Chlorine smell increased a lot and I decided to check Chlorine levels with a 2 way tester. My neighbour has been taking care of the pool.
Pool dimensions are 32 x 18 x 6 feet.
My neihbour has been pouring 1 lb of chlorine every day.
According to test kit, chlorine color should be yellow and a value of 1.0 to 1.5 is regarded as "ideal". In my tests Chlorine color turned into RED. Stopped pouring chlorine for 6 days and tester color turned into dark yellow (was red 6 days ago). Still not at the desired level.
At the end of 6 days PH value is 7.0 to 7.2
I think my neighbour overuses chlorine. It was smelling a lot of chlorine, even the swimming suits smell.
1) how often should I pour chlorine? Is there a shedule or do I monitor chlorine level and pour accordingly?
2) which test kit is a good kit?
