Product Information

Description

This is a case of twelve 1 pound bags of chlorine that is used for effective super chlorination. This calcium hypochlorite product is a dry granular that is fast dissolving. Calcium hypochlorite destroys organic waste, controls algae and kills bacteria.

Active Ingredient of this Omega Shock: 68% Calcium Hypochlorite and 32% Other Ingredients.

Directions for Adding Omega Shock to your Pool:

Shock should be used at start-up, once a week or as necessary to maintain your pool chemistry. First, check and adjust pH between 7.2 and 7.6. Add this product when no bathers are present. Scatter 1 or 2 ounces of shock per 1,000 gallons of water to yield an available chlorine residual of 5 to 10 ppm. Do not enter pool until the chlorine residual has dropped to a level of 2 ppm as determined by a suitable test kit.

Product Features

  • 68 % Calcium Hypochlorite
  • Strong oxidizing agent
  • Can be used with chlorine and salt water pools

Cloudy Water

Cloudy Water CausesSolutionPreventive Measures
High pH Bring your pH into the desired range of 7.4 - 7.6 ppm. Maintain a proper pH level by using Haviland pH Reducer.
Dirty Filter Check filtration system. Backwash if necessary. Use Haviland Liquid Filter Cleaner each spring and fall.
Low Free Chlorine Residual Bring free chlorine into desired range of 1 - 3 ppm. Shock if necessary. Maintain a proper level using one of the Haviland chlorinating products.
High Total Alkalinity Test total alkalinity and adjust accordingly Lower total alkalinity to their ideal levels using Haviland pH Reducer.

Green Water

Green Water CausesSolutionPreventive Measures
Green Algae (hazy water) Shock the pool using chlorine based shock at 1 lb. per 10,000 gallons. Let circulate overnight and then adjust free chlorine residual to 1 - 3 ppm. Add Haviland Algae Kil 50 or Haviland Combat 60 every other week at a rate of 6 oz. per 10,000 gallons
Copper in Fill water (clear water) Use Haviland Rust-N-Scale at a rate of 6 oz. per 10,000 gallons. Let circulate overnight before adjusting chlorine or pH. Add Haviland Rust-N-Scale every other week at a rate of 6 oz. per 10,000 gallons to prevent stains due to copper in the water.

Reddish Brown Water

Red/Brown Water CausesSolutionPreventive Measures
Dissolved Iron or maganese in water Adjust pH to 7.4 - 7.6 range. Use Haviland Rust-NScale. Let pump run continuously until clear. Add Haviland Rust-N-Scale every other week at a rate of 6 oz. per 10,000 gallons.

Eye & Skin Irritation

Eye Irritation CausesSolutionPreventive Measures
Combined Chlorine (chloramines) level too high Shock the pool using one of the Haviland shock treatments. Let circulate overnight and then adjust free chlorine residual to 1 - 3 ppm. Shock treat every other week, after heavy use or rain. Test for free chlorine residual daily
pH level too high or too low Adjust pH by using Haviland pH Increaser or Haviland pH Reducer to bring pH level to ideal range of 7.4 - 7.6 ppm. Test pH level daily and maintain pH in 7.4 - 7.6 range.

Chlorine Odor

Chlorine Odor CausesSolutionPreventive Measures
Combined Chlorine (chloramine) level too high. The cause is NOT too much chlorine but not enough free available chlorine Shock the pool using chlorine based shock at 1 lb. per 10,000 gallons. Let circulate overnight and then adjust free chlorine residual to 1 - 3 ppm. Test pH level daily and maintain pH in 7.4 - 7.6 range.

Calcium Scale Formation

Calcium Scale CausesSolutionPreventive Measures
pH too high/Total Alkalinity too high Add Haviland pH Reducer to bring pH into 7.4 - 7.6 ppm range and to bring total alkalinity down to 100 - 175 ppm. Maintain pH level in 7.4 - 7.6 range. Maintain total alkalinity level in 100 - 175 ppm
Calcium Hardness level too high If hardness level is too high, some water may have to be drained. Add Haviland Rust-N-Scale per label directions. Add Haviland Rust-N-Scale every other week at a rate of 6 oz. per 10,000 gallons.

Corrosion of Metal Parts

Corrosion CausesSolutionPreventive Measures
pH too low/Total Alkalinity too low Add Haviland pH Increaser to bring pH into 7.4 - 7.6 ppm range. Maintain pH level in 7.4 - 7.6 range. Maintain total alkalinity level in 100 - 175 ppm.
Calcium Hardness level too low Add Haviland Water Hardness Increaser to raise the calcium to 180 -275 ppm. Maintain calcium level at 180 -275 ppm.
