    I don't think that is gloating. I think it is showing off what happens when you follow the best method of pool care!

    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.

    I'll take the contrary view.

    For an extra 80 dollars, you could have gotten a Deluxe Startup Kit at a major national pool retailer. I'll just bet your phosphates are high.


    16K freeform gunite with spa; Pentair 4000 DE filter; Century Whisperflow 1 HP; Pentair Minimax heater.
    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
