    First time SLAM'ing have questions

    My pool has been great all year by staying on top of it. We went away for 9 days and used the floating puck method to try and keep the pool somewhat clear. I kept my CYA generally between 40 and 50 and when we returned I had algae and the pucks brought my CYA up around 80. I did a partial drain and started slamming two days ago. The pool is now just cloudy looking but I did have to brush a minimal amount of algae off the floor this morning. My current numbers are as follows:

    FC 20
    CC .5
    TC 20.5
    PH 7.8
    TA 90
    CYA 60

    Based on the chart I have been bringing the Chlorine up to 24 over night. This morning it has dropped to 20. I will add it back up to 24 but if I wait a few hours, would it be safe to swim? I may even drain a little more water first. I have my nieces and nephew visiting for the weekend and that is all they want to do.

    What Woody said, but.....not safe if the cloudiness means you can't see bottom. That's just for safety.

    Thank you for the responses. It never got cloudy enough to not see the bottom so I guess I'm good.
