What does Shocking a Pool Mean?
You’ve probably heard the term shocking a pool by many pool owners. Shock is a sanitizer that eliminates waste and kills bacteria in your pool. It comes as a package of calcium hypochlorite. Shock can be used as part of your weekly pool cleaning regiment. The chemicals in pool shock can be dangerous and safety equipment should always be used when applying it. Gloves, googles and masks should be used during the application. Our team will provide pool shock services during our weekly pool cleaning services.
