Well you need to go to a pool store so they can tellvyou what to o
High Chlorine levels will damage a lot of things. Don't enter the pool if the Chlorine is higher than 5 PPM. To quickly lower the chlorine level in the pool, you may add some Hydrogen Peroxide from the drug store. Pool Masters
There are 3 components to the chlorine level in the pool. Total chlorine, Free chlorine, and Combined chlorine. Free chlorine is the chlorine available for sanitation.
The only way to lower your cya level in your swimming pool is to partially drain your pool and fill with fresh water that will lower it or if you want to lower it to almost nothing completely drain your pool and start over but keep in mind chlorine tablets will raise your CYA level More information in the related link below.
throw chlorine in it
Chlorine is used as a sanitizer, muriatic acid is used to lower pH
In order to answer your question, you need to know whether there is too much or too little chlorine in the water. 99% of the time when eyes are irritated there is TOO LITTLE chlorine which results in the presence of chloramines (or combined chlorines) which are the cause of chlorine odors, eye and skin irritation. Measure the chlorine level (free chlorine AND combined chlorine). If you find too little chlorine, or the presence of combined chlorine, shock the pool. I partly agree with the above. You can lower the chlorine using Thiosulphate which can be purchased at your pool store. Chloramines should be test. Get a good Taylor DPD, not OTO, test kit and test for chloramines. Anything over .6 and shock the pool.
Yes but you also need chlorine stabilizer (CYA) or the chlorine will be destroyed by sunlight in a very short time or you need to add the bleach in doses thoughout the day to maintain the chlorine level. Bleach is the same as liquid pool chlorine but at a lower concentration.
Add cyanuric acid or stabilizer to maintain the chlorine in the pool.
Time, and the brightness of the sun will bring your chlorine level down.
Wait a while and it will lower by the sun and bacteria. Check chlorine level with test kit before going in the pool
No. You can go to 10.0. Now if you have a vinyl liner that chlor level might have to be lower. k
That depends on which chlorine you use. Some have hi pH others have low pH. http://www.deh.enr.state.nc.us/ehs/chem.htm#chl
If the free chlorine in the pool is at a reasonable level then the chlorine is able to do its job which is to kill the micro organisms that can harm you.
If you are getting a low reading of chlorine in your above ground pool, you should add the appropriate amount of chlorine to get it back to the correct level. This is important to keep your pool running at maximum abilities.
my free chlorine level is way to high above ten my pool is 12 by 24 what can i do to fix it
You whip your dick out and pee in the pool.. that oughta do it! :)
yes, the algae feeds on the chlorine.. must get rid of algae, then bring up chlorine level
Cyanuric acid is the stabilizing agent for chlorine. Low levels will cause you chlorine level to drop very quickly. Be carefull when raising the Cyanuric acid level because there is no way to lower it other than removing some of the water and then refilling the pool.
Chlorine is an element; chlorine / chloride ion is a BASEChlorine for swimming pool usage is made to be Chlorine neutral (7,0) as to not raise or lower the pH.
Muriatic Acid lowers the pH level in a pool.
