Chlorine: Inexpensive and easily available, chlorine is the chemical most commonly used in swimming pools and hot tubs to kill bacteria that can spread disease. Used in concentrations of 1 to 4 parts per million, chlorine helps keep pool water at the recommended pH level of 7.2 to 7.8. However, chlorine breaks down into different chemicals that have been blamed for itchy skin, difficulty breathing, asthma and other ailments. If released into the environment, chlorine can cause low-level harm to organisms living in the water and soil, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
