Chlorine level way too high!!

Postby bullyrider » Wed 03 Jun, 2009 06:06

Can someone tell me what I need to do to lower it? It's been high right from the start this year. All this week I haven't even had any tablets in the skimmer and it's still registering high.

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

What level? How do you test it? IS it free or total chlorine?

Leave the pool exposed to the sun. If the reading is only like 5ppm or so then swimming in it will drop it fast too.
