    If you have hard water and you had to add a bunch after backwashing, that could account for it.

    You really shouldn't worry about anything but FC & CC until the SLAM is complete. As you've experienced, eradicating algae is a lengthy process. Fixing the rest can be done in a couple hours once the water is clear and FC levels drop back from shock to normal.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
