    FC too high to swim?

    FC level early this am was 13.5. My CYA is about 0 after losing it over winter. Pool is clear and everything else is in check.

    If the kids swim will it bother them with the FC at 13.5?

    With 0 CYA, that's too much chlorine. That said, it'll be gone soon because of the 0 CYA.

    Get some CYA in your pool and then consult the FC/CYA chart in Pool can swim up to shock value
