    SLAM in progress - am I on the right track?????

    Start SLAM on July 25 - water was mostly clear, slight green algae on pool ladder and vinyl felt little "fuzzy" - tried battling stains w/AA but pool has had a <20 cya. Followed TFP advice (earlier thread that I cannot find to contine posting) - got CYA to 40 and began SLAM. Newbie so wanted to see if I appear to be on the correct track so far. Temps have been low 90s and pretty sunny. Have left SWG off and filter running 24/7. Water is sparkling clear.

    7/25 Readings before SLAM

    FC 6
    CC .5
    CYA 40

    Added LC and somehow my FC went to 21 (must have made a serious error in calculation - thou I reimputed my #'s and got the same result again)

    7/25 7:00 p.m. readings:

    FC 21
    CC .5


    7/26 7:00 a.m. readings

    FC 15.5
    CC .5

    added 13 oz lc

    7/26 2 p.m. readings:

    FC 12.5
    CC <.5

    added lc


    7/26 4:00 p.m. readings

    FC 16.5

    7/26 6:45 p.m. readings

    FC 14.

    added 54 oz LC

    7/26 8:30 p.m. readings

    FC 16
    CC .5

    Did not pass OCLT

    7/27 7:00 a.m. test

    FC 14.5
    CC .5

    added 40 oz LC

    7/27 10:30 a.m.

    FC 16.5

    7/27 3:00 p.m.

    FC 12

    added 108 oz LC


    Except for the initial overdose of LC - do these numbers seem reasonable for a SLAM situation? Much thanks for any guidance/suggestions!

    Looks like you are following the process well

    Very close to an OCLT pass last night. How does the water look now?

    Yea! Water looks very clear! Do have another question - as soon as I pass OCLT, I'll need to wait a few days for accurate CYA so in the meantime, how low do I let the FC drift down to?

    You can test the CYA anytime you want. It should not have changed from before the SLAM.
