How often do you put chlorine in a pool?

Chlorine is an essential part of keeping a pool clean and safe to swim in. Without chlorine, bacteria and other contaminants can quickly take over, making the water unsafe. The frequency with which you need to add chlorine to a pool depends on a number of factors, including the size of the pool, the weather, the number of swimmers, and more.

Generally speaking, though, you should plan on adding chlorine to your pool at least once a week.
