I’ve added large doses of shock, but I’m unable to maintain a chlorine reading. What’s wrong?

You most likely have what is called Combined Chlorine or Chloramines.  This occurs when free available chlorine residual combines with nitrogen-containing compounds such as urine, sweat, or other contaminants from swimmers or the environment.  This can be a frustrating and expensive problem to treat.  Our chemical lab can test your water and prescribe a treatment.  It usually involves adding large amounts of chlorine until you have reached a chlorine residual.  You have other options other than to continue to add large amounts of chlorine. We can walk you through the treatments.
