Thread: safe to swim in shock?

    safe to swim in shock?

    I know I have read it before but can't seem to find the info. Is it safe to swim in a pool that is up to shock level. I'm having a problem with over night loss of 3.5 so I am shocking. Pool is in direct sun most of the day. I have a 2 year old Grandson and just want to make sure it is ok to swim.

    Thanks

    Can you post your current CYA and FC levels?

    I have a post under Testing an d Balancing your water ( cloudy Water) My CYA is 50...last night I added bleach to shock and had a 3.5 drop over night and CC of.5. I added up to shock again this morning. The water is still just a little cloudy. I will shock again when the sun goes down. Does that sound right?

    Thanks

    Yes, your pool is safe for swimming and, yes, bring it right back to shock value this evening.

    Although I would not be concerned about a 2 year old swimming in that level of chlorine...

    Wouldn't there be a concern that the algea, or bacteria which is causing the chlorine loss is still in the pool?
