I posted up a while ago with some issues on rising PH and needing to SLAM. After getting my PH issues straightened out I needed to SLAM due to a high CC count. I was probably 95% through the slam process, but got called out of town on business and had to assume that my overnight test would be good. Apparently that was WRONG!
I came home to a clear pool, but a very strong ammonia smell and a FC of 1 and a CC of 3.5
So I started my SLAM again three days ago. After first dose of Chlorine per pool Math my FC dropped down to 3 and my CC was at 6. Since then I have been adding more bleach and checking every two hours up until I go to bed and brushing 3 times a day
This AM my numbers are as follows:
My question is during this entire process I can still smell chloramines. Is this normal? Do I possibly have an ammonia problem? Digging back through my winter testing records I noticed that my FC did hit zero (wife tested and didn't tell me, she just added more bleach) and my CYA dropped from 50 to 30.
