Some of the Industrial abbreviations names includes are TCE, trichlor
, Trike, Tricky and tri.
([dagger]) Chlorine stabilizers include compounds such as cyanuric acid, dichlor, and trichlor
Brisk bleeding from the site of attachment was checked by chemical cauterization with Trichlor
To identify potential pool chemical incidents, we queried the HSEES database for the following terms: "swim," "pool," "Jacuzzi," "spa," and "hot tub." We also queried pool chemicals mentioned in De Haan and Johanningsmeier's (1997) pool operator training manual: "algaecide," "bromide," "chlorinated isocyanurate," "cyanuric acid," "lithium hypochlorite," "hypobromous acid," "dichlor," "trichlor
," "muriatic acid," "chlorine," "calcium hypochlorite," "hypochlorous solution," "hydrogen peroxide," "hydrochloric acid," "sodium hypochlorite," "potassium monopersulfate," "biguanide," "soda ash," "sodium bisulfate," and "copper sulfate."
(I once worked on a pool that had the prettiest green algae growing in it even though the chlorine was over 15ppm--which is five times the normal, acceptable level of chlorine.) During the course of the swim season, it is typical that using trichlor
or dichlor will cause the stabilizer level to slowly increase.
I don't know if Uberti has stooped to painting on their case colors but at least one Italian maker does and most any decent solvent (lacquer thinner, MEK, Trichlor
, etc) will instantly remove it down to white metal.
"In our plant [where trichlor
is made], the guys wear [protective] suits because it is still in a respiratory form and you could inhale it," explained Charlie Schobel, vice president of government affairs at BioLab, a pool chemical manufacturer in Lawrenceville, Ga.
Most commercial pools are sanitized by bleach, calcium hypochlorite and trichlor
. Though effective, each of these chlorines has its own assets and liabilities.
"We've found the water-based finish to be more durable than lacquer, especially trichlor
Solution: Pumice stones, trichlor
tablets, copper algaecide
In addition, Stephenson said that high preliminary anti-dumping tariffs levied in December 2004 on trichlor
and dichlor imported from China eventually will raise prices on those products.
