Lo-Chlor Super Shock and Swim is suitable for oxidising pool and spa water because it reacts quickly to eliminate bather waste, increases existing sanitiser efficiency and enhances water clarity and bather comfort. It eliminates the need to shock the pool or spa with heavy chlorine-based products, which can cause chemical-smelling odours and nasal irritation.

There's no end of information on the safe handling of dangerous goods in Australia, and a host of bodies and associations with the power to enforce regulatory requirements.
