While there are many different reasons that people find to shock their pool, the true purpose of shocking your pool is to ride the water of organic compounds that irritate swimmers and bathers and ties up chlorine to prevent it from performing its task as a sanitizer.
Natural Chemistry created a unique blend of enzymes that eliminate and permanently prevent non-living contaminant buildup. This SmartZyme technology binds to non-living organic contaminants and reduces them to smaller and smaller parts until they are oxidized by the sanitizer or reduced to water and air. They have now come up with a safe way to shock your pool. Their Salt Shock Oxidizer is a powerful potassium monopersulfate based oxidizer. It not only eliminates organic contaminants to help keep your pool clean and your water crystal clear, but it also reduces odors, eye irritation, and allows you to swim as quickly as 15 minutes after the pool is shocked.
