So I've been doing great for good 2 months or so since my last bout with algae and SLAMing. Keeping the FC levels right around 5-6ppm consistently. All before this last weekend. Quite a bit of pool use with quite a few adult and kids. I test on Sunday and get 1ppm. So I shock with 12% bleach and set SWG on 12 hour boost. Next day I check and I'm still at 1ppm, however CC is reading consistently at 0. So I'm thinking maybe I'm low on salt again, so add salt SWG on 100, test, FC as at 1.5ppm, CC still 0. And I also notice a lot of particles in the water otherwise water is fine. So I shock with 3 gallons of 12% bleach again, test in the evening, FC 5ppm, CC 0. So I figure I do an OCLT just to be sure, turned off SWG, and in the morning (today) sure enough down to 3ppm, CC remains at 0. Pool is covered all day, just got home measured FC down to 2.5ppm, CC =0. I and I definitely still see particles in the water, though the water is chill crystal clear.
So what really throws me off here is that my CC is staying at 0... My pervious bouts with algae was always high CC. But I suppose it doesn't matter since I'm loosing chlorine at the rate I shouldn't.. And what's the deal with the particles?
I'm planning to SLAM tomorrow, but wanted to double check with you guys first.
Everything is is norm
