I've been SLAMing for almost two weeks - brushing, filter has been running 24x7 for 2 weeks, and for the past couple nights, there has been no FC loss overnight, and CC is between 0 and .5 consistently. There's loss during the day as it's been sunny, and I've brought it up to SLAM levels again. The water is actually pretty clear (I can see a quarter at the bottom of the deep end), but I can see sediment settled to the bottom. When I brush or use the creepy crawly vacuum, it stirs everything up and gets cloudy, but it doesn't seem to be filtering the rest of this stuff well.
I'm thinking I should let FC fall, and use about 5 oz of clarifier (28k gallons pool), to help my sand filter out. I've used DE, and it's helped some, but not as much as I'd like.
My daughter's graduation party is on Saturday - it's slated to be 99 degrees here in Portland, OR. I hope they are wrong, but just in case, it would be nice to have the pool looking spiffy. Thoughts and suggestions? Warnings?
