    thanks to all

    just closed the pool for the 32nd year, 1st full year of bbb. its the first year i can say have really enjoyed having a pool, it was not down one time for algae, shocking or any other reason,even the closing went easier than it usally does. thanks for all the advise and help. I'll keep on reading all the posts this winter and be sure I'll be back on here next spring. Thanks

    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.

    Just curious, why are you closing so early?

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.

    Indiana has had it's share of early cool nights and rain showers the last couple of weeks that have really brought the water temps down.

    We are managing to keep ours up a bit with our solar heat during the afternoon sun, but without it we would be considering closing early too. Hoping to get a couple of more swims before the season is really over. I think with the extreme heat and dryness this summer... it really feels cold all of the sudden.

    I guess we aren't as brave as you are in Minnesota
