Chlorine Gas

Chlorine Gas

Chlorine gas is a very potent sanitizer and is the sanitizer of choice in most large public pools due to its extreme effectiveness and economy

The use of Chlorine gas can present problems as it is a toxic substance that is heavier than air and can therefore accumulate in poorly-ventilated pump-rooms

Chlorine gas is a pulmonary irritant with intermediate water solubility that causes acute damage to upper and lower respiratory tract 

Concentrations of 2000 ppm causes immediate respiratory arrest and just 150 ppm for one hour is lethal for babies and infants

Chlorine gas supports combustion in the same way that oxygen doesChlorine Gas warning label

Pool Companies that supply or maintain Gas Chlorination equipment (or the gas itself) must be issued with a license by the relevant Health and Safety authorities

For these reasons it is probably best to leave this one to the pros!
