    Can I swim in between shocks?

    So, I've been shocking since Saturday. Last night it was holding at shock level for an hour or two. It only dropped 12ppm overnight.

    I will continue to shock. But the water is clear. Can we get a quick swim in this afternoon before I continue shocking if the FC is around 5-8ppm?

    With FC falling 12 overnight, no I wouldn't swim.

    No, that does not sound like clean water yet.
