Most of the pool chemicals commonly used don't "run out", they evaporate, like your chlorine does. Boiling the water should do the trick, but it depends on what you use in your pool. Not everything evaporates, but a simple taste should tell you if there's a problem with the water, without it causing one in YOU.
Read the ingredients in your chemicals. See if there's a safer for humans choice if one of them gives you cause for concern. And, read this thread here: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=61354&hilit=+pool+source Lots of good info in it, on this very topic.
