    That's about 1.5 ppm FC in your pool.

    It would take about 1 gallon + 1 quart to replace 3 ppm FC.

    And yes, 50 CYA should help especially if you have lots of sun on your pool.

    Where are you located....city/state?

    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.
