INSTRUCTIONS

The correct level

of free chlorine should be maintained for several hours prior to and during swimming activity.

Chlorine levels and pH should be tested daily by use of a reliable lesl kit using fresh testing reagents.

pH falls below the required level add

alkali,

rises above

acid or hydrochloric acid.

Dose pool

the evening when the pool is not in use.

Stabiliser levels MUST be tesled fortnightly by your local pool shop or by use of a reliable tesl

Once stabiliser levels reach

50mgIL

use this product until stabiliser levels fall below that level. Instead use an unstabilised chlorine product to maintain free

chlorine levels.

50mgIL

stabiliser is exceeded the ability of the chlorine to control algae and bacterial is reduced. UNDER NO

CIRCUMSTANCES should slabiliser concentrations be allowed to exceed

IOOmglL.

stabiliser concentration needs to be reduced

consult your local pool shop.

Always add tablets to a floating dispensing device or feeder designed for either calcium hypochlorite tablets or trichloroisocyanurate

tablets.

DO NOT USE IN FEEDERS DESIGNED FOR

5. FIRE FIGHTING METHODS

SUITABLE EXTINGUISHING MEDIA

:

Water spray, foam, carbon dioxide or dry chemical powder.

HAZARDS FROM COMBUSTION

:

The product is non-flammable but is considered as an oxidising substance and

spontaneous combustion may occur if in contact with oxidisable, combustible or

flammable materials and severe burns may occur. Keep away from ignition

sources, heat, sparks or naked flames and moisture. Keep away from combustible

materials. Heating can cause expansion or decomposition leading to violent

rupture of containers.

PRECAUTIONS FOR FIRE FIGHTERS AND

SPECIAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT

:

Fire fighters should wear self-contained breathing apparatus to minimise risk of

exposure to vapour or products of combustion.

HAZCHEM CODE

:

NONE

6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

EMERGENCY

PROCEDURES

:

Shut off all sources of ignition. Ensure adequate ventilation. Keep spectators away – rope off the area.

Avoid accidents, clean up immediately. Wear protective equipment to prevent skin and eye

contamination.

METHODS AND

MATERIALS FOR

CONTAINMENT AND

CLEAN UP

:

Contain the spill and prevent run off into confined areas, drains and waterways.

Carefully scoop or shovel up uncontaminated product for re-use. Sweep up contaminated material,

being careful to keep it away from oxidisable organic materials such as paper, sawdust, rags, clothing,

etc. DO NOT add small amounts of water to trichloroisocyanuric acid. Place into sealed drums and

dispose of in an area approved by local authority by-laws. DO NOT use a metal container.

DO NOT INCINERATE. The by-products can be hazardous.

7. HANDLING AND STORAGE

PRECAUTIONS FOR

SAFE HANDLING

:

Keep containers closed at all times - check regularly for leaks or spills. Transport and store upright.

Avoid eye contact and repeated or prolonged skin contact. Do not eat, drink or smoke in contaminated

areas. Always remove contaminated clothing and wash hands before eating, drinking, smoking or using

the toilet. Wash contaminated clothing and other protective equipment before storage or re-use.

CONDITIONS FOR

SAFE STORAGE

:

Store in the original container, in a cool dry well-ventilated area out of sunlight and away from

incompatible materials and foodstuffs. Ensure containers are fitted with vented closures.

Keep containers closed when not in use to ensure contamination does not occur. Ensure containers are

fitted with vented closures and check regularly for leaks. DO NOT combine part drums of the same

product, as this may be a source of contamination. DO NOT mix with other chemicals. DO NOT allow

contact with wood shavings, paper, fabrics, petrol, kerosene or other combustible materials as the

product can ignite them, particularly if damp. Keep dry – reacts with water, may lead to drum rupture.

Ensure pallets are free of oil.

This material is a Scheduled Poison S6 and must be stored, maintained and used in accordance with

the relevant regulations.

8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS / PERSONAL PROTECTION

NATIONAL EXPOSURE

STANDARDS

:

No value assigned for this specific material by NOHSC, however as published by NOHSC

T.W.A. for Chlorine = 1 ppm - 3mg/m

S.T.E.L. for Chlorine = Peak Limitation

T.W.A. for Nuisance Particulate = 10mg/m

(measured as inspirable dust)

BIOLOGICAL LIMIT VALUES

:

No biological limit allocated.

ENGINEERING CONTROLS

:

Ensure ventilation is adequate to maintain air concentrations below Exposure Standards.

Use with local exhaust ventilation or while wearing a respirator. Keep containers closed when

not in use.

PERSONAL PROTECTIVE

EQUIPMENT

:

Protective equipment must be worn at all times. Risk assessments should always be conducted

to identify the hazards and in turn determine the appropriate personal protective equipment for

the hazard.

Protective gloves: elbow-length natural rubber or nitrile glove impervious gloves. Always check

with the glove manufacturer or your personal protective equipment supplier regarding the

correct type of glove to use. Consult AS/NZS 2161 for further information.

Eye protection: safety glasses/goggles with side shield protection. Consult AS/NZS 1336 and

AS/NZS 1337 for further information.

Clothing and footwear: waterproof apron, coveralls, trousers, long sleeved shirt, closed in

shoes and/or safety footwear. Consult AS/NZS 2210 and AS/NZS 2919 for further information.

Respiratory Protection: Avoid breathing dust. Where ventilation is not adequate, respiratory

protection may be required. Any P1 or P2 particulate filter respirator meeting the requirements

of AS/NZS 1715 and AS/NZS 1716.
