I have had some MPV issues I just got fixed recently. My pool is very green (bright and milky), and I am brand new to the BBB & SLAM stuff. My signature has my pool details and I'll attach my test results (I am lacking a FAS_DPD test but have everything else test wise) I have the following supplies: New: Baking Soda, Liquid Chlorine, DE, Natural Chemistry Instant Pool Conditioner, Left over from using the pool stores recommendations: Muriatic Acid (Liquid) Leslie's Power Powder Plus Shock (Calcium Hypochlorite) , Leslie's 3 in Triclor Tabs (Trichloro-S-Triazinetrione),Natural Chemistry Pool Perfect + Phosfree. I plan to order online the Borax, but can not seem to locate it locally so far (checked Walmart and home-depot)., except Borax, which I can't find locally)
I know from other recommendation on this forum I need to bring my pH down to 7.2 before SLAM, and that at least while on a SLAM that my CYA is ok to be on the lower end. What I don't know is how it can effect the CH. I ran the test twice and still got an oddly low CH. Should I go ahead and lower pH and start slam, or raise CH before dealing with pH and SLAM? I just don't know where to start on this and I don't want to damage my pool.
