    What FC level is too high to swim in while shocking

    I am in the process of shocking and have been for past week. Cya 38, FC 19 this morn and Im trying to keep it around there per the cya/fc chart. My question is my kids are dying to swim (pool is almost clear but not quite) but I havent let them yet.. I am wondering at what level is it too high for them to swim. Is it ok for them to swim for a little while or not a good idea. I dont wanna harm them or the shocking process either. Thanks for any help

    Assuming CC is .5 or less, you can clearly see kids under water and FC is at or below normal shock level for the CYA level, it's okay.

    however, it is best to just keep everyone out until you are done shocking

    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.

    Easy button answer...they'll be fine. Maybe a quick rinse with a hose afterwards.

    Long answer.....makes for a good read.
