    I have a 15,000 gal pool and just put Endure in and the suggested amount of muric acid. How soon can we swim? Oh, I use Baquacil for all of my chemicals.

    How soon can we swim after the chemicals are put in? I have a baquacil pool, put Endure in yesterday and the suggested amount of Muradic Acid. Would like to swim today. Will it be safe?

    Yes, swim

    In almost all cases you can swim an hour after adding chemicals with the pump running the whole time. As long as PH is in range, the sanitizer level is appropriate, and the water is clear, an hour will be plenty.

    I work at a pool store and we sell Baquacil. The main components to the system are sanitizer & algistat which is very similar to the sanitizer they use in hospitals...oxidizer which is strong provide, and CDX a oxidizer preservative and water mold preventative. You can be in the pool within minutes of adding those. As for endure/optimize plus, an hour like the above said.
