    New pool owner getting ready to SLAM

    Between rain and neglect, my chlorine is down to zero. Here are my current test results:

    FC 0
    CC 0
    TC 0
    CH 275
    TA 198
    CYA 50
    PH 7.9? I'm not very confident reading that test.

    Am I at the point where I need to do something about the TA or PH before I SLAM? I've been using 3 in 1 pucks and I'm ready to make the switch. I want sparkling water that doesn't smell! So glad I found this forum. Everytime I went to the pool store they would shoe me out with another 15lbs of Alkalinity Up.

    Just take your PH down to 7.2 and then you can start he SLAM. All the pre-reqs are on the Pool School - SLAM - Shock Level And Maintain page.
