We just bought the house with a pool and only have a couple usable weeks left and have been fighting cloudy water and now and turned green overnight. Test kit was ordered so still waiting no it to arrive and figure we are going to have to start a SLAM as soon as it does but my kids will want to swim as much as possible since our usuable pool weather is nearing the end. I know our CYA level is way too high as previous home owner used pucks but too late to drain it now and just trying to make it as usable as possible for the remainder of the summer.
So when is it safe or not safe to swim? Can the kids swim during SLAM process?
