    Can adding other chemicals change chlorine level?

    Just curious. Can adding salt, stabalizer or baking soda change my chlorine level? I don't think it should, but just wanted to know if I should expect a small drop after adding those.

    None of the normal chems you add to the pool should affect your FC level (except chlorine of course ).

    As 'bama said but what you add can have an effect on the FC's effectiveness.
