My CYA levels were around 4/500 after years of bad managing the chemistry. I just drained about 95% of my pool (just enough to keep the pumps going), and is currently filling back up.
Can someone give a brief summary on how to SLAM? I read the guide here, but just wanted to confirm I'm doing things right after draining so much.
-Approx how much bleach or chlorine to buy for a 8000 Gallon Hot tub?
-Getting the PH to 7-8 is KEY before SLAMMING, correct? (leave all others alone)
-After getting the PH up, the only chemical I should be using is bleach/chlorine right? (turn off the bromine feeders currently set at 1)
Once my chlorine levels stabilize, then I can do everything else to have a good balance, right?
-Whats the recommended way to lower my extremely high chlorine after it stabilizes (aka: I can stop the SLAM method; chlorine doesnt drop anymore)
Thanks guys! looking forward to a blue tub again after so long of green tubs
