I'm about to start the process of my first slam - pool was left alone for 4/5 days without chlorine and got a tiny hint of green in it. Everything level wise is spot on but it is staying cloudy every time I brush it back down (about a week now) - I typically only run my variable speed pump 10 hours a day and have had no issues all year (new house and first pool!). But I'm assuming this run time isn't helping filter our the remaining algae...it seems to clear up in 48 hours, then I have to brush/vaccum the debris which makes it a tiny bit cloudier. I've done it twice now and decided it's probably time for my first SLAM.
FC 10 (just added bleach this AM)
I think I get the gist of SLAM - my only question is the 24/7 runtime...should I bump up the RPM through the evening, or is around 1000RPM ok as long as the water is circulating? I'm kind of guessing higher RPM = more/faster clearing up...but maybe not? My pool holds chlorine really well...besides opening the pool I've never had to shock it by following the BBB method
Thanks all for any help!
