Well you need to go to a pool store so they can tellvyou what to o
add a PH reducer chemical
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.
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.
Most pools use chlorine as a disinfectant and the pH level has a significant effect in the disinfectant properties of chlorine. The active disinfectant in chlorine is hypochlorous acid. The proportion of hypochlorous acid present in chlorine is greater at lower pH levels. However, if the pH level goes too low, it will become corrosive and start attacking the fabric of surfaces it comes into contact with. Therefore, there ideal recommended range for pH levels in swimming pools is 7.2 - 7.6.
You add water to the pool
Yes. 7% in each bottle of water is chlorine. +++ Are you sure about that level? Mains water chlorine levels are about 2ppm; swimming-pools use 2 -4 ppm. That's far, far lower than that 7%: you'd be drinking bleach!
I didn't but my chlorine level is high and I don't know what to use to lower it.
The half life of chlorine is one hour. If it is 30ppm at 10am. It will be 15ppm at 11am. Then 7.5ppm at 12pm. But at 1pm it will level off at the ppm that is adequetly protected by stabilizer(cyanuric acid). 40ppm of stabilizer protects 6ppm of chlorine. So, if you have 40ppm of stabilizer in pooll, you will have 6ppm of chlorine at 1pm. Now to lower chlorine you will either drain poolwater or add 8 oz. of ammonia a day until desired chlorine level. BE CAREFUL!!! ammonia eats up stabilizer, sodium bicarb, and chlorine. Only add correct amount!!!!
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 manufacture for instructions on how to use with your swimming pool. Hope this helps!! ANSWERWhile 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.
In simplest terms, an above ground pool pump is a flooded suction pump, which means the water level must be higher than the pump for it to operate, and an inground pump has the ability to draw water up from a level lower than the pump. The engineering and structure of these two different types of pumps is what makes them work the way they do. This means that, in a typical installation, you could use an inground-specific pump on an above ground pool, but not an above ground pump on an inground pool with the water level below the pump.
if you are floating chlorine tabs take them out it the chlorine will eventually turn back to it's natural state which is a gas and just simply go away
Hydrogen peroxide react with chlorine.The reaction is the following:H2O2 + Cl2 = 2 HCl + O2
A good way to lower chlorine is to give it a day without the cover in the sunlight. The sunlight will lower your chlorine significantly.
No. You will also get a bad smell or odor from your pool water. Where did you get this idea????
Generally...no. In simplest terms, an above ground pool pump is a flooded suction pump, which means the water level must be higher than the pump for it to operate, and an inground pump has the ability to draw water up from a level lower than the pump.

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
No. You can go to 10.0. Now if you have a vinyl liner that chlor level might have to be lower. k
You may need to go to a much lower setting or turn it off for a brief period.
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.
Chlorine is used as a sanitizer, muriatic acid is used to lower pH
Muriatic acid will not lower the Harness(calcium chloride)level in a swimming pool. Dilution is the only effective method to lower the calcium hardness level. Muriatic acid is used to lower the pH and total alkalinity of pool water.
Add Muriatic Acid. Always check your pool chemistry after changing the pH.
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.
