Is there anything I can put in my pool instead of Shock?
Instead of a chlorine system, my husband and I have switched to a pool ionizer. It is an upfront investment of about $900, but we have spent less than $20 on chemicals this year. In the long run, it is a fantastic investment, because you only need to replace one part every 2-3 years at a cost of about $130. Also, instead of lots of chemicals, our little boy swims in basically mineral water. It uses copper & silver ions to purify the water, using NASA technology that is utilized in all gov't pools and on the space shuttles to keep water clean.
We just use plain old bleach, it odes the same thing as Shock.
What ratio do you use for the bleach?
