    Help please!!!!

    I was trying to SLAM my pool (I needed to be at a 16) and I was supposed to put 40 oz or bleach--- some how some way (don't ask) I put 82 oz I. Ugh!!!!!!!

    Waited two hours and my fc is 25, cya is 40. What do I do? Having pool party on Saturday will I be ok? I can't believe I did this. I plan to keep the pump running but what now?

    It'll be fine. I bet by morning you'll be at SLAM levels.

    Just curious, why were going to SLAM your pool? Do you see evidence of algae? High CC or failed Overnight Chlorine Loss Test?

    I failed the Overnight test (barely, I think I lost 1.5) but I was having a pool party, so rather be safe than sorry and have a green pool
