Chlorine amount guide for inflatable pools

Do you have an inflatable pool of any size in your terrace top or backyard. By adding small amounts of Chlorine in it you will ensure that not only the pool is free from bad smells but this will also kill any harmful bacteria present in the pool.

In this article we will explain to you exact amount of chlorine you need to add to the inflatable pool to make it clean.

By book formula you have to add 0.013 ounces or 0.36 grams of chlorine per 100 gallons of pool water.

Do I need to add chlorine in my inflatable pool?

Before going into the discussion that what amount of chlorine should be added we should first decide that do we really need to add chlorine in inflatable pools. No doubt that chlorine is added in traditional swimming pools since decades due to its anti bacterial affect and cleaning properties.

However if you have large size inflatable pool it is neither possible nor economical for you to change the water every time you or your kids enter into the pool. Even if the water is just one day old it is wiser to add the required amounts of chlorine into it. This will also decrease chances of diarrhea if your kid accidentally intakes pool water through his mouth or nose.

Guidelines before going into measurements

For your ease we have mentioned the amount of chlorine for different pool sizes separately in ounces, grams and also in tea spoons (US). But it is always preferred that you don’t exceed the amounts mentioned in ounces and grams and for that you should weight the chlorine using any kitchen weighing scale.
