I'm in the middle of a SLAM right now...
I've read through, and really enjoy reading all of the "Green to Glistening" threads on here. And I have read the SLAM procedure.
My question is...
In the SLAM procedure it says add chemicals to bring the chlorine level up to SLAM check and add as needed
In the threads I've read several times that once the chlorine level drops 2ish (very scientific and accurate I know!) ppm below the Shock level then it severely looses it's effectiveness to rid the pool of the nasties.
Would it not be better to shoot a little high on the chlorine level 3-5ppm or so, maybe a little higher depending on how fast it's depleted, so that the level doesn't drop below Shock level before you "rinse & repeat"?
I know that too high chlorine level can have a negative effect on equipment, but at what level does that occur?
