    Cyanuric Acid and Swimming?

    I just put in stabilizer in a sock by my return line yesterday afternoon. Over half of the stabilizer is dissolved. Am I able to swim in the pool with the stabilizer still dissolving in the sock?

    As long as the pool is "safe" then yes.

    What is safe?

    -FC is below shock level

    -Water is clear enough so you can see the bottom in the entire pool

    CYA dissolving in a sock should not stop swimming.

    I usually give the sock some extra squeezing when I am in the pool.
