    Dead Bird + Pool Party

    Just got a call from the Mrs. The kids had some friends over & while swimming, they found a dead bird in the pool. They were concerned it may not be safe to continue swimming, so I walked her through the FC / CC test and it was 3.5 PPM FC and 0 CC, so I gave it an all-clear. Is there anything else to consider here?

    Whether it's large enough to make a mid afternoon bbq snack?

    Shouldn't be a problem for you. For the bird - YES. I don't know your CYA to match the appropriate FC level, but perhaps consider (just for peace of mind) bumping-up your FC slightly today/this evening after the kids are done. Other than that, enjoy your swimming season.
