    Hi from Bartlesville, OK

    Hi everyone. I'm new to the forum. We have had one of those intex 12'x32' floating ring type pool last summer, but if all goes to plan this spring we will be getting a 18'x48' untra intex above ground pool. I have been doing a lot of reading on this forum. I'm sure I will have lots of silly question, so I hope you all won't mind too much
    I'm glad to be on here
    Thanks
    Mike

    Hi Mike and welcome to the forum

    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.
