Why does my pool water have a very strong chlorine smell?

Why does my pool water have a very strong chlorine smell? What you smell are chloramines. Chloramines form when there is an insufficient amount of free chlorine in the pool water to sanitize the pool. A chlorine shock treatment is needed to dissipate the chloramines and establish a free available chlorine level in the pool for effective water disinfection.
