As Salamu Alaykum
I wanted to check whether it would be permissible and valid to perform ghusl in a swimming pool with chlorine water.
Country: United States
Wa alaykum salam wa rahmatuLlahi wa barakatuHu,
If the chlorine changes the water to such an extent that it would no longer be considered (absolute) water, but rather “chlorine water,” then it would not be allowed, i.e. it would be pure but not purifying. (Mughni al-Muhtaj v. 1, p. 116-18)
And Allah knows best.
