    Slam/ cleaning pool

    The floor of my pool looks dirty but it's not dirt- it's like an algea that poofs up when disturbed. I added bleach but I'm not familiar with slamming pool. Here are my numbers- please advise on what tondo next to clear it up.
    Fc: 9
    ph: 8
    cya: 80
    Intex 22'x52" above ground pool with cartridge filter and Intex SWG

    During normal maintenance if is important to maintain PH between 7.2 and 7.8. Here are the Recommended Levels for your pool.

    To verify if you have algae you can raise FC above 10, turn off your swg and Perform the Overnight FC Loss Test (OCLT).

    If it doesn't pass the OCLT then here is the process to SLAM - Shock Level And Maintain your pool.
