    1. Safe to swim for kids as is?
    2. Added Murieta acid (22oz), stabilizer (66oz) and bleach (112oz)
    3. Anything else I should be doing to speed this up?

    If the clarity is good enough to see the floor, let 'em swim.

    Toss some brushes in and devise a game to see who can brush the most underwater or something. If they feel any slimy spots, tell 'em to scrub it away. Whatever the cloudiness is, a bunch of kids will certainly get it stirred up for the filter to grab it.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    Can't see bottom yet, too cloudy. But I will stand over them like a hawk.

    With the above numbers, does anything seem at a dangerous level? Nothing jumped out to me, but I don't want to risk hurting the kids skin/hair.

    We generally say it is safe to swim when:
    PH is 7.2 to 7.8
    Chlorine is above the minimum level for your CYA
    Chlorine is below shock level for your CYA
    Water is clear
