Pool professionals or water system technicians can tell you better, but my memory says, if you smell chlorine then it is oxidizing bacteria. That's good, cause that's what it's supposed to do. But bad because it means you either have way too much chlorine , , OR bacteria is growing in the tank and it might be a good idea to sanitize the system.
We have really good water St home so I load up with, chlorine and all. Traveling if I fill up I use a really good filter. Better to be sure the bad stuff is not joining us even though I know that the filter is removing the chlorine too.
