    When am I done with SLAM?

    I may have misunderstood. When I did the CC test it was zero. Is that the number you go by or do you add the FC number to the CC number?

    When am I done with SLAM?

    I never used any non chlorine shock and I did the test twice. If I’m understanding correctly, I was supposed to bring the chlorine level up to 20 and keep it there correct? Now it’s at 14.

    What needs to be balanced before I SLAM?

    I bought a TF100 test kit so I could SLAM to kill algae. My CYA was way too high though so I had drain and refill approximately 70% of my pool. Yes, I still have algae. My water is mostly fresh and untreated now. What do I need to balance, if anything, before I SLAM? I will retest my CYA...

    How do I reduce my CYA levels?

    I have a 30x52 above ground chlorine pool. I have a TF-100 test kit. My CYA showed 120 so I let half my water out, refilled it, let the pump run for 24 hours and retested. My CYA was 95. I repeated the process and my CYA is now at 70. Why didn’t it reduce by half each time I drained it? If...

    Okay. It’s my test strips that show it’s going up and down.

    CYA levels rise every time I shock

    I’m trying to get my water balanced and I’m waiting on a new test kit to come in, in the meantime I’ve noticed that my CYA level is low until I shock my pool. Once I shock, my CYA level reads way too high, but after the shock dissipates, the CYA level is low again. I use liquid pool chlorine...
