New owner of a SWGgunite pool, 15K. The Jandy 1400 is currently not working correctly (getting error messages 172, 183, 184) and waiting for a technician to come by in the next day or so. In the meantime I've been SLAMing the pool because we had some algae when we moved in and just getting used to the TF testing.
My main question is regarding the CC. When using the TF100 test and I'm measuring for CC, it always turns "just a little" pink which easily clears with one drop of the 871, so I'm considering my CC less than 0.5. Today my pH was 7.5 and my FC was 16.5 (having SLAMed two days ago). My CYA is around 50-55.
I read in the "How to SLAM" article to keep adding chlorine up to every hour, but at least a couple times a day. I guess I'm just not sure what my end point should be. I only added one bolus of bleach based off the calculators. I think my CC is OK, but should I really be driving it to 0? My water is clear, which is obviously good. I haven't done an overnight loss test yet, so I bet that is my next move.
Any advice on CC, SLAMing, and what those error messages mean would be really helpful!
Thanks in advance
