Thread: Maximum safe chlorine

    Maximum safe chlorine

    The Chlorine/CYA chart tells me to shock my pool to 20 or 24 ppm.

    What level is the maximum that is safe for swimming after shocking?

    24' Round Vinyl-lined AG, 14K Gal., Hayward Xstream 1500 Cartridge filter w/ powerflow Matrix pump, Hayward H200 Heater, plus one ribbit

    Re: Maximum safe chlorine

    Many folks here feel safe swimming at or near shock levels. Just wear an old bathing suit!! (This does NOT apply to small children who have a tendency to drink the pool...)

    8000 gallon 20' x 48" round vinyl frame pool, 12" sand filter (don't have the specs on the pump), TF100 test kit

    "Shock" is a process, not a product!
