Oxidizers are used to shock the water and chemically destroy the organic contaminants introduced by bathers and the environment. Oxidation restores water clarity and eliminates the main cause of eye, skin and nose irritation.
Routine oxidation can often be overlooked as a part of pool maintenance. Many times pool owners begin oxidation after the problem exists. However, a much better practice is to look at oxidation as a preventive rather than a cure. This will not only save time and money but will prevent problems before they occur, thereby minimising pool owner frustration.
