My husband is the president of our HOA, and our community pool management company said that the pool is safe to swim in even though the pump has been down since Tuesday. The chlorine levels are off the chart - not surprising as he informed us he has been shocking it every morning to try to keep the pool open. The water is very cloudy. The ph levels appear to be in the normal range based on the test kit we purchased from the local hardware store. I guess the bottom line is how do we tell if the pool is safe to swim in or if we should close it down.
