Where can you buy pool shock in malaysia

If you have a salt water system, you may safely use and 'pool shock' as long as it is either sodium based or is potassium peroxymonopersulfate based. Typical liquid pool shock, or even granular shock for a salt system, is compariable to household bleach. Main difference is bleach may contain a trace of phosphates, but nothing that will harm the system. I see no problem using bleach. Just dont enter the water until the chlorine reading has dropped to or below 4ppm. Hope this helps! Pool management and chem analysis experience of 6 years.

Is there a shock it just for the salt water or you use reg. shock it you buy at walmart

Stabelizing shock is what is usually recommeded for saltwater pools because it is less likely to bleach the vinyl liner and reduce its lifespan. Calsium Chloride is a shock that is not stabelizing. If you are careful you can use it but you should not let any of it land on the pool bottom. With good pump flow you can pour some into the skimmer basket so it is disolved before returning to the pool. I hope this helps.

I have an 18 by 48 Intex easy set pool and have had a high salt reading I emptyed about a 1/3 and ran clean in but still to high now its turning green what do you suggest I shock it with?

For your pool size you should have started with 160 lbs of salt. 18x48= 6,400 gallons of water. The manual says the only way to lower salt is to partially drain and refill with water, I do not believe there is anything you can add to remove salt. I would think you can throw in some regular chlorine shock to get the green out while you are adjusting the salt level.

The water is getting cloudy and the sides of the pool are slimy

If your pool water is clowdy and slimy then it is about to turn green. What you need to do first is shock the pool to recommended dose to start killing the algae.
The most common error users make in managing a salt water pool besides not having salt in the pool has no stabilizer in it. This is a chemical that has an affinity for chlorine ions and if it is not there the chlorine can be disipated in a few hours when the sun hits it. Another name for it is Cyanuric Acid. It can be purchased in granular form at many pool supply stores or in a liquid form at Leslies. In order to get your pool blue you need to have the chemistry checked at a pool store or with a test kit (either liquid or strips). Don't buy everything a pool supply tells you to buy but start out with vinyl safe shock, stabilizer and salt. The pool store should be able to help you determine the dose. The following is what I would do:
1. Make sure salt is at the recommended concentration.
2. Shock the pool to recommended dose to start killing the algae.
3. Place the recomended dose of stabilizer in the pool.
4. Make sure pump and filter are working properly.
5. Check the pool chemistry on a daily basis until it is ready for swimming.
6. Check the chemistry on a weekly basis and clean the pool and equipment according to the pool instructions.

Smile, you are a pool manager.

I have a 13X42 inch Metal Frame Pool and we have added over 55 lbs of salt to our pool and its still green and saying low salt.... what should we do and how much salt does out pool actually need??

You need to get water tested then add the right amount of shock + others and check in a few days to see where the water is at. The salt system only keeps pool right when in balance.

I have a saltwater pool system that was recently set up and the water seems to have a slight green tint to it and the walls and floors are slimy. Can you ''shock it'' with salt in the water?

yes but yu need more than just salt take a sample of water to pool shop you have way to much phosphurus in the pool you will need a shock tratment that has to be poured through skimmer box that goes through filter and increases pressure mommenterally salt alone will not fix. alkalinity is buggered as well you will need a buffer powder as well to get on top of it get water tested so you dont just waste your time
