Howdy tfp'rs I'm brand new to this site and have been attempting to soak up as much knowledge as I can (And I've learned a lot). Unfortunately I haven't been able to tackle this pool 100%.. On a good day the pool is like the cya test with the filter acting as the black dot.. In other words I can't see the filter on the bottom but I can see the bottom of the shallow end clear as day. there's also a slight film of what seems almost yellowish along the entire pool and there are large deposits along any angles (i.e. Where the shallow end starts declining) and after a thorough brushing it's just completely cloudy green. My tf-100 kit just came in today and I'm now confident enough to post a question lol. My results are as follows:
Fc: 3.5 ppm, Cc: 0, Ch: 250 ppm, Ta: 80 ppm and Cya has apparently dropped to 20 from two weeks ago (Pool store test) from 30.
Also Ph reads ~7.2-7.5
...so with this knowledge I suppose I'm just wondering if I do indeed need to perform the dreaded SLAM it or is it simply a matter of waiting until it clears completely? I've been making a solid effort of brushing daily and I'm running the pump 24/7 whilst back washing/rinsing every couple of days. All help is appreciated
