We got a new liner (2 weeks ago) so basically it's a new pool. My question is do I have to slam it? I have been reading this site off and on for 3 days now and I'm sooooooo confused. The water is beautifully crystal clear, no algae at all, I shocked it with 24 ounces Hy Chlor shock once the first week and once the 2nd week, but now I want to go with bleach and baking soda and muriatic acid as my new way of treating the water.
The readings today are:
Do not have the DPD FAS in my kit but I ordered it yesterday, I have the Leslie 81-330, that was the only pool store open on Sunday.
I took the Pucks out of the feeder after reading what they do over time, and that seems to be when the FC went to zero the next day (today), yesterday my readings were FC 1.2 and TC 2.4 and TA was 90 and PH was 7.8.
Should I wait till I get the DPD FAS in the mail and then start the slamming or do I need to slam at all if I just add what the calculator said to add which was 191 ounces of bleach at 8.25% and 16 ounces muriatic acid.
