Last week I started the SLAM process as my pool was green upon returning from vacation. I'm making notable progress and seeing clearer water every day. This entire season I have been fighting a clarity issue. I was not able to get the water clear, its been cloudy since I opened. I think my winter cover leaked as I was pulling up large amounts of leaves early on in the season. My question is, could the cloudy water be due to algae and should I keep SLAMming until I get clear water before doing the OCLT test? What test results should I post here to help answer that question. I'm not sure what tests are reliable during the SLAM process.
