    Swimming after 5lbs of conditioner

    Hi everyone,

    Just a quick question. I just put in about 5lbs of conditioner in a 10 gallon pool and was wondering how soon we could swim in the pool? The kids are begging.

    I would wait till it's all dissolved. You may have a slight PH drop from the stabilizer, it's acidic.

    thank you. I'll wait a few hours. I did dissolve most of it in a bucket and then poured it through skimmer. But it seems best to wait awhile.

    I don't know why it says that. I never made a signature and I can't seem to be able to edit it in the profile settings.

    Cyanuric Acid dissolves somewhat slowly so in the future if you want to go swimming while it's still dissolving that's OK. If you are dissolving through a T-shirt in the skimmer, there's no problem (just make sure you've got either a skimmer bypass or floor drains so the pump still has flow to it). If you are hanging a sock in front of a return, then if the kids are young enough to want to play with it then you don't want them in, but if they will just leave it alone it should be safe. You don't want to do something like squeeze the sock and then dunk your head to get water with that concentrate in your eyes, but other than that it won't harm you.
