    Chlorine holding during SLAM

    No skimmer. I had to remove it last year because it kept malfunctioning and was the reason behind the air in my pump etc. or I assume it was because once I removed it all was well.

    Chlorine holding during SLAM

    started my SLAM. I feel as if I’m a SLAM champion after last year, what a hot mess that was. This year I had so many things going for me, aside from the green pool. But seriously, I didn’t even have tadpoles this year! Or mounds and mounds of pinestraw hiding at the bottom of the pool. This will...

    SLAM Gone Wrong?

    I totally feel you on this one 😂 During my SLAM I was so obsessed with the pool and the brushing/vacuuming etc on my days off I didn’t do anything but fool with the pool.

    Doing SLAM on algae

    Is your CYA test withthe tube and black dot? >.4 doesn’t give much of a result. For the SLAM process to work, you have to know your CYA. For example if your CYA is 50, your SLAM FC target is 20. You will need to add enough liquid chlorine to bring it up to 20 at least 3 times a day, more if...

    mustard algae and poor circulation. please help!!

    The problem with your results are, pool store testing is notoriously inaccurate. Really, it’s anybodys guess what your numbers really are. So it’s hard to give advice on numbers that are statistically wrong.

    July and have yet to swim!

    With a cya of 35 you will round up to 40, which brings FC level up to 16 for slam
