    I am SLAMMED out....!!

    Hey Hey...

    Can someone please tell me what is the average time for a SLAM?

    I am on day 10. My pool was not that green to begin with.

    I am trying to keep it up to my FC shock level to 35. The lowest it gets to is 22. It seems to be consistently being there.

    I am using my Dolphin to clean it almost constantly and keeping it debris free by skimming it. These helicopters and oak seeds are driving me nuts..... not to mention the crackle 'sacs'!!!

    I feel like I am not doing things right.

    PS. Any suggestions for reusing all the bleach bottles????
    Thanks a bunch....!!

    It took me 13 days to SLAM mine. It was not green either and is much smaller than yours. You just have to be patient. You have been doing great.

    Some take 5 days. Ive seen others take a month.

    Just depends on how diligent you are at keeping FC up and filter filter filter

    10 days is not beyond expectations at all.
