    You try to manually mix the water as much as you can would be my guess.

    You still dose with chlorine and Brush, brush, brush and swim, swim, swim...that second part is pretty fun!

The SLAM process is not finished until: 1. CC < 0.5 ppm, 2. An OCLT < 1.0 ppm and, 3. The water is crystal clear.

    You just discovered a great new reason (excuse) to buy a small portable generator. It's the one I used!

    Our power is out as well and won't be restored until Friday midnight. I need the generator to keep the freezers and fridge running. Each appliance gets 8 hours in rotation. Can't spare the genny for the pool pump.

    I add bleach and mix it in with the WallWhale brush.
