Aqua Easy Shock is a granular unstabilized chlorine (also known as Lithium Hypochlorite) used for superchlorination (or shock treating) of swimming pool water.

Aqua Easy Shock Benefits:

Shocking is also known as super chlorinating. It’s a way to keep pool water safe and clean by adding three to five times the normal amount of chlorine or other chemical sanitizer to the pool water to drastically raise the chlorine level for a short time. This will help to remove ineffective chlorine amounts, kills bacteria and anything organic in the pool, and boosts the availability of effective chlorine. Shocking the pool is an important regular maintenance step with which every pool owner should be familiar. 

Chlorine kills bacteria though a fairly simple chemical reaction. The chlorine solution you pour into the water breaks down into many different chemicals, including hypochlorous acid (HOCl) and hypochlorite ion (OCl-). Both kill microorganisms and bacteria by attacking the lipids in the cell walls and destroying the enzymes and structures inside the cell, rendering them oxidized and harmless. The difference between HOCl and OCl- is the speed at which they oxidize. Hypochlorous acid is able to oxidize the organisms in several seconds, while the hypochlorite ion may take up to 30 minutes.
