I have ready the thread on SLAMing so I have a very *basic* idea of what it is. I have been searching the internet on basic saltwater pool chemistry and site after site said that ALL pools, including those with SWG, have to be shocked "regularly" - about once a week in the warm, summer months when pool use is high. That sounds like A LOT of shocking.
And some sites are saying that SWG are actually more expensive and harder to maintain than a regular chlorine pool that "you just put tabs in."
Are these just examples of bad pool care tips bc it has me a bit apprehensive at the thought of 1) shocking the pool that often and 2) that I made a mistake with the SWG and sand filter.
