I'm a little nervous. I'm a little apprehensive. I called my husband for moral support. Now I'm coming to you guys I started the SLAM this morning just about a 1/2 hour ago. Although our water was perfectly clear, the pool is just not holding chlorine. I was adding over a gallon of bleach every day. I did an OCLT on 6/7 and passed, but the next night we didn't pass and the CC = 1, so I figured I needed to bite the bullet and SLAM.
Since our CYA = 60, I am taking it to a SLAM level of 24. Prior to starting our pH was 7.5. I will check the FC before I leave for work at 12:30, but then won't be able to check it again until I get home after 9pm. So, I may not make a lot of progress today since I won't be home to babysit the pool for the better part of the day, but I'll keep you posted.
I keep thinking in the back of my mind "the people at the pool store/PB wouldn't approve of this and if I ruin something, it's going to be my fault." So, wish me luck!
