So I'm in the middle of SLAM'ing...FC target 13, CC usually between 0 and .5, and each morning, it is around 10.5-11 (so not losing a lot overnight). Is it still eating algae? Pool is cloudy, though water looks clear when I scoop it up. We're brushing the walls (pool is 9-10ft on deep end) and as much as we can around steps, returns,etc., but I'm not sure that we are effectively getting all the algae off. The deeper we go, the less leverage and force we're able to exert during brushing. It feels pretty ineffective by the time we are brushing near the floor. I've almost fallen in a couple of times. At what point do I have to get in the pool and scrub (at what FC level is it safe to?), and how do you do it in the deep end? Do you brush the floor as well? I see a thin layer of silt, and some metal staining at the bottom, but can't brush the floor very well. What effect will that have on banishing algae?
At what level of FC loss do you declare SLAM is done? I'm not sure at this point if I keep taking it to 13, or just let the filter uncloud the water.
I added DE to help with the filtering, but am not sure how much/often to keep adding. I'm backwashing at least once a day.
