Ask Kim: What Are Some Signs That My Pool Has Too Much Chlorine?

Most pools you’re familiar with contain chlorine – and for good reasons. Chlorine can help rid the pool of infections by keeping the water clean but too much can cause health-related problems. Chlorine is a very strong chemical and when found in high concentration, it can cause skin irritations and burning in addition to breathing problems.
The question then becomes, how do you get the right balance to keep your pool clean without harming swimmers?
Here are some signs your pool has too much chlorine:
  • Burning and itchy eyes
  • Skin irritation
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Other asthma-like symptoms
You’ll want to test your chlorine levels using strips or liquid drops to make sure you have a true chlorine problem.
