Just finished my first SLAM 5 days ago. Did some testing and here are the results (post-SLAM pH was measured after FC dropped below 10ppm). I have a SWG.
Pre-SLAM...CYA 80 pH 7.2 TA ? (added MA to lower pH from 7.8 to 7.2 to prepare for SLAM)
After.........CYA 50 pH 7.2 TA 90
1. Why would my CYA drop so much during the SLAM? What should I do, if anything?
2. Curious why pH remained low (it measured 7.3 today so maybe trying to come back)
3. How does the slightly high TA number factor into the other 2 items?
