Household pool and spa chemicals

  • Work outdoors or provide adequate ventilation by opening windows and doors and/or turning on a room fan.
  • Make sure there are no potential ignition sources like pilot lights or sparks of any kind.  
  • Wear protective clothing, such as chemical-resistant gloves, eye protection and long sleeves
  • Be careful not to breathe any fumes. 
  1. Delute the chemical per instructions.
  • Always add the acid to the water and not the water to the acid.
  • Failure to dilute the concentrate may seriously damage pipes or other parts of your plumbing.
  1. Pour the diluted solution slowly down the drain, flushing with large amounts of water and taking care not to splash.  
  2. Continue disposing in small batches of diluted solution until completely gone.
  • Don't mix products, and wait several hours between disposing of different types of products.  
  • The best time to do this is during the working day when the sewage system is in full use so this material passes through the municipal sewage system faster.
