    Will fountain affect Chlorine levels?

    Question. I am still working on clearing up the pool, and maintaining shock levels, but as I learn about the BBB method and how to better maintain my pool, I thought about the floating fountain I usually pull out and hook to one of the return lines in mid-summer, just to cool the water down when it feels like a bathtub in July/August.

    I was thinking about hooking it up to help aeriate and raise pH levels too, now that I know that is an option. But that led to the question which never occured to me before: will using a fountain cause chlorine loss? I know there is added evaporation when running it, or at least would think so, even with every drop coming back down in the middle of the pool.

    Thanks!
    Jim

    It shouldn't affect your chlorine levels, but may affect the amount of water evaporation
