Decided to perform my first Slam due to some truly stubborn algae growth in the shallow end of my pool and all the way around the edge just below the water line.
CYA is 60, so I set my FC goal for 24 (that really seems high)
CC is 0.5
PH is 7.2
Cleaned and recharged the filter
FC to start was 8 at 1030 am
Consulted PoolMath and added 900 oz 7.85% Bleach
Had to run some errands so I couldn't test again until 1630, FC at 23.4
Added 34 oz bleach
Just read some other threads that said testing FC with the 10ml sample was perfectly fine, wish I'd have known that before I dropped in 117 drops of reagent, lol.
I'm wondering, is it ok to leave the solar blanket on to help keep debris out, and maybe help the chlorine hang around? And should I keep my tab floaters in?
Thanks everyone for all the help on here!
