    Adding pool/spa scent

    I wasn't sure where to post this, has anyone added any of the pool/spa scents to their pool? Do they cause any damage or any reason not to add them?

    Hi jamie1983:

    I have not seen these, but my M.O. is not to add anything to the pool that is not needed. A pool that is in good shape should not have an odor of any kind. If by chance you are smelling a strong "chlorine" odor, that is an indicator of high CC's and a need to go through the Shock Process.

    A good test kit is an investment, not an expense.

    No the pool smells fine, when I was younger we had a hot tub and had scents you could add. I've seen a number of pool and spa scents and was just curious.

    We often add spa fragrance when using the spa. It makes it, well, a more spa like experience. I have never had any pool issues from using it. We usually use the fragrance from Home Depot.
