What is the use of chlorine?

Chlorine is a water treatment product used to disinfect your pool. Indeed, this oxidant has many benefits allowing, among other things, to stop the development of algae, eliminate bacteria and sterilize the water. Chlorine is often used because typically it is the cheapest product on the market. In addition, it is important to know that chlorine is considered an odorless substance. Indeed, in contact with water, a substance called chlorine is released and gives off the smell of chlorine that we know. It is important to note that the smell of chlorine becomes concentrated when it is contaminated.


How often should I put chlorine in my pool?


It can be difficult to find how often chlorine should be used. To facilitate this process it is recommended to obtain a chlorine test kit. There are two kinds of kits: manual and digital. Regardless of the option chosen, it is important to ensure that the pH level of the pool is between 7.2 and 7.6. Also, it is important to keep the chlorine level between 1 and 1.5. During the summer season, it is important to check these elements about twice a week.


How long after putting on the chlorine is it recommended to swim in the pool?

It is very important not to swim within 24 hours of the chlorine treatment. Indeed, this treatment must be carried out when the water in your pool has a greenish color. A treatment like this raises the amount of chlorine and can be very harmful to the skin and/or eyes. On the other hand, if you use a filtration treatment, it is possible to swim 12 hours after it.


Tips and Advice

  • It is important to maintain the skimmer and filters of your pool.
  • Take the time to clean the scum
  • Sweep the bottom of your pool
  • Don't forget to scrub the walls of the pool with a long-handled push broom


Finally, remember that the secret to a perfect interview is the time you devote to it.
