    Green pool questions about SLAM

    CYA at about 40 now, it's a bit hard to tell with that dot test. pH is 7.3. FC dropped to 8.5 by the the end of the day yesterday. It's definitely drops much slower once I jacked up CYA. Are you saying I can go swimming at that high-ish level of FC?

    Green pool questions about SLAM

    I believe my SLAM is over: FC fell for 0.5 over night, CC is undetectable, water is clear. FC is 13.5. CYA is 30. pH is 7.4 (increased a bit from 7.2 that I had in the beginning of SLAM). TA is 50. TA looks a bit low, should I raise it? The PoolMath says to add 6.8 oz by volume of baking soda...

    Green pool questions about SLAM

    Here comes my CYA - I've poured 3 gallons of Instant Conditioner by Natural Chemistry and I can still see the dot at 30ppm but barely. I am going to add another half a gallon, maybe more, tomorrow as my ideal level is 40-50.

    Green pool questions about SLAM

    I see about FC and CYA. Thanks. I'll find liquid CYA this time, no more messing with sock method - it takes days to dissolve. Oh, I found a small amount of CYA in a sock, is there a way to test if it's CYA? You were asking before if I had any left.

    Green pool questions about SLAM

    I started SLAMing on previous Sat night (06/06) and I've been on it ever since. The water is very clear now, CC is 0.5, yesterday's overnight FC loss was 1.5 so I am getting very close. I've used an insane amount of liquid chlorine. CYA though is still my concern as it's nowhere to be found...

    Green pool questions about SLAM

    So the first 10lb of CYA I bought online, it's In The Swim brand. Picture of it is in my first post on this page from May 14th. Then I bought another 8lb from local Leslie's store, I do not have a picture of it but I can take it tomorrow if necessary. What do I do now? My pool is green the...

    Green pool questions about SLAM

    Nothing is left of CYA, only packaging. So borax might have been in the mix with CYA? The packing does not say there is any borax in it.

    Green pool questions about SLAM

    Definitely cyanuric acid. I posted a pic of it in my first post. pH - not sure if it was expected, but it's been a lot of raining here. So should I lower pH? More concerning, what do I do with CYA? thanks

    Green pool questions about SLAM

    Just tested: pH is 8+, TA is 60. pH is high so I bought a gallon of 31.5% muriatic acid. CYA is In The Swim brand. Why CYA is not showing up on a test?

    Green pool questions about SLAM

    I have dissolved a total of 18lb of CYA but I can still see the dot. I use sock method, pump is running non-stop and etc... This is frustrating. Do you know where does CYA go?

    Drain cover/assembly broken in the spa (that spillsover into pool)

    I've just been able to get back to my spa as it's been raining around here non-stop. I unscrewed the second cover (duh) and ordered the same one from amazon - it's hayward and it fits very well over the ring. I followed the way they do it in the video however the hole in the plaster for one of...

    The plastic anchors - just the plastic anchors I use to hang pictures on the wall? About two inches?

    Green pool questions about SLAM

    It was 5ppm before I started adding stabilizer, supposedly it's 33 ppm now but it does not look like it to me. Yes, I use sock method and it took 48 hours for it to dissolve completely. What test do you use for CYA?

    Green pool questions about SLAM

    I added a total of 8.5 lb of stabilizer (7.5 then another pound) but CYA level is nowhere to be seen. Can you take a look at the pics. I follow the instructions, they are not even that difficutl for CYA test. Did I underestimate the size of the pool? I would expect the test mix would be...

    Drain cover/assembly broken in the spa (that spillsover into pool)

    Aha now I got it about the drain pipe being off-center of the ring so the adapter covers the pipe. Thanks for the video too. Question, is it another, second drain in the spa?

    Drain cover/assembly broken in the spa (that spillsover into pool)

    >> I am surprised that drain worked with the pipe off-center and the adapter plate on the drain cover. I do not know if it worked, I've never used spa drain. I've bought house with pool & spa recently. 1. So I should just leave along the ring (I do not know the name of it) that is on the floor...

    Drain cover/assembly broken in the spa (that spillsover into pool)

    The whole cover/assembly came out in the spa. How do I put it back? Do I drill into plaster and insert new bolts, looks like the old ones were all rusted out. What drill bits do I use for it, and how deep do I drill, and everything else I should know to fix it. There is also a bulge, about an...

    I do not understand how my spa return works

    I see, thx. I was confused about the two returns into spa, I'll prob just keep fist valve in position one, always. Looks like they did not see the design through from the start, it's not like there is a lack of space. I drained my spa at the moment but I'll test the check valve once I put spa to...

    I do not understand how my spa return works

    I updated attached picture with numbering. All return water to the pool - if i close both spa returns. All return water to the spa - if I close return to pool. then there will be spillover. Return water to the pool and spa for spillover - this is how it is right now. What if I use valve 2 to...
