Swimming Pool Glossary: Trichlor

Advantages of Trichlor
Trichlor is a tablet that is used to clean your pool. In fact, it gives your pool 90% of its available chlorine content. Made out of stabilizing organic chlorine, trichlor won't break down after being exposed to the UV rays given off by the sun.

Disadvantages of Trichlor
While trichlor is an effective pool cleaner, it can't be used in combination with a pool skimmer. Because the trichlor tablet has a low pH effect, it could cause your pool skimmer to corrode. Trichlor also must be disposed through a floating feeder unit, which some people find to be annoying.
