    Quick question ab my high fc level

    I added bleach to the pool to maintain shock level. According to the cya/fc chart need to be above 16. Didnt realize my mom already added it so now fc level is up to 27. Will that hurt anything being that high or do I need to do something about it. I feel sure it will drop overnite since it has been for a week now. Water is almost clear but still cloudy in deep end. Any thoughts?

    It'll come down on it's own and you are probably fine. I wouldn't worry

    There's a very slim chance it might bleach the liner, but you're only at mustard shock level, so i wouldn't worry. It will go down by itself.
