    swimming in low FC?

    Right now I'm having trouble keeping my FC up. My TC is at 2 and my free chlorine is near 0. I may not be able to shock to bring up my levels for a couple of days. What, if any, are the consequences of swimming in a pool with low or no free chlorine??

    Bacteria, viruses and other pathogens can be transferred from one swimmer to another.

    If FC is very close to, or at, zero I would not swim.
