Well after an enjoyable winter of maintaining my own pool via all I've learned here, we are finally in the season to actually swim in it! I was wondering how much time should be allowed after certain chemicals are added before swimming:
Chlorine - I use the 10% sodium hypochlorite liquid chlorine and keep my FC around 7 or 8 (my CYA is a bit high). So in my pool, my FC moves from 6 to 7 with 16 ounces. First, I assume it is fine to swim in water with FC at 7 or 8, correct? If I dump in one or two pints, do I just need to wait for it to circulate?
Muriatic acid - I use the liquid to maintain PH. My PH doesn't move real fast, just goes up slowly so I only add some occasionally. Same question on wait time. Obviously this is dangerous stuff!
CH increaser (calcium chloride) - I don't have to add that very often, but I'd assume with that 24 hours would be smart. Thoughts?
My numbers today:
FC - 6 (put in two pints LC to bring up to 8)
PH - 7.7
TA - 80
CH - 330
CYA - 80
temp - 84
Thanks for any feedback.
