So my SLAM was a complete and total success! Here I am a week later still trying to get my FC level down! The water is crystal clear and I've turned my SWG down to 50%, decreased my pump run time to about 12 hours per day. My FC level is still 21! Amazing.
So, I'm considering starting my ascorbic acid treatment. I have nasty metal stains on the liner. I know this as I've tried ascorbic acid before and it clears them up...only to return in a week or so. That's before I found the experts at TFP!
I ended up buying 9 lbs of ascorbic acid from the Chemistry Store link I found here, so in theory I should have plenty for my pool. I've read and read again the post here on ascorbic acid treatment.
My issue is simply going to be getting the FC level down to a point where I don't need 50 lbs of ascorbic acid. I sure hate the thought of cleaning out the bleach section at WalMart again to get my FC back up, but so be it! I'm determined to get my liner back to the blue color it once was.
Any suggestions? I have some Chlorine neutralizer I bought at my local Leslie's. Short of dumping that in there, not sure how to get my FC level down quickly.
Also, I'm a little confused about what to add to the water when I'm starting my treatment, i.e. sequestering agent.
