    Safe Chlorine levels

    Hi there! I just shocked my pool, and I was wondering how low I have to let the chlorine level to drop before I can let people back in the pool. Using the pool calculator, my Cya is at 45 which puts my ideal chlorine range between 4-8. The shock level for the pool is 16. I told my wife and kid that we have to wait until the chlorine gets down to 8 which could take 3-4 days at the rate we loose chlorine. We have some hot days coming up, so I was just curious if I could let them in any sooner?

    Thanks!

    The general consensus around here is that anything below shock level is fine. If the pool is clear, I'd swim at 15 and below.
