Don't add so much chlorine. It will go down in a day or so.

Free chlorine is the sanitizing portion of chlorine. You may not want to reduce that. Are the levels excessive? There is a product which reduces or eliminates chlorine but beware. Not a good product if you use too much. What are your readings?


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.


Free Chlorine is the Chlorine which is free to do its work in the pool, as opposed to Combined Chlorine which is chlorine that has combined with contaminants and is tied up and ineffective as a sanitizer in the pool. Sometimes you will see it abbreviated as FAC, which stands for Free Available Chlorine.


No pool is maintenance free. There are options like, salt chlorine systems and automatic cleaners that help to reduce the maintenance but nothing is or should be free of maintenance.


Any one or thing swimming in the pool will reduce the amount of free chlorine available in the swimming pool. Dog hair body fats and other impurity's will take up free chlorine in the pool thereby reducing the amount of effective chlorine available. Dogs bring into the pool more contaminants than do humans for AA lot of various reasons.


Chlorine in water may be present in two forms, free and combined. Free chlorine does the hard work of killing bacteria and oxidizing contaminants. When you add chlorine to water, you are actually adding free chlorine. When the free chlorine combines with contaminants, it becomes combined chlorine, or chloramines. In water, this form of chlorine has very little sanitizing ability, and no oxidizing ability. Total chlorine is just the sum of both combined chlorine and free chlorine. Which measurement you use, free or total, depends on your testing needs.


chlorine in a swimming pool that is free.


Just shock it to break point and your at free chlorine.


Thiosulfate will neutralize chlorine. Buy it at a pool store.


chlorine present in free or bound form, or in both forms. In water treatment, free/residual chlorine is the amount of chlorine that is still available to do its job of disinfection. Bound chlorine is chlorine that has been used up. It is still in the water, but it is no longer available for disinfection.


Total chlorine contain the element in any form; free chlorine is only the molecule Cl2.


There is 3 measurements of chlorine in a pool or spa. Total chlorine, combined chlorine, and free available chlorine. Free available chlorine is the good chlorine that is active in the pool killings germs and algae. Combined chlorine is chlorine is basically chlorine that was once active but has killed germs or bacteria and is now inactive in the pool. Total chlorine is free available and combined chlorine added together. If your combined chlorine is higher than free available chlorine then the water needs to be shocked to eliminate the combined chlorine. But be careful here. If you don't reach what's called break point you will only add to the combined chlorine. There are products on the market which will only remove combined chlorine without effecting your free available chlorine if you are unsure about reaching breakpoint. Hope this helps.


If the actual chlorine reading is not too high (i.e. around 10ppm), suspend dosing and allow it to drop over a period of time. If the chlorine reading is significantly higher, or if you need to use the pool in the near future, add sodium thiosulphate to reduce the free chlorine. WARNING The recommended dose rate is 250 grams per 50 cubic metres. Apply this in several much smaller additions, testing after each dose. An overdose of thiosulphate can leave you with a chlorine deficit for a considerable time.


No, Chlorine is not a metal.


Total Chlorine = Free Chlorine + Combined Chlorineor, put another wayTotal Chlorine - Free Chlorine = Combined ChlorineFree Chlorine is the chlorine that is doing its job.Combined Chlorine is the chlorine that has combined with contaminants such as nitrogen. It is ineffective as a sanitizer and it is noxious.Total Chlorine is the total of these two levels.To eliminate the Combined Chlorine (making all the chlorine in the pool Free Chlorine) you must shock the pool to remove the contaminants. You must reach "Breakpoint Chlorination", which is the addition of chlorine to your pool equivalent to the Combined Chlorine level times 10.example:Total Chlorine = 1.5ppmFree Chlorine = 1.0ppmSo, the Combined Chlorine (the difference between the two tests) is .5ppmBreakpoint chlorination, in this example would be .5ppm X 10 = 5ppm. So, in this example, you would add enough chlorine to your pool to raise the chlorine level up by 5 parts per million.

You can opt for copper ionization technology for chlorine free swimming pool. Copper ionization technology is most healthiest alternative for chlorine free pools.


Chlorine residue? Chlorine is a gas that dissipates automatically over the course of many hours - that's why you have to add it every day. There is no "residue". To reduce the chlorine content of pool water, merely wait 24 hours - 48 if neccesary.


You need to shock the pool. The difference between Total Chlorine and Free Chlorine is tied up and it will be cleared by shocking. Thatis the purpose of shocking.


Just wait instill it dissipates. Or if the chlorine is being produced by a chlorinator reduce the chlorinator setting or reduce the amount of time it is running.


Free or residual chlorine is chlorine that is present in the form of hypochlorous acid, hypochlorite ions or as dissolved elemental chlorine. Bound chlorine is that fraction of the total chlorine that is present in the form of chloramines or organic chloramines. Total chlorine is that chlorine that is present in free or bound form, or in both forms. In water treatment, free/residual chlorine is the amount of chlorine that is still available to do its job of disinfection. Bound chlorine is chlorine that has been used up. It is still in the water, but it is no longer available for disinfection.


Get a new test kit or new test reagents. Total Chlorine is the measure of free and combined chlorine, therefore the free chlorine cannot be higher than the Total Chlorine. You can't put 10 gallons of water in a 5 gallon bucket.


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


no they dont you can buy of the internet chlorine free


Yes any sort of life in the pool will effect free chlorine.
