    After adding CYA

    How long should we wait to swim after adding CYA? I didn't see any notes on the container and couldn't find a topic on it here.

    Note: I'm adding using the sock method.

    If it is just slowly dissolving in a sock that could take up to a week. But I am pretty sure there is no problem swimming while it is dissolving assuming your water is clear and your FC level is appropriate.

    You're done SLAMing when:
    1)You lose 1ppm or less FC overnight, & 2)You have .5ppm CC's or less, & 3)your water is clear.

    I agree with Jason. I don't think you will have any issue swimming in the pool right away!
