    Safe to swim?

    Added bleach last night to pool to try to kill some algae on tanning ledge.

    Tested pool and have an fc of 14.5, cc 2.5, cya coming up 0... So I need to increase that.

    My question is... Is t safe to swim with the fc of 14.5?

    If your CYA is zero then no, that is far too high to swim with no CYA to buffer it.

    It is safe to swim when
    FC is above minimum and up to shock level for your CYA, FC/CYA Chart
    PH is 7.2 to 7.8
    Water is clear
