We are newbies - - just now trying the SLAM method - my husband wanted to trust the pool store and now I have convinced him to go this route (after finding a source for 10% bleach - he was tired of all the bleach lugging and we had bought out our local walmart!)
The pool was cloudy - put in pool store shock (di-chlor) - got clearer, got couldy again - husband put in Ca Hypo - now starting the SLAM
Today at 3:30 pm
according to the pool math - we needed and added 4.5 gallons of 10% bleach. . .
at 5:30 pm
- adding 1 gallon 10% chlorine!
I am concerned that we might be dealing with mustard algae. . . once we had two spots of some slimy (like hair gel) - dark tan to burnt orange looking stuff on the wall at the level of the water line. . .
--> I want to targe a high enough FC - do you all think that was mustard algae or just ??
Thanks -in advance (love this site!! - hoping to make a convert out of my husband )
