    Thank you TFP. First SLAM going smoothly.

    It happened. We went on vacation for a week so I put a floater with a puck in it... came home to find an algae bloom... bummer. (Maybe I closed it too much or the puck is old and less Chlorine or something) Regardless, I started the SLAM according to the directions. Crystal clear water again less than two days later and the chlorine use has really dropped off so hoping for a positive overnight test tonight to hopefully go back to normal. Next time I better just teach a friend to measure and pour each day for me.

    Anyway... so glad I found this resource. The pool is so much better than what I started with last year when we bought the house and me a newbie to pool ownership. We love our pool! And TFP makes it easy!

    Good to hear that you were able to hit it right away and get back on track quickly. So much easier when you understand it and have effective methods to use.

    That is awesome to hear! Just so you know the pucks do not go bad like liquid chlorine does but they do add less FC and take some time to do it.
