    My water is crystal clear. It was never cloudy, even after the exchange. No algae. So I’m clear to do the overnight chlorine loss test?

    Yea, lesson learned lol. Quick question. I shocked to the SLAM level. It says to test and adjust frequently. So say I test and it’s at X amount. Do I adjust (add) by adding to the original SLAM level? Or to the ideal level? Seems if I adjust to original SLAM level, it’s a never ending cycle.....

    Note to self. First time using liquid chlorine. Don’t wear a nice shirt. Splash back. Slammed the recommended amount.

    Was hoping to get cya to 40 ish. But I’ll take it for sure. It’s also early. After more filtration and combining of new water with old, I think it may change. What’s next step? SLAM? And add calcium? In what order?

    Jesus. No wonder my cya skyrocketed in less than a year. My pool was finished last August.

    I bought 20 gallons of liquid chlorine at Home Depot while buying the pump. Is it ok to keep 1 or 2 tabs in my chlorinator to supplement the liquid chlorine? If so, is there a way of telling at what rate my cya will rise based on those tabs?

    I just ran the math on how much it’ll cost in water to fill 8,000 gallons. I was shocked to see it’ll be $26.40. Add a utility pump that cost $50 and I wonder why everybody doesn’t do this method when numbers get crazy instead of spending hundreds in chemicals. Or am I missing something?
