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.

It is safe. That just means that the chlorine is not actively killing bacteria. It would be unsafe if there was too much chlorine.
