    SLAM results - OCLT results -- what's next.

    Last night's tests results:

    CL 21.0
    CC .5
    pH 7.5
    TA 150
    CH 50
    CYA 60

    This morning's test results:
    CL 21.5
    CC .5
    ph 8.2
    TA 150
    CH 40
    CYA 55


    What's next? Pool water is crystal clear but there is sand in the bottom of the pool that I can't seem to get out.

    Not sure how you went up over night.... I'd probably repeat the OCLT again tonight to be sure.

    Who knows, maybe testing error. It's one drop. 😎

    Sand in the pool means a bad spider gasket, broken standpipe, broken laterals, or some combination of the three. The only way to diagnose it is to start taking it apart.

    Um....wow. If you have sand in your pool without a sand filter, I'm not sure what to suggest. Exorcist?

    Your CC's are 0.5. Are you using the 25mL water sample to get 0.2ppm/drop ?

    With CC still at 0.5ppm I'd keep up the SLAM. Seem like you're still fighting something. Also that may not be sand...perhaps mustard algae?

    I have a DE filter and sand in my pool from the steps because I was a dummy and filled them with sand.
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!
