    Baby Doo Doo and Shock

    Well, it was bound to happen. One month into our first swimming season, our 1 year old had diarrhea in his swim diaper and next thing I know, little fuzzy brown stuff is floating around me.

    We just added the bleach to shock the pool, but was wondering - provided it passes the overnight test, how soon can the kids swim again? Do we have to wait for the FC to get back down to 5-ish?

    This is the first time we've had to shock the pool, outside of the opening.

    While it is safe to swim in pool up to shock level, I would be more prudent in your case and not allow anyone to enter until you had performed the OCLT and then I think I would tack on another 24 hours of shock value FC....sorta like belt and suspenders.....extra cautious.

    I'd keep it at shock for at least 24 hours.

    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!
