Is the pool full or empty? Depends how long they were in there. If it was just overnight, no big dal. If it was a week, I would shock the pool. Pool Masters.

How much shock n swim do you put for a 3800 gallons pool?

1/2 a bag will cover up to 5,000 gal & is still safe for a 3800 gal pool; use 1/2 a bag about every 4 to 6 days. Shock will clear the green but may not clear the cloudiness if you wait too long, but the water should still be safe to swim in; have your water tested by your pool professional at least once a week, it's usually free.

What does shocking a pool do?

By shocking, it means to put a small amount of chlorine into the pool water, just to kill harmful bacteria. In most cases, it's safe to swim about an hour after shocking. Super-chlorination, however, requires at least 12 hours to allow chlorine levels to drop. Otherwise, it would be exactly like swimming in a pool of Clorox, and your skin WILL burn. That's why some pools are open 6 days a week and close the 7th day.
