Regular shock-chlorination is always a critical step in keeping the pool clear and clean. However, it is essential to do this on a regular basis since swimmers and the surrounding environment add pollution to the pool that must be eradicated in order to prevent problems such as algae, grey or uncomfortable water.

Preventing algae is key to ensuring comfort and fun in your pool. Even if your pool is cautiously maintained, algae will continue to proliferate. This is why you will need an anti-algae product such as ACTI Algaecide. This product will supplement your normal sanitization program and will prevent algae spreading in the pool. ACTI Algaecide should be added after a shock treatment.

These are not the only products in our ACTI range, there are plenty of other pool water treatment products that will help you to solve or prevent specific issues. Please check our range of products.

But bear in mind that the best way to prevent any issues is to test your pool water regularly. Also, do not forget to ask the advice of your local pool professional.
