It would probably be the smart thing to do because if you combine salt and chlorine, your pH level will be extremely low (very acidic)
I have to correct the above answer:::: That answ. may be partially right in that changing the water would not hurt especially if it has been more than 5 years since the water has been changed. The latter part of the answ. is what I question. "Salt water pools" have salt added in order to make chlorine. Adding chlor. by hand at a rate of a gallon at a time has a very minute effect on the pH of the pool. If anything it may raise it but seldom lower it. Adding chlor. via the salt system should also have minimal effects since it is added continually and at steady levels. The make up of the water - either acidic or alkaline can effect the chemistry. Plaster pools have a high demand for acid since there is lime in the plaster mix. HTH will have an effect on raising your pH since it is a calcium based product. Tab chlorine on the other hand can lower your pH levels because the pH of a tab is near 2.5 or3.0 --quite on the acid side.
Drain some of your pool and refill it with fresh water.
Honestly, the best thing to do is drain the pool and start from scratch with the chlorine. Been there, done that.
No. Swimming Pools contain water with chlorine
Chlorine atoms do not combine with the water molecules, which, therefore, means that Chlorine doesn't react with water. That is why Chlorine is used in swimming pools.
chlorine bleach, tap water, salt, swimming pool water.
To change a chlorine pool into a saltwater pill, it is important to drain it. From there, you want to wash the pool to get the chlorine residue off. Then, you want to buy new equipment. Add water, then add the salt, but not until the pH is balanced.
It is necessary because the chlorine kills all of the germs that enter the swimming pool.
Chlorine is not so much good for swimming but it is good for keeping the water free from harmful microorganisms, economically.
to much chlorine
No. In fact chlorine is added to swimming pools to kill bacteria.
well swimming in saltwater is okay because saltwater is like natural water for our bodies. and with swimming pools, it has chlorine. all chlorine does is try to make the water as pure as possible. but chlorine has a weird smell and it can damage some parts but not that much.
No. They are a salt water animal and chlorine is used in fresh water like swimming pools.
Chlorine is added to swimming pool water to disinfect it.
If it is a swimming pool, the chlorine in the water dries ot our skin.
Water in a swimming pool is compound because the water and chlorine have been chemically combined.
150 grams of chlorine for 10,000 gallons of water
The reason for this is that it has chlorine in it.
no it does not
Chlorine is a disinfectant that kills microorganisms in pool water st oping swimmers from getting sick
Swimming pools have chlorine to rid of germs in the water such a ;wee and Bogey...eghhh
Chlorine is generally added to swimming pools and other water attractions in order to keep the water clean. Doses of chlorine typically come in small tablets.
Chlorine :)Like in swimming pools :)
Lots of filtration and chlorine
