    Is it safe to swim

    I have a pump problems before and my pool turned green. I get it back to almost normal. The water is not 100% clear but no algae. My question is since I bring the chlorine level to shock (about 20) is it safe to swim in it right now? What is the safe chlorine level? My wife is 9 months pregnant and would like to swim too.

    If you can see the bottom and have between the minimum recommended and shock level of FC in the pool it's safe to swim.

    Okay. Yes I can see the bottom very well but it's still little bit cloudy.
