In brief: After six months

Please do not over chlorinate a pool if yours.
Public pools by necessity are highly chlorinated. Some people get a rash by being exposed to this cleaner. Don't over do it, and make sure the child is slathered with water-proof ( actually, will last longer in water, only) spf 30 sunscreen a hat helps chidren from the light reflected from water.
