Just a few days ago I noticed a thin layer of green on the bottom of the pool, and commenced a SLAM. This is my first SLAM attempt since joining the site, so I want to make sure I'm on the right track:
FC= 17 ppm
CC= 0 ppm
CYA= 40 ppm
Alkalinity= 80 ppm
I started the SLAM two days ago, yet each morning since, when brushing the bottom and sides of the pool, I still see the same thin green layer. The deep end is still pretty cloudy; if there has been any improvement at all, I would say it's minimal. Why are my CC's 0? I thought that CC was an indication that you are actively killing off algae, yet both days since I started the SLAM, it has been 0. Am I being impatient, and this process takes several days? I guess I just thought that with 17 ppm of FC, the effects would be seen rather quickly.
