I am in the middle of doing the SLAM process. My pool was not green, just a very cloudy blue with a whitish organic growth on the pool light and steps.
I bought one of those Scum balls because I noticed an oily looking residue on the water surface. Is it okay to add the scum ball to my skimmer mid SLAM or should I wait until water clears and I pass the overnight test?
I am adding 3 gallons of 12% liquid chlorine for the past 4 days. Is this normal and if so, about how much longer will I need to do this? My chlorine levels are about the same every morning so far at about FC 1 CC 3 TC 4
I also have 2 water spout features. Should I be running them during the day?
I also have an auto cover. Open or closed at night during this process and in general? I have been keeping it closed because we have lots of trees in the neighborhood and it gets a lot of debris when left open.
If you would like any additional information please assume I have no idea and let me know how to get that information for you.
