    Post SLAM Question

    Hello,

    I just finished the SLAM procedures and wanted to throw my pool cover on that's been sitting on a reel with a plastic cover over it all winter (Vegas winter). Is this a bad idea? Don't want to do the SLAM procedures again.

    Thanks in advance!

    No, put it on if you like. Just keep up with your chemistry from here out and you'll be fine. No worries at all with that.

    Now that I'm done with SLAM procedures can an I adjust Ph or do I have to wait until chlorine levels come down to normal levels?

    Wait until FC is below 10, then adjust pH.

    Re: Post SLAM Question

    I have 2 questions regarding testing ...

    1. When filling up the testing container is the water supposed to be on the line, just above it or just below it?
    2. When adding daily chlorine we want to add just enough to be at our target by the end of the next day correct?

    1) The surface of the water will be curved. That curve is called a meniscus. The bottom of the meniscus should be at the line.

    2) Almost. You want to raise the FC level to whatever level keeps you at or preferably just a little above the minimum FC level 24 hours later. The target number we give is a guess at what that level will be. But every pool is a little different, so your personal target is likely to be a little different than our "approximate" target level.
