Hi, Iím starting toSLAM my pool for the first time as helpfully recommended by a member here. (CC climbed toover 2ppm in the week after opening my pool).I think my TFT100 test kit will arrive either today or tomorrow.
Iíve read pool school and numerous recent posts on SLAMingbut I have a few questions.
-Iíve seen cases herewhere people have had to maintain shock level for up to a month.How long does it take before the liner startsto fade because of the higher levels of FC?
-Should I spread all that Clorox throughout the deep end orshould I just pour it in front of the two jets in the deep end? (thatís what Idid yesterday, but I started to think that even though there are jets there,that after many days /years of doing that, the liner there might age/fade morequickly?
-Is it Ok to use my Tigershark for the daily vacuum and to brushthe walls? I clean the Tigershark filterin between with water.
-Unlike most of my neighbors, I was lucky not to have agreen pea soup pool when our winter safety cover was removed (warmer winterthan typical in upstate NY). Our water looks clear. However Idid notice some golden/brown crust on the liner along the water line when we first opened (I brushed the liner so it's not visible anymore).Iím wondering if thatís the mustard algae Iíveread about?Is there any downside tofollowing the pool school protocol for mustard algae just to be safe even if Iímnot sure if thatís what it was?
Thanks so much! Wish me luck : )
