I read another thread that the pool should be SLAMed after a full drain.
I did a full drain in April under that advice of the pool store due to high calcium hardness. At that point, I didn't know of this forum so I filled the pool with the chemicals they recommended me: Instant Pool Conditioner, Scale Free, PhosFree, Muratic Acid, Powder Plus and Pucks (which I no longer use other than Liquid Chlorine)...
Found this forum last month and switched to The TFPC method.
However, I've never SLAMed my pool after the water change. Only "shocked" the pool 2 or 3 times using Powder Plus prior to finding this forum.
My CC is almost always at 0 and never exceeded 0.5 and water looks super clear. So clear that you cannot see the water on a calm night.
Since last month, after finding this site, I've been keeping it balanced as so:
pH 7.5 - 7.8
So, at this point, should I still SLAM my pool? I lose about 1 ppm of FC daily with the solar cover on.
