Nitrogen Trichloride is what the air smells of in swimming pools. Chlorine in the swimming pool water reacts with body proteins such as sweat and urine to form chloramines, the most prevalent and volatile of which is nitrogen trichloride.

We have a separate page dedicated to asthma and swimming pools, please click on the link to view.

Generally good ventilation and a minimal amount of residual chlorine in the water are the key points for a well run swimming pool (from an air quality point of view).

Nitrogen trichloride is also used as a disenfectant in some cleaning agents.

Oasys Notifications for Nitrogen Trichloride

The Oasys Audit scheme started midway through 2010 and collects agents typed in through the Oasys program. The years before 2010 show old data entered during 2010 or later and are likely to have many fewer notifications. We expect Oasys to become more widely adopted as time goes by so increasing notifications does not necessarily mean an increasing problem.
