    Regular pool maintenance

    Hi all,
    Now that my pool is starting to get blue and the end is in sight, I am wondering about what I can expect when I am in maintenance mode.

    What needs to be done daily and/or weekly?

    Once SLAM is over, my FC will be over 25. Do I just wait until it gets to 7 or 8? Do we test everyday?

    I will keep pool going through the winter. Is winter routine different than summer routine?

    Please advise.
    Thanks!

    Here are a couple good TFP pages to refer to:
    Pool School - Routine Pump/Filter Maintenance
    Pool School - Basic Pool Care Schedule
    After the SLAM, the FC will drop on its own to your recommended (target) rate. Test FC everyday.

    Hope this helps. Great to hear your water is changing for the better.

    Thanks for the links. I knew there should be something like that around, but I couldn't find it.
