    Started SLAM on Sunday, still going, now leaving town Saturday, what to do?

    Started SLAM Sunday as we were losing Chlorine daily, and SWG couldn't keep up.

    Can't pass OCLT, but water is very clear. Losing 2-3 ppm nightly, but 0 CC
    Had bad rain last night added 2" of rain water to the pool. Thus diluting what I had already in there.
    Topped off this am, reading was 28, added to get back to 31
    CYA = 80, so I'm keeping FC above 31

    I'll be home today, so I can monitor and keep FC level intact, Mn - THursday no one was home during day, and we'd lose 10-12 ppm during the day. Its been very sunny and warm here too.

    What do I do before leaving town? Boost FC way up? I've been using Kreepy Krawly every night for 8 hours, pump has been on non-stop.

    Thanks for the help.

    Bump new issue

    Didn't get an answer to my question, so I bumped FC to 45 for weekend, and left town

    Came home to FC of 22.5 and CC of 6.
    CYA = 80, and I see some little bugs floating on surface, so we will have to use the net to scoop those out.

    We've never had a cc reading before, and now its 6

    Evidently our going high killed off something right?

    Am going back to SLAM level of 31, and brushing again.

    Anything else to do?
