Odor in pools depends not to chlorine but to chloramine and chemical compounds, which are formed by improper treatment of pool water. Chloramines are generated by a mixture of two ingredients: chlorine disinfectants and sweat, oil and urine entering the swiming pools by swimmers.


Disinfection with Sodium or/and Calcium Hypochlorite results with odor and irritation problems in swimming pools due to increasing combined chlorine (Chloramine) levels. The high oxidation potential of HypoX® stops the rise of bounded chlorine (chloramines) level, so also stops the shock chlorination requirement.
