    Is it safe to swim before conducting oclt in slam?

    I have been slamming for 4 days and my water is finally clear yet I have not done a OCLT yet. Is it safe to swim in?

    Here are my numbers:

    FC = 3
    CC= 3
    CYA = ~20 still low
    pH = 7.3
    calcium = 300

    Note I also added stabilizer when I started SLAM 4 days ago. FYI, my FC was about 5 this morning at 9:30 and is now a 3 after being in the sunshine all day. It is currently 5:30 and we have been out all day so that was the last time I added bleach. I added enough to bring it up to 10 this AM.

    Sand filter, plaster walls, approx. 15000 gallons.

    Its safe to swim with FC up to SLAM level and as long as you can see the bottom.

    As long as the FC is below shock and you can see the bottom of the deepest part of the pool it is safe to swim.

    I would go ahead and float CYA in a sock to get your CYA from 20 to 40.
