What is free chlorine in a pool?

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.


What is free chlorine?

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.


What is free chlorine and total chlorine?

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.


What is the difference between free chlorine and free residual chlorine?

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.


What chemical do you add when free chlorine is low?
