    Slamming pool, safe to swim?

    I have been slamming my pool
    Is it safe to swim?

    TF-100 test results below from yesterday afternoon(6 pm)

    22.5 free chlorine
    .5 combined chlorine
    23 total chlorine
    300 calcium
    100 total alkalinity
    40 cya

    Pool is almost done slamming my water is clear but I still see a little yellow algae when I brush and the filter looked better than earlier. So I am planning on doing the chlorine loss test tonight.

    Generally we say no, that FC must be < than shock level ... and if your are less than shock level, then you are not SLAMing.

    Okay I will hope the night test comes back favorable so I can return FC to normal levels.
