I am sure that this question has been asked before but with the holiday weekend in full swing I wanted to make sure as I am entertaining guests this afternoon
:
What are the safe levels of FC to swim? If not a safety issue....what would be okay for swimmer comfort without bleaching a suit.

Test Results:

FC 9.5
pH 7.6
CC 0
Alk 130
CYA 60

Everything there looks good. Get wet !
You can swim in FC levels up to SLAM level as long as you can see the bottom of the pool. SLAM level for your CYA level of 60 is 24. 😎

Jumped on in the pool. Everything seems fine except the slimy feeling of the water on my skin. Could it be the sunscreen, high TA? any thoughts?

Could be the sunscreen. Nothing in your test results points to anything. I have never heard of high TA causing a slimy feeling on the skin. 😎
