Prepping your pool for the spring is important to make sure it’s ready to go when the weather gets nice. Even above-ground swimming pools need some preparation before they are ready to swim in.

Whether you have an in-ground swimming pool or above-ground swimming pool, you’ve probably heard of a pool maintenance item known as pool shock. Pool shock is a powerful pool cleaning agent that people typically use to prepare their pool for opening or to get rid of algae buildup. The main substance in shock is chlorine, however, it’s different than normal chlorine. Pool shock has higher doses of chlorine than the tabs you put in your filter basket. Shock, compared to chlorine tablets, dissolves into your pool almost instantly, whereas tablets disperse chlorine over time.
