I have an algae problem and a party in one week. I just discovered this forum and Pool School so I'm trying to get up to speed very rapidly. I am planning to begin Slamming my pool this afternoon and my question is this:
CYA is currently below recommended level. Should I leave it there for Slamming purposes (from what I've read on Pool School it will require less chlorine) or adjust it to recommended level prior to beginning Slam?
My TF100 kit arrives today so the levels I have to share are from two sources, Aquachek and a Swimline Hydrotools test kit.
Aquachek (readings as best I can tell)
Drops test kit
These tests were performed this morning. I added 10 lbs Sodium Bicarbonate to boost TA to recommended level.
27,000 gal is an estimate. I'll be measuring for accuracy this afternoon.
