    Hi, welcome to TFP! The best natural way to cool the pool is to use fountain or make a pool cooler out of PVC. Here are a few examples: my-version-of-a-pool-cooler-operating-off-a-return-t48856.html ; pool-cooler-t63939.html ; a-cheap-pool-cooler-for-the-end-of-summer-t2501.html

    Anything that will shoot a fine spray of water up in the air will cool the pool by evaporation. Let it run until you get the pool as cool as you want.

    You might also consider shade sails:

    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.

    Welcome to tfp, nehasns

    The methods posted above work well. If you want to "extend" your season (where do you live?) and also want to cool in the hot months, solar heating is great for both. To cool with solar heating, you run the panels at night instead of the day.

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.
