    swimming in FC 7

    I was just wondering if you can swim in a pool with the FC 7. I want to get into the pool this weekend. I had to turn off the SWG because the FC was at 7.5 at the beginning of the week and I kept checking FC. I checked the FC today and it only dropped to 7. Is it bad to swim in?

    The results of the full test I ran on Tuesday are:
    FC 7.5 (but checked today and its 7)
    CC 0
    TC 7.5 (7 today)
    pH 7.5
    T/A 100
    CH 220
    CYA 60
    Temp 76
    18' Willow round AG 52", 19" Sand filter 1 hp pump, Intex SWG 8110, Bought and install May 08
    New 12'x16' deck built March 09
    Poss thinking about solar panels next!

    With your CYA of 60 - it's fine 8) (I'd even wear my expensive - $10- new bathing suit in it and not worry about it bleaching :P ) Check the cya vs. cl chart in my sig - as long as you're not at shock level (or too far above), it's good to swim in
