    After the SLAM question

    I recently finished my slam passing OCLT, water looks great, and combined chlorine of zero. My CYA is a 70 so my SLAM level for full chlorine was 28. Currently I am waiting on my chlorine to fall to get an accurate PH and TA reading. Am I correct in saying that those won't be accurate until I get my FC below a 10? Right now I am at a reading of 16 FC. I feel like I have read that somewhere but not sure where on here. Thanks so much!

    I don't know about the TA but the pH will not be accurate above 10ppm FC.

    I would test TA about the 10 ppm threshold and below just for informational purposes only. Now that you have completed the SLAM, please maintain the appropriate FC levels and brush pool often to keep everything moving.

    TA test is unaffected by higher FC....test anytime. pH test needs FC to be 10 ppm or below to be accurate.
