Let me start by saying i have learned a ton of info here in less than a week of owning my first pool. I knew nothing before last week and feel pretty well equipped now to get started. So i went to the pool store and converted to a SWCG(pentair IC60) and had to SLAM to remove the algae. They told me what to do and i did as directed. Then i found your site. Before slamming they confirmed PH was good but water still needed to be balanced so 175$ later i walked out with 4 buckets of chemicals and 8 jugs of shock(bleach). I attached two pics here of before and after. I slammed sunday afternoon and have been vacuuming/brushing 1-2x day since work has been getting in the way. WAter in shallow end seems crystal clear but the deep end still seems like there is algae present. How long does the water stay in SLAM state? Do i need to SLAM again? My guess is yes or can i use the SWG boost to keep it in SLAM ? My TF-100 comes tomorrow so i assume i will be testing immediately after getting the kit but should i balance the water now or wait until everything is 100% clear and should i have water tested again by pool store or should i just wait for TF-100?
