The chlorine levels in a pool can fluctuate depending on the type of bather and the contaminants in the water. When used properly, pool chlorine can kill bacteria and remove them from the water. However, it can also cause algae and nitrates to enter the water.
You will need to reach the breakpoint chlorination step in order to break up the bound chlorine in the pool. This process involves raising the chlorine level to a high enough that it will start burning off all the contaminants.
Pro Tip: If you can "smell chlorine," this indicates that the chlorine is combined with ammonias and no longer sanitizing the water. Shocking the water will free up effective chlorine and eliminate this smell.
