Shocking your pool water is a needed step for proper pool maintenance. Shocks or oxidizers chemically destroy organic contaminants to help restore water clarity, maintain water balance and also eliminate the main cause of odour and eye irritation. This is the second part of the BioGuard 3-Step Pool Care System and the BioGuard Smart PAK program.
*such as perspiration, suntan lotions, hair sprays, body oils, urine, pet dander, and cosmetics.
No! Shocking should be part of your pool maintenance. While it does help with troubleshooting, when part of a routine it provides the correct chemical balance that your pool water needs to have and keep clear, odour-free water that doesn’t irritate your eyes and skin.
