Hi - just wanted to clarify a few points before SLAMing. I'll be using 8.25% bleach from grocery store. According to Pool Math, I believe I need about 8 64-oz bottles.
Test results this morning using my new TFT100 test kit:
CYA 65-70 (have a hard time reading this test)
Water is clear.
Since the pH is high, do I need to address that before or after SLAM?
Is it ok to add bleach through skimmers? I've read both ways.
I assume I add all 8 bottles at once, then when do I test FC again? Then depending on the results, I add bleach to keep it at shock level for how long?
Regarding the CYA, this is the only test I've had trouble figuring out. If I can still see a shadow of the black dot, does that count? I thought I'd take a sample to the pool store just to compare their CYA results with mine.
Thanks so much for your help.
