    Red Eyes

    Has anyone had red eyes swimming in a SWG pool? Had a kid complain he had red eyes. However he was swimming under water with eyes open for like 3-4 hours. Our levels are good:

    FC - 4.5
    CC - 0
    pH - 7.5
    TA - 110
    CH - 250
    CYA - 90
    Salt - 3,400
    Temp - 89

    I know they advertise no red eyes etc with SWG's but I'm sure if anyone swims with their eyes open under water for long periods its bound to irritate eyes.

    Red eyes are usually due to pH changes. Swimming under water without goggles for several hours would make anyone's eyes red I would think. Eyes are very sensitive to the environment that they are exposed to.
