I'd wait at least 24-48 hrs, depending how much chlorine you added, if you super shocked the pool then wait 24hrs if you just added a small amount, it's now a big deal. Im a homeowner not a pool builder or cleaner. This is what we;ve done in the past.. you'd might want to call a pool supply store and ask this question just to make sure. You should wait 20 to 30 minutes for normal additions of chlorine or other chemicals. However you should read the manufacturers instructions ir directions with the regard to algaecides. If superchlorinating you obviously need to wait longer. You have to give the circulation system time to distribute any chemical additions to the pool such as chlorine of muriatic acid.

I'm not sure what you mean. If your qeustion is how long do you have to wait to swim after adding chlorine, it really depends. If you're adding chlorine to bring the level up to 2.0 or 3.0ppm, then wait minimum 1 hour before swimming, and be sure the filter is on. If you're shocking the pool and bringing the level up to 10-12ppm, you need to wait until the pool reaches a safe level as stated above.
