    Post-SLAM CC and pH Issues

    I have recently SLAMmed my pool and am now letting the FC levels drop, but I seem to have issues with CC and high pH. Here are today's test results:

    FC 17
    CC 0.5
    pH 8.0
    TA 100
    CH 250
    CYA 60
    Temp 55F

    Do I need to address the CC and pH levels, or will they equilibrate as FC drifts down?

    A CC of 0.5ppm can be treated as zero ... nothing to worry about.

    The pH test reads artificially high when the FC > 10ppm. After the FC drops below 10ppm, then check the pH and adjust.
