Can Aquatabs be used to prepare/chlorinate water for swimming? They are used to clean water for drinking so is it safe to assume that if used in proper quantity they can also clean water for swimming?
We are currently at a place where there is no pool and the temperatures are soaring, our 3 year old son has a small pool which we take along on picnics. I was not able to find pool chlorine somewhere over here but we do have adequate quantity of aquatabs with us.
I tested this and the water smelled/tasted just like it does in a properly chlorinated pool but want to be sure if they are adequate.
Just in case, the label says
Each tablet contains 500mg Sodium Dichloroisocyanurate (300mg Free available chlorine)
I am not really worried about maintaining a pH level over the matter of days, its more of a one time thing then we can change water.
