Maintain a Clean Pool

Your pool chemistry can change quickly. Test your pool water weekly to ensure your Free Chlorine level remains between 1 – 4 ppm.

Fill your feeder or floater with tablets and adjust output to bring chlorine to 1 – 4 ppm, test and refill as needed to maintain adequate sanitization. For skimmer application, add 2 tablets per 10,000 gallons to bring chlorine to 1 – 4 ppm, then add more tablets as needed to maintain adequate sanitization.

Maintain a regular cleaning regimen. Skim water surface, brush walls, vacuum and empty skimmer baskets at least once per week. Download the Clorox® Pool app on the Apple App Store or Google Play for expert water analysis and product and dosage recommendations.

This season, spend less time maintaining and more time enjoying your swimming pool!

The best chlorine tablet available

I use Clorox xblue tabs religiously. They keep my water crystal clear, prevent algae, and are treated to keep the sun from breaking down the chlorine. I drop a tablet in my skimmer and I am good for a couple of days.

Beware

Be VERY careful. These are ultra strong. Every time I try to open the container while holding my breath, I still manage to get am enormous amount of chlorine vapor that sears my nose and throat. I don’t have this with HTH. And then when I close up the container, I can still smell it in the air. Be EXTREMELY cautious!!!! Or better yet, do not buy

Good Chlorine Tabs

I’ve been using chlorine tabs for a long time and these are as good as they come. They last a reasonable amount of time and keep the chlorine level in my pool where I want it. It’s easy to put these tabs into my floater and let them do their job over the week. Then I put more in the next week and all done. My pool stays sparkly clean.

Clorox XtraBlue Chlorinating Tablets are GREAT.

Clorox XtraBlue Chlorinating Tablets are what I have been using for years and do the job of disinfecting to pool and killing algae just the way it is supposed to work. I have used less expensive tablets a few times in the past without the same pleasant results. I just put one tablet into my dispenser about every 6 or 7 days depending on how the dispenser is set and my pool is sparkling clear. Over a period of time I have learned keeping the pool chemically balanced is very important to maintain an inviting pool. Living in Florida we can use our pool a full 7 months of the year without the need of heating it and my solar heater can extend that to an easy 10 months. With the Clorox Pool Program it is easy to maintain the pool the year round.

Great tabs that keep my pool sparkling

These Chlorinating tablets are good quality, easy to use and fit perfectly in my in-line chlorinator. I can fill it and forget about it for a while, knowing that the XtraBlue tablets are working to keep the pool clear, sanitized and algae free. The smaller package size is also more convenient than those large and heavy pails that take up a lot of room.

Easy to use clorinating tabs

I like how easy it is to use those chlorinating tabs. I put in two tabs a couple times a week, and it seems to help even keep my water more crystal clear. After struggling for the last year trying to use other pool maintenance brands to balance my pool, I was always confused on how much to use when. Now with the Clorox app I can see exactly what I need, and am guided for how much to use. These tabs seem to work better than what I used last year.

This is a good product but it didn’t last very long in my pool and it took the whole container in less than 2 weeks. The heat was too much for it to maintain the chlorine in my pool. Normally I can put two tablets in every 2-3 days. I had to use 3 tablets to get the desired effect.

Tablets add to the hardness of the pool and once it up the only way to lower it is drain half the pool. I also add Liquid Chlorination in place of the tablets during colder months. I have found that 2 in the summertime 80-100+ degree days keeps the chlorine level in the ideal range, usually 2 every 4-5 days.

Another noteworthy aspect of this product is its longevity. The chlorine levels remain stable for an extended period, providing consistent sanitization and minimizing the need for frequent reapplication. I found this to be a significant advantage, as it saved both time and money in the long run. Furthermore, the packaging is convenient and user-friendly. The sturdy container has a secure lid that ensures the granules stay fresh and dry, even in humid conditions. It’s also easy to measure the right amount of product thanks to the clear instructions and provided scoop. Clorox truly understands the needs of pool owners and has designed a product that simplifies pool maintenance. Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, the Clorox brand instills trust and confidence. With their long-standing reputation for quality and reliability, I felt reassured that I was using a product that not only delivers exceptional results but also prioritizes safety.

