    Questions on first Slam/ Can I use my robotic vacuum?

    Hi,

    My pool was cloudy today and chlorine wouldn't hold when I kept adding it.

    I decided to slam this evening. I have a cya level of 50, so I was targeting a shock level of 20. I overshot and am at FC level of 28, showing CC of .5 now. I didn't test cc before I started (whoops!) Water is looking better...

    Can I use my robot tomorrow with chlorine levels this high? How long will it take when slam is over for levels to come back down to a swimable level? Season is almost over, I want to get it back in shape asap.

    Yes, you can use your robot with FC at SLAM levels. It is safe to swim up to SLAM level.

    Have you tested FC today and returned it back to 20 ppm?

    Good deal. With loss no more than that, your water must be clearing up nicely, right?
