What happens when you put too much chlorine in a pool?

Putting too much chlorine in a pool can make the water unsafe to swim in, as exposure to the chemical can cause skin and eye damage, and also provoke lung irritation and asthma. Chlorine also increases the acidity in your pool, which can lead to corrosion of pool walls.

Swimming in a shocked pool puts you at risk of skin or eye irritation at the very least. At the worse, the high exposure to chlorine could lead to lung irritations or an asthma attack to those vulnerable.
