    Pool Party

    What's the general rule, keep chlorine at current level then elevate some after party, elevate some before party, or business as usual regarding chlorine level?

    Elevate before party.

    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.

    Currently keep between 4-8 based on CYA of about 50. What should I elevate it to?

    I suggest around 10 to 12. I would also test FC/CC & pH after the party

    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: Pool Party

    I recently had a party in pretty demanding conditions. 100 degree heat, full sun, 11 kids aged 7-13.

    30 minutes before the party, I brought FC to 12 (normally 9), and lowered pH from 7.5 to 7.2

    At 2pm, After the party, I brought FC back up to 12, checked pH (it was 7.3), checked CC (.5), left the pump running remainder of the day, and all night.

    Next morning, FC was 9, pH still 7.3 water was crystal clear, and I went swimming

    Remember, the Shock Process should be followed until : 1. CC is less than 0.5 ppm, 2. An OCLT shows a loss of 1.0 ppm or less and, 3. The water is crystal clear.
