    Opened the pool a few days ago, What levels should I do for SLAMing?

    Hello All,

    Pool was a swamp. Vacuumed as much junk off the bottom as I could and scrubbed. Next morning it was already blue instead of green. I had put about 5.5 or so gallons of chlorine in. This was Monday evening.

    Pool currently looks blue but cloudy. I'm wondering what I should get my levels to, to SLAM. In my notes from previous year I have written down 60 CYA is about 24 FC to shock, I just cant find the little graph I got that from.

    Here are my results, I'm going to run out there and put a little chlorine in and lower the PH. Wondering what I should do for CYA/FC after that. Going to go grab a bunch of salt so I can get the SWG going too. thanks for any suggestions

    FC - .5
    CC - .5-1
    PH - 8.2+
    Salt - 1960ppm
    TA - 40
    CH - 60
    CYA - 20

    Actually, I just retested FC/CC with a fresh sample and better lighting... It appears that

    FC - 0
    CC - 0

    I believe the testing chemicals i'm using are from last season (stored inside). So I'm not sure. I'll try to level a few things and retest in a little bit.

    Get the pH to 7.2-7.4. Is this the graph you were looking for? Pool School - Chlorine / CYA Chart

    Last year's chemicals should be fine if stored indoors.

    Yes thats it! thank you. I just put some chlorine and acid in so I'll retest in a little bit.

    Good deal. Don't go crazy with the chlorine until you get that pH down. Do you remember how to SLAM your pool? Pool School - SLAM - Shock Level And Maintain
