    Green pool waiting for new SWG

    So come to find out our SWG motor went on the fritz. We are getting a new one but could be a few days and right now my pool is cloudy and turning green. What can I do to get that taken care of in the mean time? Thanks!

    Just treat your pool like a non-SWG pool and "SLAM" (link below). Best to post a full set of test results from your TF-100 or Taylor K-206C. Regular bleach will be your primary sanitizer while you SLAM. During a SLAM, we typically don't use a SWG anyways, so just do the SLAM until you pass all 3 SLAM criteria. Later when you replace your SWG you can adjust chemicals levels based on a SWG pool.

    Thank you for your help! I started SLAM yesterday and the pool is already looking way clearer!

    Wonderful! Now just make sure to follow-through with the SLAM until you pass all 3 criteria. Best of luck!
