Avocado Tree Leaves Turning Brown

My avocado tree started growing brown on the leaves. How would I check if it's root bound?

The only way I know of to check if a plant is root bound is to pull the whole thing out of the pot and look.
Avocado trees are just that, trees. They prefer to be in the ground. I had one in my back yard (California coastal valley) that was about 30 feet tall and put out hundreds of avocadoes.
The older leaves do turn brown, dry up and fall off. This is natural.

I don't know if this is true or not, but I've heard that this is from using chlorinated water when you water your plant.
