There are 3 aspects which can be measured. We are concerned with free available chlorine in the water – chlorine that can act on foreign substances in the water to keep the pool clean and safe for the swimmers.
- Free available chlorine (or residual chlorine) – is the amount of chlorine in the pool that can sanitize or disinfect the water and is the important measurement for us.
- Combined chlorine – consists of undesirable, bad-smelling, irritating compounds which form when there isn’t enough free available chlorine.
- Total chlorine – is the total amount of chlorine in the water. It includes both free available and combined chlorine.
