SLAM is an acronym..should really be S.L.A.M. It stands for Shock Level And Maintain. If you need to SLAM, you bring your water up to Shock Level (40% of your CYA as shown on that chart). And then Maintain that level until you meet all of the requirements to end it.
And yes, as Marty says...
Sorry, re-read your post. Yes, you’re right, it’s either filtering/chlorinating the pool or spa.
My spa is 5% the volume of my pool. I don’t need to run my IC60 very long to produce enough ppm for the spa.
I’m just suggesting the OP run in SPA mode long enough to produce enough chlorine...
Can’t he have his SWG chlorinate while in spa mode (at a lower %). The water will get filtered and chlorinated. I do have a spillover run for 30 mins a day, but I can also chlorinate while in spa-only mode.
I’m having some siding work done on the house and there are 2 nails in my pool I can get out. My robot can’t either.
So...my plan is to run the heater all night (current water temp is 56) and go in tomorrow and get them out of the shallow end.
They fell in today...is waiting until tomorrow...
Here’s some reading for you:
7.5 is likely too low, but you’ll need to know your CYA level.
How are you testing your water?
If it’s not too late, consider IntelliCenter instead of Intellitouch. Intellicenter is Pentair’s latest automation product, and should be about the same price. You wouldn’t buy a 10-year old iPhone, no reason to buy the old automation product.
