    Adding chemicals

    Is there a rule of thumb for adding chems to the pool and how long before you can go back into the pool? My test kit just arrived and I will be doing a test tonight to see what i need to add. I know my ph is high going by the test stripes that came with the pool so after adding muriatic acid do you wait 24 hrs or can we swim sooner?

    Always add chems with pump running, and half an hour is fine.
