    Swimming after Shocking Process

    Hello!

    I've been working some really long hours lately and I missed 3 days last week of adding bleach. My water looked good however the bottom was slippery. I wasted no time and started shocking. I shocked and brushed all weekend at 15 ppm. (Per Pool Calculator) This morning I had only lost 1 ppm over night and had no CC's. At noon today we are at 13 ppm.

    Are we ok to swim at 13 ppm or should we wait for the sun to burn some off? My normal is 5 ppm with 40 CYA.

    Thanks for the help!
