    End of Slam questions?

    Hi Guy's 'n' Girls,

    Just coming to the end of a 5 day Slam, OCLT last night/this morning was FC 0.5-1ppm and CC 0.5ppm, but water still very slightly 'opaque' ( 7am). Not quite as 'Sparkling' as I would like, so decided to continue for another day. Now @ 2pm water looks really clear and sparkling (finally), but will continue and check again over night with a full set of tests (TF100) in the morning.

    Now the questions, I'm running out of time '"State side", three days left and still have my SWG to commision, Can I add my salt now whilst the FC is dropping? also how accurate will the CYA test be with the raised FC levels ( so I can adjust to the required for the SWG).

    Thanks.

    You can add salt whenever you think you're done backwashing the filter every few hours. While FC is dropping post-SLAM is an ideal time, because it needs to dissolve and mix for 24 hours before you turn on the SWG. The CYA test is unaffected by FC levels. Have you read about Diamond Day? Post 5

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    No reason not to add salt anytime now. CYA test is not related to FC levels whatsoever.

    Thanks for the quick replies. Diamond day! now I just need to fly the Grand Children over to mix the salt LOL, or may be I'll just tell the wife there's diamonds in the pool.
