I am on day 9 of my slam.( no visible algae, just noticed the pool was using more chlorine hsn usual and the swg wasn't keeping up with the demand, oclt at regular chlorine level was 2 to 3) Prior to starting the slam, I was testing at 80/90 for cya (2 weeks prior I was at 40/50, added 45oz of granular stabilizer). So when I started the slam, I was holding the FC at 35. 4 days into the slam, I retested cya and came up around 40/50. I then for giggles, while picking up chlorine, had Leslie's test it. They came up with cya of 50, then for even more laughs, I used a test strip and it came out 35-50. I know cya can be consumed in some instances, but can this much be consumed in a matter of days? I have since brought my chlorine down to around 28 ( I know it should be 20 for Cya of 50), but I just want this slam done. I had a 1.5 fc loss Wednesday night, but then last night it went back up to 2.5 loss. Am I doing this right? FC still at 28
FYI: I am using a Tf-100
