    How do my numbers look?

    I had CYA issues but I think I'm back under control. I just wanted to check to make sure all looks good.

    FC 3.5
    CC 0
    pH 7.6
    TA 90
    CH 130
    CYA 40

    I've had 3 pucks in floater for the past week to try to increase CYA from 30. I haven't added any bleach until today when it dropped to 3.5. Floater is now empty. I added 9 cups of bleach to get to target level of 7. Pool is in full sun so I've been trying to keep FC on the higher side of range. I was previously losing about 3ppm a day. Should I continue increasing CYA to 50 because of full sun, no trees, no shade until almost 7:30pm?

    Looks good to me.

    You can increase your CYA if you want to or you can stop where you are. I would probably stop there and add CYA later if needed. It's easier to add some than to remove some.

    Numbers look good

    All day full sun? If it was my pool, I'd increase CYA to 50-ish.

    With a sand filter, you will be backwashing some out anyway.

    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.
