Just wait it out, the Ch level will come down. When you add Ch (Shock) you are spiking the Ch level and normal conditions use Ch and lower the concentration. Unless you put so… much in that it is having detrimental effects, you shouldn't worry. Be sure the Ph is in balance. If the Ph or Alkalinity is out of tolerence, you may have long term problems, like corrosion of tubing in the heater. Good luck There should not be a major problem unless the chlor level is above 10.0 ppm.
Lowering Chlorine LevelsThere is a product called "After Shock-Chlorine Reducer" by Jack's Magic. This will quickly lower the chlorine level in your pool. Please refer to manu…facture for instructions on how to use with your swimming pool. Hope this helps!! While using Jack's Magic will work, it's mainly a marketing ploy to make you think you need a lot of special pool chemicals. Here's a cheaper method: Stop adding chlorine, and let the sun burn out the excess.
That depends on how much and what you are using rule of thumb I shock once a week using enough for 20,000 gallons and wait at least 12 hours so I try to put it in on Sunday ni…ght before bed so I know it will be ok by monday noon I also have an automatic chlorinator on the pool set to deliver a set amount at all time when filter is running which is allways during swimming season hope this helps.
Answer After you "shock" a pool with chlorine (a large amount to potentially kill anything that has been growing in there - bacteria from human waste, algae...),… you should at least wait 24 hours if it is a small pool. If you can still smell a very strong odor from the chlorine, stay out longer. Larger pools with large filtration systems (such as public pools) usually 2-3 hours is good.
Answer That depends on the levels, however with high levels of chlorine when the sun is shining, it can burn the skin. There would have to be extreme elevated l…evels for that to occur, but it is possible. The real problem would be getting it in your eyes. It's best to stay out of it, until levels have returned to normal range.
Dry skin. Bleached hair.
Probably not unless you have added massive quantities. It is a low grade chlorine consisting mostly of inert ingredients instead of chlorine. Read and compare the percen…tages on the brands that you have available. The higher the percentage the better the product. BTW you can not bleach the water - you may over chlorinate at times thus you can bleach a vinyl pool liner.
That would depend on local laws regarding the handling of corrosive materials. Probably 18 after being acquainted with the safety information.
Doesn't really sound like a question. But your swimming pool suction is determined by the size of your pump. There are other factors like the pipe distance and diameter,… but it basically comes down to the size of your pump.
It is very unlikely for someone to experience chlorine poisoning by swimming, even in highly chlorinated pool water. Nonetheless, be sure to shower after swimming, because reg…ular, chlorinated pool water can easily irritate skin and hair.
You would still need to put chlorine in it because different people pee in it because it is a public pool. So you need to put chlorine in it to keep it clean.
The NSPF states that between 1-3 ppm of chlorine is safe to swim in. Through my own strudies, I actually reccomend 4ppm as a standard. Especially in public pools or soft-sided… above ground pools that lack proper circulation given the inferior, small cartrige filters. There are many ways around this. You can use a mineral purifier that uses both copper and silver. The silver acts as a suppliment to where you can use as little as .5 PPM of chlorine and do just fine. The copper acts as an algae preventative. Though there are more simple ways to go. Natural Chemistry makes a product called "Pool Perfect Plus Phos free" If you use this product on a weekly basis you can get away with using far less chlorine. Algae requires three main ingredients to grow. 1. Sunlight, (good luck keeping your pool in the dark all the time). 2. Water (this should be pretty self evident) 3. Phosfates (this is actually a controllable facet) If you remove all the Phosfates from a pool, algae can not grow. You then need to look at the effectiveness of the chlorine itself. pH is a huge factor in chlorine effectiveness. pH is a scale created by S.R.L Sorenson in 1909 to determine the corrosive ability of free standing liquid per liter. It is based on a negative intiger quanitity of equivalent grams of Hydrogen. If a liter of solution has .0000001 equivalent grams of hydrogen it then has a pH of 7.0 which is neutral. Chlorine works more efficiently the lower the pH. Preferably between 7.2 and 7.8. Any higher the chlorine loses it's capability as a sanitizer on an exponential level. Any lower the chlorine is litterally burned off by the acidity. The pH of the human skin and eyes is most comfortable at 7.5 for those seeking pool perfection. I have been in this field for two decades. I will stop now or I won't stop.
It varies depending on the overall condition of the pool water. In general, you need a minimum of 1 ppm to prevent algae growth. During the summer, when the pool is frequently… used, you may need 5 ppm. It is not recommended to ever swim in water with more than 10 ppm chlorine.
That would depend on the strength of the chlorine, the size of the pool, and the "Chlorine Demand" of the pool.
your skin can become VERY itchy if you have blonde hair your hair my get a greenish tint to it which is not attractive...i just joined this site how do i ask a question i go t…o ask type in what i want to know but then what do i do
Swimming pools without too much chlorine can begin to look contaminated as discolored due to the various particles and gases that could be hitting it. It is much more apparent… outdoors than it is indoors.
