What should the Chlorine parts per millon be for a swimming pool?

The recommended chlorine level for disinfecting private pools can be as high as 2.0 PPM. 2 ppm is now the minimum. Recommended levels are now 1.5 ppm to 5.0 ppm.

What should the chlorine level be in a pool?

Residential pools: 1.0 - 3.0 ppm; Commercial pools: 3.0 ppm - 5.0 ppm; Bromine levels: 4.0 - 6.0 ppm

How do you decrease the chlorine ppm in your pool?

Use muriatic acid.

Can you buy chlorine tablets for swimming pools without stabilizer?

I have never heard of one without stabilizer. Although the recommended range of stabilizer in a pool is 30-50 ppm, you can have 100 ppm without any adverse affects on health or water chemistry balance.

What is the recommended hardness range for salt pools?

Same as Chlorinated pools: 80-120 ppm. A salt pool is the same as a non- salt pool. Only difference is the chlorine is made in the system thru automation/mechanically. With the addition of swimming pool salt to the water it in turn goes thru the device and returns to the pool as chlorine. Otherwise you add the chlorine manually. k

What tests are done on swimming pool water?

There are three basic tests for outdoor swimming pools:chlorine (ppm - parts per million)pH (in pH units, from 0 - 14, 7.0 - 8.0 is normal for a pool)stabilizer (ppm, from 20 - 100)This applies to all chlorinated pools, INCLUDING 'salt water' pools, which are also chlorinated by the salt water chlorine generator.It can be helpful to test for total alkalinity (60 - 180 ppm, depending) though this is rarely necessary on small vinyl pools.On concrete pools of all types, and pools with heaters, it's important to test for calcium (ppm, 80 - 300 ppm, depending) since LOW calcium can damage concrete pools, and high calcium can cause cloudiness in pools and scale in heaters or pools.On pools filled with water from wells, or from old iron distribution systems, it's helpful to test for metals, such as iron or manganese. Likewise, pools using copper ionizers need to test for copper.

What is a safe chlorine for swimming?

Someone/something changed the original question and that is probably why it has not been answered.Safe levels for chlorine are 1.5 ppm to about 5.0 ppm. of free chlorine. You should have a test kit that will give you free chlorine readings as opposed to just a chlorine residual. Free chlorine is what sanitizes the pool water. If you can smell a chlorine odor coming from your pool then you do not have enough chlorine in the water.K

How much chlorine is used in a swimming pool?

Chlorine level should stay between 1.0 and 3.0 parts per million (ppm) to maintain a healthy pool.

How much acid and chlorine should be added to a 5000 liter swimming pool?

How much acid and chlorine should be added to a 5000 liter to make 5 ppm solution

Is saltwater pools sore on your eyes?

True salt water pools have the same parts per million (ppm) as sea water which is roughly 35,000 ppm. We have a salt taste threshold of around 3,500 ppm and our eyes have about 7,000ppm. Most chlorine generators require a salt content of 3,000-5,000 ppm in the pool. You will feel the salt in a true salt water pool, most people don't notice the salt in a pool with a chlorine generator.

Can regular swimming cause hair fall due to chlorine..what are the safe levels for chlorine in pools?

You can check the pool chlorine levels with some litmus paper the levels need to be between 7.2 and 7.6 on the ph scale it would need a lot of chlorine for hair to fall out Safe levels are below 5ppm chlorine. You won't die if you swim in 10 ppm once or twice, but there could be harmful effects if you swim very regularly in high doses.
