Thread: Clorine level too high

  1. Back To Top    #1

    Clorine level too high

    Had my water tested and was told that my clorine levels were too high and that I should purchase some expensive instant conditioner. Since I did not like the sales person, I did not buy it.
    Any recommendations on how to adjust (lower) the clorine level?

    Time and sunlight. What is the chlorine level and what is the CYA level?

    How high was it. Most pool stores go with the recommendation that 2.5-3.0 FC is normal. However, I let my kids swim when it is 7-8 or sometimes even 8-9 FC. How high did they say it was...because High to the poolstore my be normal to most of us.
