Can you add pH up and chlorine at the same time?
Keeping this in view, does adding chlorine increase pH?
Using liquid chlorine raises the pH of the water. Liquid chlorine does not raise pH. When added to water, liquid chlorine (which has a pH of 13) makes HOCl (hypochlorous acid – the killing form of chlorine) and NaOH (sodium hydroxide), which raises pH. So the net effect on pH is zero (or almost zero).
Subsequently, question is, how soon can you add chlorine after acid? It is safe to swim once your chlorine levels are around 5 ppm or after 24 hours. It is always best to test first! Muriatic acid can create a hot spot of acid in the water that could potentially burn or irritate your skin. It is best to wait 30 minutes after adding it to your pool.
Also to know is, can I add pool chemicals at the same time?
Chlorine shock + Sequester Agent: Chlorine shock will also disrupt stain & scale chemicals, aka chelators or sequestering agents, if added at the same time. Add Stain & Scale chemicals a day before or several days after, shocking a pool.
Can you shock your pool and add stabilizer at the same time?
You can even get it mixed in with chlorine tablets or sticks, called trichlor, and in chlorine shock, called dichlor. These combination products are referred to as stabilized chlorine because the stabilizer is mixed right in with the sanitizer, saving you the trouble of measuring and adding them separately.
