Swimming Pool Maintenance

Stabilising Chlorine

Basic Idea

Sunlight breaks down swimming pool chlorine. There are two main ways to avoid this happening. One is to prevent the sun from reaching the pool water – a good reason to have indoor swimming pools. The other main way is to use cyanuric acid, which helps prevent the breakdown of pool chlorine, and is known as a stabiliser for that reason. A stabilised pool can reduce chlorine consumption by 50%, and for the average pool owner is much cheaper than building a roof to keep sunlight off the pool. Besides, sunlight can help warm the pool and the pool area, so may be a desirable thing.