Raises CYA

As other reviews mentioned, this product raises CYA and QUICK. I was using this along with the CLOROX 6 in 1 shock. Both products utilize trichlor, which raises CYA levels. I have a brand new pool, with a cartridge filter and do a lot of maintenance to keep the pool clean. The issue is within a year of using these products (even less for the CLOROX shock, as I was using a different brand before) my CYA is now out of range (about 110 ppm). I will be switching to liquid chlorine and draining/replacing my water slowly as it is summer now. This is not ideal as I am in California and we are in a drought. The products seem to sanitize fine, but not for long once your CYA levels build up and you have to drain your pool.

Works well to a point

Simple system using Clorox pool system. Worked well for two years and then the free chlorine dropped soon after adding chlorine, even though total chlorine was through the roof. Problem was chlorine lock caused by accumulating cyanuric acid levels that were over 200. In Southern California, there are restrictions on excess water use, and the solution is the empty the pool which can’t be done. Chloride should also make tablets and shock without cyanuric acid.

We bought the tablets in Costco. Used to have our setting on 3, and the chorine levels were a little too high, so we would always keep the setting at 2.

The bucket was clearly marked on the label as NET CONTENTS 5 pounds. This is very deceptive to fill with less than 5 pounds net. I complained to the Lowes store customer service who verified the problem. The other buckets on the Lowes shelf were approximately 3 pounds as well.

Never put Chlorine in a skimmer

As a former pool heater repair tech, I would like to point out the issue with Clorox showing a pool skimmer, and mentioning “skimmer sanitizing” by placing chlorine tabs directly into the skimmer. If you really want to destroy your brand new pool heater in literally two weeks, thereby voiding your warranty, this is how you do it! Chlorine EATS copper heat exchanges. You will see pin holes all over your heat exchanger, that quickly turns purple from the corrosive effects of Chlorine being dumped from your skimmer, straight to your heater. It will also destroy the seals on your pool pumps. Bottom line: NEVER add chlorine to your skimmer! Chlorine must be at the end of the plumbing chain, going last into your pool. That way, it gets diluted before reaching your skimmer. An inline chlorinator adds the chlorine into your pool, as your pump pushes it outward. You never want a pool pump yo suck chlorine. Always push it into the pool. Clorox is a great product, but they are not pool techs. I also can’t begin to tell you how many times I have listened to a customer tell me that their local pool chemical store told them to put chlorine into their skimmer. These guys will destroy your pool heater, and blame you when your warranty is voided by the manufacturer.

Horrible Packaging

I bought a 5 # pail of the Clorox Xtra Blue 3″ tablets on an end-of-season sale at Walmart. I will never buy them again. I don’t know how well the tablets work, because I just bought them. However, I had to take a screwdriver to get the lid off. The push-the-corner and simultaneously lift the lid is almost impossible for someone over 65 with arthritis to do. Looks like I will be going back to the pool store to purchase its individually wrapped 3″ tablets. I took the Clorox tablets out of the bucket and put them in an old pool store pail.

The 6 in 1 tablets are the best.

I have used several different tablets and the only one to keep my pool clean, clear and maintenance free are the 6 in 1. You can no longer find them anywhere why? Other than that the best tablets so far.

Clean and chemistry balanced

Been using the tablets for my inground pool from time the product was introduced on to the market and I have found that they last longer than most of the other products I have used and the chemical balance of the pool is always stable. I have also use some of the other products like the PH increasers and the test kit and they also work very well. I have taken my poolwater to my local pool dealer to be tested and then used the Clorox test kit to test my pool water and the results were almost the same.

