    I'm Done SLAMing!!!

    Thanks to all- I watched it work....I'm a believer! All three tests passes- CC is 0ppm, overnight test resulted in virtually no loss in FC (less than .5ppm) and the water is crystal clear.

    I had to jack my FC level up pretty high to match my CYA. My CYA hit 90 yesterday so I brought up my FC to 35. It is currently 34.5. As I let it drift down, what is an acceptable level to swim at? My kids are going nuts.

    I'm planning on visiting the pool calculator and draining the necessary water in my pool to get the CYA to an optimum range.

    I'm going to rinse my filter cartridge again today (It was pretty green yesterday). I'm assuming it's okay to throw the pump back on it's normal timer?

    Any other post-SLAMing necessities or things to watch for?

    Thanks again for all the help-

    You can swim up to SLAM level FC based on CYA. Just shower & rinse suits after.

    With CYA of 90 keep the FC between 7 and 12, and never below 7.

    It's okay to back off the pump run time, but continue to monitor to insure it is keeping the pool clear.

    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.
