Thread: Hey

  1. Back To Top    #1


    Just wanted to say hello to everyone and thanks for all the information. I've been watching the site for about a year, reading pool school and learning all I can. Just filled my pool yesterday and I have to admit BBB is the best.

    After filling I added enough cya in a sock to bring it up to 30 and enough bleach to bring FC to 6.

    Yesterday evening test results were:

    FC 6
    CC 0
    pH best guess 6.5 was too low for the test kit
    TA 80
    CH did not test
    CYA still in the sock

    This evenings test

    FC 6
    CC 0
    pH 6.8
    TA 80
    CH didn't test
    CYA 30

    Need to add some soda ash or borax to bring up pH and TA. The water is crystal 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.
