    Dropped my CYA Sock :(

    I dropped my CYA sock into the pool. It was mostly dissolved, so I couldn't tell if there was any CYA in it. I dropped it in while untying it, and now there's little white granules floating around in the pool. Not a lot of them, but they exist. Are they harmful to me or the pool if I swim, or can I just ignore them aside from the inevitable minor discomfort from steppage, so long as everyone in the pool rinses off afterward?
    1) 620 Gallon
    2) I think the filter is a cartridge. It's white paper between two blue rubber endcaps.
    3) Above Ground
    4) Vinyl sides
    5) Don't know, Tiny.
    6) Within the last two months?

    As Fast said, don't worry about it. It's a very weak acid and safe to handle a few granules.
