    Is water clarifier needed after SLAM?

    I just slammed my green pool the last couple nights and I woke up to clearness with no cloudyness from what I can see. Should I still use a water clarifier or just leave it as is? I'm just not sure if a clarifier should be used to catch whatever I can't see or if it's fine.

    Leave it alone. Clarifiers are a desperate measure used by desperate men.

    And you're not done with the SLAM until you've passed all three tests. Clear is only the first one. Second is the CC reading. Third is the overnight loss test. Until you've passed all three, keep the FC at SLAM level and the filter running and don't forget to brush.

    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!
