Most pool owners would consider chlorine to be a beneficial chemical in the ecosystem of their pool. While there are many pool owners that would err on the side of over chlorination in the water, it’s important to know more about the dangers of over chlorinating your pool.
Throughout the past decade, over 500 people in just the state of California have gone to the hospital or faced serious health consequences of swimming with too much chlorine. Too much chlorine often occurs in incidences of public pools where faulty equipment was to blame. Whether you are running a public pool or you’re managing the ecosystem of your home pool, it’s important to regularly inspect her equipment and to check on chlorine levels regularly.
Following manufacturer’s instructions and not exceeding the amount of chlorine specified will help to improve the lifespan of your pool and make sure that no ill health effects will be caused to people that choose to come and enjoy your pool. Whether you use chlorine in a solid or liquid form, it’s important to be careful with this chemical.
Chlorine is a pesticide and it’s used to destroy germs but it can also affect human health. Too much chlorine exposure can cause health issues such as irritated skin, coughing, throat pain, nose running, eye irritation, asthma and more.
Proper balance inside your pool is just one aspect of safety you’ll need to consider. Proper handling as you are managing your pool chemicals is also important. You need to dispose of pool chemicals and their packaging according to all label instructions and you’ll also need to be careful as you are opening up your coordinator, pump and other materials that interact with chlorine in your pool system.
