What should I do with my old chemicals after installation?

It is important to dispose of pool chemicals safely.

First, what to keep?

You will continue needing salt and magnesium. On occasion you may need flocculant.

Your pool automation subscription includes the monitoring and alert for when you need to add salt. It’s best to add it as soon as you get the notification so you don’t forget!

What to lose?

Please dispose of any copper-base algaecide safely or ask our installation technician to remove them for you during your installation.

Dispose of any old liquid chlorine down the sewer. It is not effective after four months because it decomposes. Old chlorine converts to caustic soda solution with time.

You no longer need stabiliser or buffer. They will need to be disposed of safely also.
