    high FC

    We have been shocking our pool to clear up cloudy water. Its finely clear and now the FC is just down to 14. Is it ok to swim with FC at this level or do we need to wait until it drops closer to the normal range.

    That depends on your CYA level. Swimming is fine at anything below shock level for your CYA level. See the Chlorine/CYA Chart in Pool School.

    It is safe below shock level.
