    Poo-Poo Accident today

    Hello All,
    My toddler had an accident in the pool. #2 and it wasn't exactly solid- if you know what i mean. Any advise on how high to shock? My CYA is 35. According to Ben's Best Guess Chart and the TFP Chlorine/CYA Chart I should shock around 12 to 16. Do you think that is enough for poo poo?

    pH 7.8
    CYA 35ish

    Thank You,

    The recommended approach is everyone out of the pool, clean up whatever you can, and then shock level for an hour and a half minimum with no swimming. Overnight is better.
