    Home from vacation results..?

    After getting home from vacation with SWG and pump on timer:

    FC: 14.5
    CC: 0
    pH: 7.8
    CYA: 60
    TA: 60

    Before we left:

    FC: 6
    pH: 7.4

    Should I bother adding acid or is the high pH a side effect of the higher chlorine? I'm assuming it's safe for the kids to swim since I'm below shock level.

    Looks like the kids won't need a bath tonight!

    Don't adjust ph until you measure it when the FC is below 10 ppm, it is probably reading high right now.

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.

    Just dial the SWG back and check the pH when the FC gets below 10 ... enjoy!

    Looking pretty good. I bet that water is clear. Reduce runtime or percentage on SWG. Sounds like it was set a little high before vacation. Wait to test pH after FC comes down.
