the 4 step system

The Aqua Chem 4 Step System is the best way to maintain sparkling blue swimming pool water and prevent problems before they start: ​ 1) Balance, 2) Chlorinate, 3) Shock, 4) Algaecide. ​ When combined with regular water testing, you'll save time and money by avoiding costly problems.


"Chlorinating" or "Sanitizing" your pool means adding a chlorine sanitizer to the pool water.
The Benefits of Chlorine

Simply put, Sanitizing your pool refers to killing or inactivating potentially harmful microorganisms. ​ You’re controlling the growth of microorganisms to help prevent disease introduced into the pool such as bacteria, viruses, and protozoa. ​ Not to worry, when you regularly chlorinate your pool with a chlorine sanitizer, you kill these pathogens that can harm swimmers and turn your sparkling pool into a green swamp. ​ For proper sanitation, your “free available chlorine” level should always fall between 1 to 4 ppm.

When to Chlorinate

When your pool's "free available" level is outside of the correct range of 1 to 4 ppm, it's necessary to add chlorine to your pool water. ​ Aqua Chem's 6-Way Test Strips and Smart Strips accurately measure this level. ​ Testing at least weekly is crucial in keeping your pool water free of undesirable contaminants. 1 to 4 ppm must be maintained at all times. ​

How to Chlorinate

Aqua Chem's chlorine products allow you to chlorinate continuously through a floating dispenser, skimmer or automatic chlorinator. ​ They are slow dissolving and contain built-in stabilizer to protect the chlorine from sunlight burn-off.

Fun Fact​ – Swimmers add sweat, urine, suntan lotion, and other contaminants that require the use of more chlorine. ​ A medium size dog is the equivalent of 50 swimmers! ​
