How do you get rid of chlorine when you put too much in your swimming pool?
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.
There should not be a major problem unless the chlor level is above 10.0 ppm.

Lowering Chlorine Levels There 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 ma…nufacture for instructions on how to use with your swimming pool. Hope this helps!! ANSWER 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.
Answer . \nevaporation and/or dilution\n. \nevaporation: chlorine will evaporate from a pool fastest on a hot, sunny day. leave the cover off for a bit.\n. \ndilution: a…dd clean non-chlorinated water to the pool to dilute the chlorine concentration. do not illegally dispose of or dump chlorinated water to make room for the clean water!
Too strong means 5.0 or higher? You can go to 10.0 without many side affects. What readings are you getting? Wait a day or so for 5 and above readings. Maybe a minute amount o…f ammonia would do the trick but be careful.
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 levels fo…r 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.
Just wait it out the chlorine will dissipate after a couple of days. if you have a salt water pool turn the chlorine generator down or run the filter less often if possible.
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 percentages …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.
Swimming pool chlorine, while annoying, is not dangerous and all you need to do is wait and your eyes will recover. However, you may not want to swim again without wearing a d…ivers mask (or swimming goggles) to protect your eyes. However, if your eyes are really bad after swimming, the pool people may have made a mistake with the chlorine pool dose. If you think this has happened you need to tell the pool guard and make sure you call an ambulance to take you to the emergency department at hospital.
That would depend on local laws regarding the handling of corrosive materials. Probably 18 after being acquainted with the safety information.
You can use a foam disperser for temporary relief, but the only long term solution is to allow the level to normally drop, replace water, or try to use large quantities of oxi…dizer to burn it out.. Pool & Spa
The NSPF states that between 1-3 ppm of chlorine is safe to swimin. Through my own studies, I actually recommend 4ppm as astandard. Especially in public pools or soft-sided ab…ove groundpools that lack proper circulation given the inferior, smallcartridge filters. There are many ways around this. You can use amineral purifier that uses both copper and silver. The silver actsas a supplement to where you can use as little as .5 PPM ofchlorine and do just fine. The copper acts as an algaepreventative. Though there are more simple ways to go. Natural Chemistry makes aproduct called "Pool Perfect Plus Phos free" If you use thisproduct on a weekly basis you can get away with using far lesschlorine. Algae requires three main ingredients to grow. 1. Sunlight, (good luck keeping your pool in the dark all thetime). 2. Water (this should be pretty self evident) 3. Phosphates (this is actually a controllable facet) If you remove all the Phosphates from a pool, algae cannot 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 thecorrosive ability of free standing liquid per liter. It is based on a negative integer quantity of equivalent grams ofHydrogen. If a liter of solution has .0000001 equivalent grams of hydrogen itthen has a pH of 7.0 which is neutral. Chlorine works more efficiently the lower the pH. Preferablybetween 7.2 and 7.8. Any higher the chlorine loses its capability as a sanitizer on anexponential level. Any lower the chlorine is literally burned offby the acidity. The pH of the human skin and eyes is most comfortable at 7.5 forthose seeking pool perfection.
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.
If it's a properly maintained pool, it will have between 2-4ppm.
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
