This is a quote from a different thread, entitled "multiple pool problems" and was started by Rocky - sorry, don't really get it yet as to when to start a new question or dive in the middle of an on-going discussion. My question is, it appears that the answer that kids should not swim yet is based on CC being .5. The guy's description of his pool includes greenish water and green sediment, so maybe that is the basis of saying don't swim (I know I wouldn't). But based on the way FPM's answer was drafted, I need to ask if having .5 CC means DO NOT SWIM?? I had thought .5 or less was okay.Originally Posted by frustratedpoolmom
I know my pool is .5 (two different tests two or three days apart). I've never put anything in my pool other than liquid bleach and dichlor; the water is clear; and there is minimal sediment/organic type stuff in it as I skim it daily with a net and use an Aqua Broom almost daily. I have been allowing my kids to swim. My most recent tests are:
FC 5.5 (using TF kit)
pH 7.5 (using hth 6-way kit)
CYA between 30 and 40 (haven't tested for one week and in meantime added one ounce dichlor)(using hth 6-way kit)
CC .5 (using TF kit)
Do I need to worry about the .5 CC? Can I let my kids continue to swim with these numbers?
Thanks in advance for any input.
