Can anyone tell me how long you have to wait before swimming after bringing your pool up to “shock level” (if any time is even necessary at all)? Thanks!

It is my understanding that you can swim as soon as it drops below your "shock" level of chlorine.

So would these be reasonable steps to take for shocking your pool:

Shock this evening
Turn SWG off.
Run filter overnight.
Swimming in the morning would be safe?

Thanks
