Chlorinator after shocking

Hi there

After setting up and filling our above ground pool I shocked it but apparently not everything else was quite in balance and free chlorine was zero. I shocked it again after balancing everything else out and now free chlorine is 10.

I know I need to now wait for that to reduce below 5, but I am wondering when should I put the chlorinator with the tablets back in? Should I do it now or wait until the free chlorine is at the desired level?

Thanks!

Welcome to TFP!.

We don't do shock because it doesn't work. Please read ABCs of Pool Water Chemistry and ask any questions you may have. We have experts that volunteer to help. Also, unlike your pool store we don't sell anything. We use cheap generic chemicals not high $ pool store potions.

I hope this helps and hope to hear from you soon.
