• “I just float TAB’s and I don’t need anything else!”

    May 18, 2013
  • TABS contain cyanuric acid. TABS are designed to raise your Total Chlorine to proper levels but are NOT designed to replace your Free Chlorine levels when needed. This means you are danger of swimming in water that takes 30 min to kill bacteria. This means your are swimming in the live yuck washed off all the peoples bodies you are swimming with including yours and those germs are living for up to 30min afte making contact with your TAB's chlorine.

    In this scenario we suggest wearing ear plugs, eye goggles and learning to hold your breath well not allowing any water into the mouth. Or you can use Liquid or Granular shock when needed to keep your Free Chlorine levels correct so germs are killed in under a second.