Be Very Careful

Be careful when using this product. These tablets contain Cyanuric Acid, a chlorine stabilizer which is great to a certain point. Once you go over that point, it will over-stabilize your chlorine and render it ineffective. So you will add more and more to kill the algae but it won’t work. Once your pool is over-stabilized, the only way to fix it is drain a bunch of water out and refill the pool, which can be expensive. IF you test with strips, you can get a false Cyanuric Acid reading and think you need more chlorine. The only way to test it correctly is to take your water sample to a pool store and let them test it. Clorox probably adds the Cyanuric Acid to get the tabs to last longer. You just have to be very careful that you don’t get too much. I normally use the Clorox products and have had good luck.

Great supplement in hot weather!

I have a 15′ oval above ground pool with the SimpleSalt system. Last summer, I found that the system simply couldn’t keep up with the high temperatures and bright sunlight here in Coastal SC. After about a month of struggling with clarifiers and other products (which is why I chose the salt system to begin with – I wanted to do away with all those products!), someone suggested adding one of these tablets to my skimmer once every two weeks. Since then, I have had absolutely no problems with the cloudy water I experienced last year. A great product, and much cheaper than the other additives I was having to buy!

XtraBlue is a Great Product!

Just giving credit where its deserved: your Florida Blue now XtraBlue tabs are EXCELLENT! I’ve used them in my pool for 2+ years now and it needs very little else…maybe an occasional shock in the rainy season. I used to need acid, stabilizer, clarifier, etc, but XtraBlue does it all (my pool water is always balanced and clear, and your tabs last a long time). Thank you for this product from a Very Happy Customer!

Great tablets, don’t fall apart

Love these tablets. 1 of the 3″ tablets will last an entire week in my 11k gal fiberglass pool and they don’t fall apart and become a mushy mess in my auto chlorinator. I tried the HTH tabs and they fell apart and became a mushy mess. Plus these have the activator in them to help maintain chlorine balance – the HTH did not. Each tablet came in its own sealed package that was easy to open without needing scissors.

Excellent product!

This year (2018) was the first year we used this product from beginning to end of summer. We had a BRUTAL summer in the Mid-Atlantic region with excessive (and overwhelming) heat as well as periods of intense rain. Our pool was clear ALL SUMMER LONG! I attribute our water’s appearance to this product. No need to change or check other brands when we have no issues with what we use. Awesome!

Seriously think twice

DO NOT buy/use this product. The “OTHER INGREDIENTS………5.95%” will increase the Cyanuric Acid (CYA) without any control measures in place. There are only two ways to reduce CYA from your pool: 1) drain __% of your pool and refill with fresh water; 2) if someone in your city offers it, there are reverse osmosis trucks that can pull water from your pool, remove the CYA from that water and put it back in your pool. Neither of these options are cheap or fast. If you are unfamiliar with what high levels of CYA will do to your pool water, either google it or continue reading. Either way, RUN from this product because you will eventually regret the results that these “OTHER INGREDIENTS” have on your backyard oasis. CYA acts as a buffer for chlorine from the sun which, in balanced amounts is good. However, once it reaches numbers in the 90+, the chlorine is no longer effective at keeping your water clean so you can have chlorine over 5ppm and the water is still cloudy and green. Before I figured out the problem with my water chemistry, I had bumped the chlorine to 11.5ppm and it was still green because the CYA was around 100. One final note, it isn’t like CYA is some rare unobtainable chemical. It is easily acquired at your local pool store where you can add it in very controlled amounts so it is a real shame that Clorox is hiding it within most of their chlorine products without telling their consumers.

Not so great

We have an above ground pool and have always bought the hth 6 in 1 tablets. But this year I saw the Clorox 6 in 1 and thought, great brand name, this will work even better. No, that is not the case. Even keeping my water balanced, I am fighting allege and decreasing chlorine numbers. It is supposed to have an algaecide and a stabilizer in the tablets. When using the hth 6 and 1 3″ tablets I never had an algae problem and the stabilizer in it works the way it should keeping my chlorine levels up. I was very disappointed in this product and will go back to the hth tablets next year.
