Visiting the folks, and I used to take care of the pool as a kid with my dad. Now my brother does it. When we did it, it was a baquacil pool with a powder filter, and honestly, really clean! Brother changed it to chlorine either this spring or last.
I come home to visit and the pool is a cloudy emerald. Brother says he recently shocked it to the point of having the backyard reek of bleach. The FC was low, but on the scale (test strips :/) so we add three gallons of shock and the skimmer is full of pucks. It's a 34k gal inground with a soft liner and a newer sand pump. I brushed it the next morning. It's been two days since.
People haven't been in it much this summer and the pump has been on solidly for a week.
Today it's moderately cloudy, but blue. I can see the bottom but it's really hazy. He said last time he added floc it cleared really well...
...but I leave today. I'd been looking forward to a swim.
Is it safe health-wise to take a dip? I can dip a strip to check levels. I'm pregnant and don't want to end up with infections, but it sounds more overchemicaled than under.
