    How do I keep chlorine in the pool?

    We have an automatic chlorinator and set it to the highest setting but we still have readings at almost no chlorine in the pool. We have a black bottom pool, so it is staying about 81-85 degrees. We have added shock to the pool to get it to register the chlorine also. We have an ozone, chlorinator and mineral system for the pool. Is the chlorinator not working or are we doing something wrong?

    Please read pool school. It in the upper right hand corner of every page on this site and is covered there.

    This section is for the discussions that get in deeply into topics such as actual chemical reactions, equations, physics, etc...

    You most likely have an algae bloom starting. Read Pool School and it will clear up some things.
    We'll also need a set of test resullts.
