    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.

    Thanks for the nice comments. I took ideas from everyone here so I thought I would share the outcome. The only thing I might add is an outdoor shower. I still trying to figure out home to get hot water out there???

    Don't waste time and energy looking for a better value on test kits, the TF100 is the best deal around. I did the looking and spent the extra money, but you don't have to make the same mistake. Just go here: TFTestkits. I use Pool Calculator for min/max, and shocking chlorine levels.

    Re: All done...take a look

    You are one of the only people I have read mention and outdoor shower! I wanted to build an outdoor shower (we are staring out pool project this week) but I figured the cost of getting hot water to the yard, more plumbing directly tied into house etc etc so I didn't even really look into it but I LOVE outside showers!! Let me know if you ended up doing it and if you like it.
    Finished build 4/12/12 Central MD- IG Concrete 48x26 Lazy L
    35,000 gallons, 3.5'-8.5' with diving platform and sheer decent.

    Simply gorgeous! The only thing that could possibly make this pool beyond great would be a Orca Whale Pool Thermometer.
    ... Wait!
    What's that in the second picture in the corner of the steps?! An Orca Whale Pool Thermometer! Now the pool is truly perfection

    lol, seriously. It looks really nice. Good Job!

    You might be able to use a separate small water heater just for the shower instead of trying to use the existing water heater.

    Re: All done...take a look

    Beautiful pool and backyard area. Enjoy it now that it is done! About your outdoor shower, ours was built into the house when we built the house, but we did not add hot water to it, just ambient temp. I've considered adding one of the small solar heaters like they sell on Amazon since there's enough head to make it work. Same concept as our pool heater just smaller. May work for a shower, but it is probably best saved for its own thread. Once again, beautiful job!

    Beautiful backyard. Saved to my inspiration links file.

    I had this link saved from another tread about outdoor showers. It's self contained and uses a BBQ style propane tank.
