    How to wait after adding liquid chlorine to go in swimming?

    Hi,

    I would like to know how long I should wait before swimming if I add liquid chlorine to the pool.
    I'm trying to keep the level up to my CYA and it's sunny, hot and humid this week.

    Thanks, Patty

    20-30 minutes with the pump running should be sufficient time to circulate teh chlorine around. That is assuming the level is below your shock level
