Kem-Tek Super Shock Quick, Trichlor Shock


YouTube Video Index – A list of all of my videos:

In this video I cover the use of Trichlor powder shock. I use the Kem-Tek brand which is rated for a 20,000 gallon pool. It is the strongest shock on the market and the most hazardous to use.

I cover some pre-cautions like wearing a mask and carefully pouring the contents into the skimmer and not broadcasting it in the pool (Kem-Tek verified that it is safe to add directly into the pool skimmer with pool running). I also warn users not to add it to less than 1,000 gallons of water (like a bucket).

If your pool has the right Conditioner level in it this product should work very well.

How to Check the Cyanuric Acid (Conditioner) Level :
Instant Conditioner:
Conditioner, granular:

Improper Conditioner levels will make it appear that this chemical is not working. You must have at least 30ppm -50ppm or any chlorine you add will disappear within a matter of hours (Sun's UV rays).

Part of the ingredient in Trichlor is a Stabilizer (Conditioner) much like what is found in the 3" tablets.

Trichlor 3" Chlorinating Tablets:

I suppose overuse of this shock could raise your conditioner level up to undesirable levels but you would have to use a lot of this product within a short period of time. If you use 2-4 bags each month to shock your pool after heavy use or when the chlorine level drops to 1.0 then you won't have any problem. Adding 5 bags a week would not be advised.

Compared to other Sanitizers and shocks I would recommend this product purely on its strength. It is a very powerful chemical. If you want you can watch my videos that cover other forms of Chlorine so you can make a more informed decision.

How Much Chlorine do I Add to My Pool?:
Liquid Chlorine Pool Sanitizer:
Pool Shock, Cal Hypo:
Dichlor Pool Sanitizer:

Last, chlorine by itself will not kill Algae (exception being a Trichlor granuale or tablet scrapped directly on the algae spot. Dichlor dropped directly on Algae also can kill it). Other than that you will need to add an Algaecide along with the Sanitizer to kill the Algae.

For removing Yellow & Mustard Algae:
