    Should I run the Polaris while SLAMing?

    I'm in the process of SLAMing and there is no more green stuff in the pool. Everything is now just murky and there is dull grey sediment on the bottom of the pool. Should I be running my Polaris while SLAMing to keep the water churned up or should I let everything settle and vacuum?

    It is best not to put the Polaris in the pool while SLAMing. If vacuuming looks to be important you could manually vacuum, or wait until SLAMing is complete.

    Thanks. I will carry on with the SLAMing and stick to vacuuming.
