I have a mustard algae problem. Started the SLAM today. I already put 5 gallons of 8% bleach in and am about to add 3 more, based on the numbers below. I'm also going to turn off our solar heater, since I read here that algae doesn't grow as well in colder water (makes sense). My wife wants to know about swimming in it while I'm SLAMing. I just read where Butterfly posted that the FC should be under 10 before swimming, so I'm guessing that's a no swim whilst SLAM is in progress. Can someone confirm? Also, what about aeration while slamming? Should I leave the waterfall off or on? I searched the board and could not find the answer. Sorry if I missed it somewhere.
Current #'s below. I'll post more in a couple hours or if I have another question. THANK YOU for your help!! This is the greatest board I'm on. Most helpful!!
