    Some folks do, some don't add polyquat60. It is extra insurance. I don't, but my water freezes solid during the winter.

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.

    There were subsequent posts in this thread about the use of sequestrant at closing. Those posts turned into a hi-jack since OP never asked about them in the first place. Those posts have been moved to "Sequstrant or Not" in the "Agree to Disagree" forum.
