    safe to swim?

    with a CYA level of 75 and an FC level of 14 (SWG off and waiting for FC to come down in sun light), when would you consider swimming safe if not submerging your head? i was thinking of taking a dip if it gets down to FC 10 by this evening...

    It should be ok, might be rough on hair and suits. But that is almost half of your shock value for your CYA. IMHO

    From reading on here, it is safe to swim up to shock level based off of your CYA level.

    that heat will help your cause and assist with the FC drop. Enjoy the Dip!!
