We opened our pool and found a dark green murky mess and got more leaves in it while taking off the cover. We will need to get a leaf net for the fall and spring of next year. Anyway we have been working on SLAMMING the Pool this past week and have been pretty focused on it. Some days better than others due to work schedules. But have tested at the least twice a day and up to 4-5 times on some days. Our pool is now a cloudy blue color so we have made a lot of progress. However I think our pump pressure gauge is broken because it reads below zero, but there is lots of sucking under the skimmer basket and the water return is good. So we think we need a new pressure gauge
Current Levels are:
Ph 7.6 though I thought I have read testing this during SLAM is not accurate so this is the first time I have tested it since we started SLAM
CYA < 30
We started with FC 0
pH of 8
I can't remember what the other 2 numbers were.
We have our CC at 0.5 once, but mostly it has been at 1
We got our pool last July and had some Algae in Aug, and during our attempting to correct it got our CYA up to 60, I also thought I read during SLAM CYA can be inaccurate so I am afraid to raise it because if we get it too high we have to replace water to lower it.
We would appreciate any advice. Thanks
