The most common way to kill bacteria in your pool and keep your swimming pool water healthy is to use chlorine. Before using chlorine, it is important to have a correct water balance first. Once this has been achieved, chlorine levels between 1.0-3.0 mg/l should be satisfactory to preserve bacteria free swimming pool water. There are two ways to tell if your pool is a well-managed chlorine treated swimming pool is that
it will have no odour and the level of chloramines will be less than 0.5 mg/l. Here at Cascade Pools we have a wide range of swimming pool chemicals for you to choose from to suit your swimming pool requirements.
