    Mega-Foam

    Did you rinse it after the ahh-some treatment? Did you run the pumps for 10-15 seconds after you emptied it? It might just be me residual ahh-some left over. I sometimes have to fill it and empty it again. Did you bring it up to slam levels before ahh-some?

    Water Change Out Question

    I'm in the northeast. No way I'm going out to change the water now. I do it in November and then as soon as it warms up.

    What you need to do is slam There's a detailed write up in pool school. But the basics are to test often and keep the fc up to slam levels until you pass an overnight chlorine loss test

    What's funny, is mine is the reverse of yours. I had 1500ppm and had to take it down to 1100ppm. I couldn't get my FC low enough. My next drain and fill I might even try 950ish That info should come with the manual [emoji53]

    Make sure you get some ahh-some for your next drain and fill. Maybe do it twice if you get a lot of yellow gunk the first time.

    With your high cc you should leave it open for a couple hours, if you get a sunny day. It will help burn it off. But it also says you might have something going on. Maybe the SWG is working and the fc is just getting consumed. Keep a close eye on it.

    I'm not great with the calculating, but let's try and work through it "add 0.00013 ounces per gallon to raise the chlorine by 1 ppm" .00013 x 450 gallons = 0.0585 ounces If you want 4 ppm 4 x 0.0585 = 0.234 ounces .234 ounces = 6.5770894 grams That would be for your regular maintenance...
