Fi-Clor are to make a change to the labeling of their Superfast products to do away with the confusion between the 2.5kg and 4kg tubs.
Both tubs contain the chemical Calcium Hypochlorite but fi-clor have formulated it not only to be 78% strength (normal shock chlorine is 55%) but to rapid dissolve by just scattering on the water. These two improvements have made the product very popular and it is PoolStore’s best selling shock chorine.
However there has been a lot of confusion amongst customers because the label on the 2.5kg tubs says “Superfast Shock” but the 4kg tubs says “Superfast Granules”
Arthur Cox, Technical Sales Manager at Fi-Clor says “Fi-clor intend renaming all pack sizes of this product as Fi-Clor Superfast Shock Granules. The names Granules and Shock came about when the product was initially launched in 2000. This type of product had traditionally been used for shock dosing only, due to its relative insolubility, but following the development of Superfast, we wanted to promote it for regular day to day disinfection. We therefore felt that naming it as a Shock product would limit the sales potential in this particular application area. Also, the smaller pack was better suited to giving instructions for shocking a pool without having to actually weigh out product i.e. roughly half the pack (1.25kg) for the average domestic pool. 10 years on from the launch, things have moved on, the market has matured and many pool owners have bought the larger pack for both regular disinfection and shock dosing”
