Chlorine neutralizes harmful pathogens found in pool water. As a disinfectant, it works by destroying the pathogen’s cell membranes and DNA, rendering them harmless and ultimately killing them. The concentration of chlorine required to kill pathogens varies depending on the type of pathogen and other factors like water pH and temperature.
In addition to its disinfectant properties, chlorine also plays a vital role in maintaining water clarity and pool water balance. Maintaining pool pH control and being able to balance total alkalinity is essential to keeping the water free from algae growth and ensuring it’s not too acidic or too basic.
While it has its benefits, chlorine is expensive and can contribute to skin, eye, and lung issues.
