I asked this on another thread but thought it might be better to put out as a new one:
Background, I just started to SLAM a green pool that was high in CYA and Calcium until I changed out water. I am now at CYA=50 and SLAMing at FC=20. I have seen slight improvement since Friday evening when I started.
so next hurdle:
Going on vacation for a week on Friday. need advice on what to do before I leave. I don't think this problem will be tackled by Friday, and with the fact that I have to have it at SLAM levels until I get the water clear is not looking good for me.
I was thinking hitting at 25-40% higher than the SLAM FC level and then have a friend dump two gallons of liquid chlorine in the pool half way through my vacation.
I will not be able to have someone test and add chemicals for me! I will be lucky to get someone out to the house to dump 2 gals of chlorine.
