    First post and installing first pool

    Hello,
    I'm excited to find this site. I started today clearing a site for a 21 foot above ground pool for my kids. This has not been the funnest part if the project. Going to start leveling it in a day or so..by hand! I'm 6 inches off at the highest point from the lowest.
    looks like this site will be a great place to spend some time searching, and teach me some of the basics. Great site!

    Welcome to TFP.

    The digging and leveling is never the fun part. Feel free to ask any questions you may have.

    You can stop SLAMing your pool when you pass the OCLT (You lose 1ppm or less FC overnight, & You have .5ppm CC's or less) & your water is clear.

    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.
