Liquid Chlorine (SODIUM HYPOCHLORITE).

This form of chlorine is made in a concentrated from especially for pool use.   It contains between 10% and 16% available chlorine.  Liquid chlorine may be poured directly into the pool but it should be
distributed over as wide an area of the pool as is practical.
Avoid contact of liquid chlorine with clothes and delicate tissue.
Dry Chlorine (CALCIUM HYPOCHLORITE)
This type of chlorine is available in either granular or tablet forms.
It usually contains 70% available chlorine.
The granular form dissolves readily while the tablets usually take several hours.
Calcium hypochlorite contains an insoluble ingredient that leaves a residue in the pool.
The granular and tablet form should be introduced in a floating chlorine dispenser.

Dry Stable Chlorine

This type of chlorine is available in both granular and tablet form.

Its principle advantage is that it contains a stabilizing factor that holds the chlorine for extended periods.

This Action provides prolonged disinfecting activity.

Another advantage is that there is little or no addition of alkalinity to the water.
