    CC should I slam?

    Hey everyone. I need some advice. My CC level is 1. Do I need to slam the pool?
    Thanks in advance for the advice!

    Can you post all of your readings?

    Have you done an overnight chlorine loss test?

    What is your water quality? Clarity etc.?

    I would suggest raising the fc to about 9 for a day to see if the problem resolves. Also, an overnight chlorine loss test would be helpful.

    If the cc remains or increases, or you don't pass the overnight chlorine loss test, a full Slam would probably be in order.

    Note that this is assuming that the water is clean and clear with no algae. If the water quality is not very good, then a Slam is probably indicated.

    In any case, I would suggest maintaining a higher fc level in general to help avoid problems.

    Once you find out the results of your oclt and you current cc level, and if you don't need to SLAM, you might consider getting your cya up to the recommended 70-80 depending on how much sun you get.
