    5 year old just had a diarrhea accident in the pool

    From searching the forums here it looks like close the pool and super-chlorinate. How long should I wait before allowing people back in the pool?

    Chemistry was good when the accident happened.

    My opinion is that you need to be able to pass the OCLT.

    Try the search using "fecal accident." There's a bunch there.
    16K freeform gunite with spa; Pentair 4000 DE filter; Century Whisperflow 1 HP; Pentair Minimax heater.

    My search for "code brown" wasn't very effective.

    Just shock the pool. Keep it at shock level for 3 or 4 days while running the filter 24/7. You should be okay. This is not an uncommon problem.
