    Green pool need help with SLAM

    So, our pool has a funky smell and has a green tint.

    PH 8.2
    CH 0
    CC 0
    TA 80
    CA 250
    CYA 25
    Temp 75
    Salt ? Easy touch remote and main box reads 0 ppm with COM LINK ERROR. Salt cell is all green lights.

    We've only had to SLAM our pool once so I cant remember if I should fix the PH, CYA or CH first.

    I would lower pH right away to 7.2. Also get a water sample and verify CYA one more time. If you are sure it's below 30, add just a little required stabilizer to ensure you are at 30, then increase FC to 12. Sun's getting hotter and you'll need that CYA protection. Just leave the SWG off for now as to not mess with your FC SLAM calculations, and you can fix it later. Regular HEB (Bravo) or Wal-Mart (Great Value) bleach will serve you well for the SLAM.

    Thanks! I'll go buy some bleach, CYA and acid.

    And I'll buy a ticket on Southwest to jump in that pool! Very nice!

    Pat! I am right beside you as we cannon ball in! That is a NICE looking set up! AND with her name I bet she has a cute kid or two to throw in the pool!

    Re: Green pool need help with SLAM

    Thank you Pat and Kim! I don't think y'all would want to swim in this green mess but it is already starting to look better. I'll brush it after work and add more bleach!

    Notice the supply of bleach on the outdoor kitchen counter. We've already gone through 6 bottles

    Looking so much better! Hoping to pass the OCLT tonight and then we will add CYA to get back to SWG appropriate levels and turn the SWG back on!

    Definitely looking better. Just make sure all 3 SLAM criteria are passed before you back-off of the bleach and lower the FC. Your pool is responding nicely to the treatment.
