    I'm ALMOST there........

    I'm almost to a sparkly pool

    It usually doesn't take me this long to get sparkly but we left the pool cover off during the winter and have had to do SO much more
    work this year because of it. I won't make that mistake again. Also this year we've had 2 big hail storms that knocked loads of **** into the pool (and dented my car) and we've had temps over 100 most days since June 15th.

    My numbers
    pH- 8.2 (because of chlorine)
    TA- 110
    CYA- 40

    I am still losing chlorine overnight, usually from 15 down to 11 or so. I plan to keep FC at 15 just a little longer. Anything else I should be doing or checking right now?? The water is blue, I can see the bottom, it's just a little cloudy. Oh, the sand is new (and I did backwash before I put it in filter mode, our cleaner is picking up a little sand, not much).

    Thanks and have a great 4th

    Glad you are almost there

    My only suggestion would be to recheck your pH when the FC drops below 10.

    You're done SLAMing when:
    1)You lose 1ppm or less FC overnight, & 2)You have .5ppm CC's or less, & 3)your water is clear.
