I read that it is okay to swim up to shock level with clear water. So with having milky water does that nix...

    what to do -shocking with high TA

    I have been shocking for about two weeks (1 week of shocking using the TF-100). Reason for shocking is my pool water is milky. I still have not passed my OCLT as of yet. My numbers are FC 30 CC .5 CH 220 Ph 7.8 CYA 60 ( I had added to get my CYA to 70 (will be a week tomorrow when I added it) -...
