    No. The most recent thing I added was some stabilizer. I have some algicide but rarely use it.

    How about some bleach with scent or easy pour or splashless?

    I think it was an easy pour jug.

    Foaming is not uncommon when SLAMming. Follow the links in this thread and look at pictures. You'll find some others. Recovering my old inspirational links
    16K freeform gunite with spa; Pentair 4000 DE filter; Century Whisperflow 1 HP; Pentair Minimax heater.
    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
