Pool Chemical Storage

What Are Pool Chemicals?

Swimming pool chemicals include a variety of disinfectants and sanitizers designed to control the growth of algae, bacteria and other forms of infectious organisms. Chlorine is the most common pool chemical storage type of disinfectant and sanitizer used to clean pools. Chlorine gas is commonly used for cleaning large pools.

Proper Storage Solutions

Proper pool chemical storage in a compliant chemical storage building will result in fewer risks of spills, cross-contamination, container damage, and exposure to personnel. Storage tips are listed below to ensure safety and compliance.
  • Store pool chemicals separately. Pool chemicals are incompatible and can react, resulting in fires or toxic gas. A ventilation system may be required to help prevent the buildup of harmful fumes.
  • Segregate chlorine products (ex. store liquid chlorine separate from calcium hypochlorite). Use shelving or racks to help stay organized.
  • Do not allow chemicals to contact acids, greases, oils or other lubricants.
  • Keep chemicals stored in a cool, dry atmosphere.
  • Avoid direct sunlight and high heat.
  • Store chemicals in the original, manufacturer’s container.
  • Keep up with routine inspections to control container damage. Properly clean up spills and leaks. Do not dispose of chemicals in the trash or sewer.
  • Store pool chemicals in a locked chemical storage building, equipped with an EPA compliant sump containment.
  • Use designated tools for each type of chemical to avoid cross contamination.
  • Ensure an Emergency Response Plan is in place.

Pool Chemical Storage – Handling

To ensure workers are safe, chemical handling must be properly managed. Only trained personnel should handle or store these chemicals. Safe practices include reading product labels or Safety Data Sheets (SDS) before handling, utilization of labeled containers (do not use unlabeled containers), and the usage of appropriate handling and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
