If Trichlor Sanitizer is
Used in a Vinyl Lined Pool:
DO NOT allow the pH of the pool to drop below 7.4.
DO NOT allow chlorine levels to exceed 3 ppm using Trichlor sanitizer.
DO NOT shock or super chlorinate your vinyl lined pool with Trichlor. Alkaline sanitizers (hypochlorite products)
DO NOT continuously heat your vinyl lined pool to temperatures above 82 degrees Fahrenheit. Hot water will dissolve
Trichlor sanitizer at a faster rate making the water very aggressive to the vinyl liner.
DO NOT allow true total carbonate alkalinity to drop below 90 ppm when acidic Trichlor is used as the sanitizing agent.
Alkalinity range 90-125 ppm.
DO NOT forget to correct for cyanuric acid level when measuring true total alkalinity. True total alkalinity equals measured
total alkalinity minus one third measured cyanuric acid level.
Failure to limit and control cyanuric acid level could result in the following:
1. low alkalinity
DO NOT add trichlor to a floating dispenser and ALWAYS continuously run the water circulation system 24 hours a day
during the pool season when Trichlor is used.
2. pH drop or bounce when Trichlor is added
3. increased chlorine demand (more Trichlor is needed)
4. aggressive water
5. bleached and/or wrinkled vinyl liner
It should be understood that the absorbtion of water is a function of the PVC. However, the absorbtion will not take
place with proper care. It should also be understood that the affects of the chemicals on the vinyl are cumulative and
less is best when adding chemicals to your vinyl liner pool.
