Definition

A chemical added to the water in a swimming pool to kill bacteria and microorganisms that can make people sick.

Cost Considerations

When it comes to types of chlorine, the different types are best suited to different types of pools, such as small or large, indoor or outdoor, etc. The 3 inch tablets are the cheapest by weight ($2 to $4 per lb), but may be too large for smaller pools, and also take longer to dissolve than smaller tablets.
