Chlorine Tablets Explained! OURS vs. THEIRS!

Shopping for chlorine tablets can be confusing and overwhelming. We're here to set the record straight and help you understand the differences.

Let's start by discussing the difference in the big box stores like WalMart "cheap" chlorine tablets and our PoolSeason branded thicker, pure, Cl tablets.

Ours versus theirs:

Thickness - There's a distinct difference in the thickness of our tabs. Thicker tab means more chlorine to do the job. Be aware that some of the big box stores will tell you there are 100 tablets in a box or bucket but they're actually only 1 inch tablets! Ours are 3 inch tablets!

Breaking - With our higher quality thicker tablets they're much less likely to break in transit. Plus ours come straight to us from the manufacturer where we unload them ourselves. Going to big box stores like WalMart or using Amazon means they don't care about the product as much. They also have to unload and load it multiple times before it reaches your pool. That increases the likelihood of your chlorine tablets breaking.

Quality - 99% pure. NO FILLERS! That means we don't have any junk. Other suppliers will sell tablets that are made to look as thick as ours because they are full of JUNK! You don't need junk, you need chlorine to keep your pool safe. Not only is that bad business, but it makes you have to go back and buy more because you have to now clean up the crap they put into the tablets. Stay pure, get great results.
