    Safe for me and dog to swim?

    Ok been learning and messing with water and testing all week. It's 82 out and would love to go swimming. I tested last night and all my fc was gone again but I also had no cay in there so it wasn't staying so I put my usual 4 cups in plus 3 extra thinking maybe today Fc level would be perfect. I also added instant conditioner to get that up. Well aparently too much bleach was added And the conditioner kept it from evaporating.

    Test results:
    PH 7.4
    FC 11
    TA 230
    CH 240
    CA 35ish right in between 30 and 40.

    No combined clorine

    Or do I need to wait until fc burns off.
    15ft round above ground pool, Vinyl Liner, Used Polygroup Pool Unknown pumps. Single pump skimmer, solar blanket. Just for me and my lab. Will update more as I learn more.

    Go swimming. Shock level for 30 CYA is 12 FC, and you're below that.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
