How to Get It

Product Overview

Pool Essentials Chlorinating Liquid is used for everyday swimming pool water sanitization. This easy to use liquid chlorine pool chemical effectively cleans pool water and kills bacteria. The fast acting formula kills swimming pool algae and bacteria while the calcium free formulation will not cloud swimming pool water. Pool Essentials Chlorinating Liquid is compatible with salt pool systems and is suitable for use in all types of pools, including saltwater pools. Balanced pool water is vital to swimmer's safety and comfort. Chlorinate your swimming pool on a weekly basis as part of your regular maintenance routine to maintain Free Chlorine levels at 1-4 parts per million (ppm) and keep bacteria at bay. Imbalanced swimming pool water can cause your sanitizers to loose their effectiveness, cause swimmer irritation from itchy skin and burning eyes and damage to pool surfaces, structures and equipment. Add 13 fl. oz. of Pool Essentials Chlorinating Liquid for each 10,000 Gal. of water.

Correct Way to Read Date Stamp
The correct way to read the date stamp on the box is done by using the Julian Date Chart, make sure you use the appropriate chart: leap or regular year. https://landweb.modaps.eosdis.nasa.gov/browse/calendar.html Some manufacturers will switch day and year placement, see examples from Trouble Free Pools listings. Hope this helps as it did for me.

    Always old product, completely diluted by age
    Only in a pinch should you buy this from HD or the other home improvement store. Make sure to read the printed date on the bottle and/or the carton. 1st 2 digits are the Yr, next is the month, followed by the day. If it is more than 90 days old, you may want to go to a pool store. Especially if the packaging is kept in the sun. To test the strength, pour a little drop or 2 on your finger, it should turn from yellow to white (wash finger afterwards, No it's not going to harm you, just don't rub your eyes or lick your finger.

      solid, if you can read a date code...
      I've used this product most of the summer, and it has always been pretty fresh at my HD (less than a month old). My only beef is the price, but with the dearth of chlorine, as Father Guido Sarducci says, supply and-a demand.

        DON'T BUY!!!
        Pool Essentials Chlorine Review 08/22/2021 We felt like the chlorine wasn't working, so I put it to the test. I took 4 cups of tap water and 1 tsp chlorine to see how many PPM this would achieve. It achieves a 0PPM reading. I attempted the same experiment using 1cup of water and 1 tsp of chlorine - I achieved the same results, 0PPM of free available chlorine. When I tested the bound chlorine it was off the charts. The results - this is worthless chlorine!! Either the chlorine is of extremely poor quality OR it is not being handled and stored appropriately. At either rate, I WOULD NOT recommend purchasing the Pool Essentials brand of chlorine from Home Depot. I can't say that all of their chlorine is junk as I have not purchased from other distributors, but I can say that I WILL NOT purchase this brand from Home Depot again. Thankfully, my local Home Depot is working with me to rectify the situation.

          Not stored prporly at Home Depot
          Home Depot stores this product outdoors in the garden area. During the summer months the high temperatures quickly degrades the potency. I have discussed with a local manager but they seem unwilling to make the change to protect this important pool chemical

            Worked Well
            I have always used powdered chlorine previosly, and the one time I did try liquid I had terrible results. That before I knew to check the manufacture date and it was probably pretty old. The liquid I recently got was less than 2 weeks old and worked great!! Made a believer out of me. No more messing with powder! And apparently it gradually adds salt to your pool (makes sense because of the chemical makeup) which is easier on the skin.

              Too weak and too expensive and too heavy
              Seems very weak for 10% chlorine. It’s not coping with the algae. The HDX was much better - bring it back. The 4 pack weighs almost 42 pounds and is pretty unwieldy.
                Always expired junk
                This is *always* expired junk. This is completely ineffective and does not change chlorine levels in the pool as all the chlorine is expired and evaporated off. You are basically paying $15 to dump 4 gallons of water in the pool. Total waste of money. HDX is a far better product when its in stock.
                  worked for me
                  I started using as weekly maint and found that it was way better than granules. I will use fir now on

                    Doesn't even smell like chlorine
                    BEWARE: This product is often out of date and all the chlorine has evaporated. You may as well pour 4 gallons of tap water into the pool and give me the $15.
