    high chlorine and auto vacs

    Just finished slamming a pool. The owner wants to put in his tiger
    Shark auto vac.

    Should I advise him to wait to put in the machine at those cl levels, or go ahead
    And put it in?

    I don't see any harm it could do to it for a day. That will exposed it to the higher FC and it will decontaminate it if it was exposed to any of the organics before the SLAM.

    It will not hurt a thing. Put it in.
