chloramines build up in pool water whenever urine or nitrogen waste is introduced into the pool. For the average family that uses their pool several times a week, pool shocking should happen every 2 or 3 weeks. For heavily-used pools, such as a neighborhood or commercial pool, weekly pool shocking should be part of a weekly pool maintenance routine.
