    Btw, my pump seems to be losing pressure randomly and it picks back up. When backwashes and clean, the normal pressure hovers around 18 psi. But when it loses pressure, it goes down to 10-12psi and can stay there a while. I see the return seems to give more air bubbles when this happens. Any...

    Oh and the CC seems to be zero or 0.5. The color turned very slightly pink when I was testing.

    So this morning, FC was 30. Just now—around six hours later—it’s at 27ppm. I added a quart of liquid chlorine to bring it up a little. The SWG was running at 100% the whole time but it’s a sunny day and I went into the pool briefly (15-20 min). Do the numbers suggest there is algae in the...

    Will do. I'm home today so I'll be testing shortly again! Thanks!

    Sorry the CYA level is actually at 70. I just decided to test TA this morning which was 90. Isn’t one of the criteria of ending the SLAM when the water is clear? I’m just hoping to get the clear water by maintaining the FC at 28 with the help of the SWG. I have big trees surrounding the pool...

    I see. What if I can’t test the water frequently? I can only test the water once or twice a day due to my work schedule usually. I was hoping the SWG would help maintain the SLAM FC level to kill the algae. The test result from this morning is FC 30 and TA 90. I forgot to test for CC but it...

    The water looked a little clearer today after adding 4 gallons of bleach yesterday. Still cloudy but I can see the bottom a little better. I'm running the SWG 24/7 at 100% now.. I've read on other threads that higher pH can make the water appear less clear.. how much effect does it have on the...

    I think I'll start the SLAM as you recommended.. I've been working at clearing this pool over a month now.. So at my CYA level of 70, I need to bring up the FC to 28.. once the SLAM is done, would I have to wait until the FC level comes down considerably before I can start swimming in it?

    If it’s just the dead algae, is it possible to just scrub and filter it out?

    Ah I see. Thank you I’ll do that. How do I get the water to be clear though? Does this have anything to do with the pH? All the other chemicals are in the TFP recommended range.

    Hi guys. Hope you all had a nice weekend. I was out of town for a few days and I think I might have aerated the water too long. The pH this morning was 8.0. I added muriatic acid to bring it down to 7.4. The SWG has been running on turbo mode 10 hours a day since. The FC level is over 10...

    Great! Now the return is facing way up. How long do I need to do this to see any appreciable rise in pH?

    Thanks for the quick response, Kim! About pH, do you mean just point the return jet upward without adding any chemical to bring up the pH?

    Ok. I did some digging and resetting the outlet inside the home did the trick and now the pump is working. Here’s the test results for the evening. pH 7.0 Salt 3600ppm (Circupool recommends 3500) TA 70 CYA 70 FC 5.5 So I need to bring the pH up (the water was clearer earlier today but now it...
