I have been SLAMing my pool since May 22nd. I did have a two day period where my filter was off. I was waiting for a new clamp. To maintain the SLAM, I have had to add at least 2 gallons of bleach each day. Three of the days, I had to add 4 gallons. I seem to be losing about 5 ppm each day, but I've had three days where I lost 10 ppm. At one point, I thought I was actually done SLAMing (1.5ppm overnight loss). That must have been a fluke, and I'm glad that I continued SLAMing. Is there a reason that I'm losing so much chlorine? How long does a SLAM typically take? My water looks crystal clear, but I assume there is some underlying algae.
This is my current water chemistry: 45 CYA, 7.6 PH, 260 CH, 60 TA
I have a SWG, but I have it turned off for now.
