    New pool just got filled. Dichlor question

    My husband of the year has our new 18 x 54 Sharkline Matrix pool up and running. I have been in charge of Pool school. Water truck showed up at 8 pm Friday night and filled the pool. I used the pool calculator and added 71 ounces of bleach so we could swim yesterday. We forgot to add the dichlor last night-only to be used for the next 4 days per pool school. I tested the chlorine and PH with my taylor K-1000-dailey test kit- and the results are spot on. Want to start adding the dichlor. How soon can we swim today after we add the dichlor?. I will update my signature and post the pictures of the pool construction. Love BBB

    Use, down near the bottom where it says Effects of adding chemicals. See what the dichlor will do to things. As long as the FC is below shock level, you can go swimming.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    Wait about an hour after adding chemicals before you swim.

    How soon can we swim today after we add the dichlor?
    Very quickly. (give maybe about an hour, depending on how you add it) It will dilute and spread throughout the pool quickly...swimming/activity will help with that distribution.

    Nice work on calculating and understanding your dosages.
