As long as it has circulated over night and your levels are still fine in the morning, you will be fine for swimming. It is VERY strong stuff, you are wise to be cautious.

Thank you for the reply - woke up this morning to a cloudy pool again
T/A went from 80 to 0 and PH from 7.9 to 7.5 as far as I can tell
My pool store is closed today so I will dump some baking soda in to try and lift the TA it will raise the PH but I have 3.5 LB of PH- I can drop in tonight. I'll test again tomorrow

You need to get & use BLEACHCALC so you don't overdose again.
