Around the turn of the century, pool owners considered chlorine a miracle chemical. And for the most part, chlorine killed the germs, bacteria and algae that turns a pool green. What they didn’t know was chlorine had some very serious side effects, sometimes much worse than the bacteria and algae it was intended to eliminate. Since then, scientists have determined that these side effects are not only bad for us, but harmful to our environment.
Standard levels of chlorine in pool water can be a significant contributor to chlorine in the environment. When chlorine enters waterways where it mixes with organic compounds. These organic compounds then react with chlorine to form chloro-organic compounds, such as chloroform and other known carcinogens.
