    How long after adding chemicals is it safe to swim?

    I'm just wondering if I need to add MA, Borax, Bleach, etc. How long should we wait to swim?

    I've been told that with MA it is ok to swim after 30 minutes. What about the others?


    TIA

    30 minutes sounds like a safe recommendation for bleach, too.

    We are talking maintenance levels and pumps running.
