Chlorine and Line/reel/lure

Recommended Posts

I just got a ne BC reel, and a new rod. i was practicing casting in my pool, and it dawned on me i might be messing up my new gear.

the rage shad started to change colors, but i guess it was just some of the chlroine fromt he bottom of the pool, cuz it wiped right off.

will the chlorine mess anything up too bad?

I would definitely put new line on and probably clean everything good.  Chlorine is pretty bad stuff on things not designed to be in it.

Chlorine becomes a gas at 78° F.  Warm water rinse should remove any residual chlorine.  I'd check and replace the line that was in the pool, though.

If your pool water is properly kept- don't worry about it. With free chlorine at 2-3 ppm and a ph in the low to mid 7's , your tap water rinse is potentially more "damaging" than your pool water. ;)

I made the mistake of checking our tap water after having a time with the pool.... I no longer drink our tap water, as my pool is a much more balanced water than what comes from our taps!

I have checked the running of spinnerbaits and the like in pool water and never did anything to the reel/line/bait afterwards. No problems even using the same reel/line/bait. If your nervous about it then rinse the reel/line/baits..

Tight Lines!!!
