    Don't bother to test CYA if you have a number from before addition. Newest won't show on test for a week or more. FC is vital. Is salt level correct?

    Well, to me it looks like your pool is going from blue-ish to green-ish.

    With the TF100 kit, what is the CC level?

    How much CYA have you added to pool?

    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.

    Re: whats this look like to you

    2 lbs would raise your CYA by 22 and if you could see the black dot with the tube full, then assume it was about 20, so now it's about 40 and you need to add enough chlorine to bring the FC to at least 5 ppm.

    Once you've done that use your TF-100 to run the FC & CC test and I'd even go ahead and run an OCLT tonight.

    Re: whats this look like to you

    ok so check my FC when i get home
    use the pool calculator to see see what i need to add to bring FC up to 5
    it says if my fc is 1, to bring it to 5, i need 68oz of bleech, so about 1/2 gallon
    correct?
    now unfortunately i am having people over tomorrow, if i put the bleech in tonight, is it fine for everyone to swim tomorrow?


    once it is at 5, then check DV and CC again?

    From 1 to 5, I get 91 oz of 6% bleach. Let's recheck that.
    So, I'd just add a small jug, 96oz, if indeed you have 1 and going to 5.

    Well, we'd like to see the FC/CC #'s first.


    once it is at 5, then check DV and CC again?
    Yes, about 45 mins or so after adding the bleach, retest and post FC/CC results.

    Did you make sure you have 11,000 gallons as the pool size and 6% as the bleach strength? I get the same thing Butterfly gets.
