My pool has turned green and seems to be suffering from a algae bloom. Tomorrow my Taylor K 2006 test kit arrives and I would like to begin the SLAM process. I am new to pool chemistry, so please excuse my ignorance.
I am wondering how much chlorine would you recommend to keep on hand for a 15,000 gallon pool with a CYA of 50? I am sure there is no exact answer to the question, but what would be the ball park amount of chlorine to have on hand for this process? I have two 2.5 gallon jugs which I will have both filled. If thats plenty, do I dump all 5 gallons, refill, then wait until it begins to go close to dropping below shock level, or should I take a slower approach, dumping a little, test then dump again?
Just trying to get my feelers on how this is implemented.
