    Cya always clear in the bottle

    Question.......Even though CYA granules take a week or more to register in the testing, is it still effective while it dissolves? So, if I'm clearing a swamp, should I assume the CYA that was recently added is active or should I assume the CYA level before it was added when calculating the amount of bleach to shock with?

    Once it is dissolved, assume it is there and use that CYA to find shock value.

    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.

    Cool, thanks!

    It makes me wonder, though, why the test doesn't show it for a week or so even though it's there.
