What does chlorine from a pool smell like?

Generally if chlorine level is maintained between 1-3ppm you should not smell chlorine. As the level rises it becomes noticable, however most complaints about chlorine smell are due to chloramines (even in a clear & clean pool), chlorine molecules which are bound by swimmer wastes and/or bacteria introduced to the pool. This problem can be confirmed by a reputable pool shop by testing your water. Fix it by oxidising your pool regularly during the swimming season and let the pool breathe by removing the cover for the following hour or so.
