    Crepe Myrtle flowers and green pool

    Great. Thanks everyone. Can you adjust the CYA while slamming? Is that test accurate with SLAM level FC? Sincerely, Dave.

    Crepe Myrtle flowers and green pool

    Thanks for the quick reply, Mr. TX. Rat's! I did forget to bring the pH down before raising the FC to 12. Is that going to be an issue? I know the pH test isn't reliable now that the FC is high. Can you adjust the CYA while slamming? Is that test accurate with SLAM level FC? Sincerely, Dave.

    Hey there. Been having a lot of success using the recommendations from this site. Basically a gallon of chlorinating liquid every other day and a little muriatic acid when needed. Literally had a sparkling pool all summer. We've been going to the lake every weekend and I add a little extra...

    Water slightly cloudy

    Filter pressure 10 psi. Right we're it's normally. Won't have a chance to do the OCLT for a couple days. I added a couple gallons of bleach. We'll see if that does anything. Thanks again, Dave.

    Water slightly cloudy

    Thanks for the quick response. No, No, No. No use, did not brush, and literally...no wind. This has been the first time all year where the water didn't look crystal clear. Sincerely, Dave.

    Water slightly cloudy

    Thanks everyone for all the help this year. I've had a super easy time keeping the pool looking great with just adding bleach and MA occasionally. Today the pool was slightly cloudy. Here are my numbers: FC - 6 PH - 7.8 TA - 50 CH - 48 CYA - 30 ​Any ideas? Sincerely, Dave.

    Hello from Atlanta GA...and of course I have questions... :)

    Thanks so much everyone. The SLAM went great. Took longer than I expected but I wasn't able to keep at it every day - all day to maintain the correct shock level (LIFE...know what I mean?). But got there in the end and now I'm just maintaining. I found it's only around a quart a day to do...

    Hello from Atlanta GA...and of course I have questions... :)

    Again, Hello from Atlanta, GA. I'm new to the forum and this is my first post. I've grown tired of paying the pool guy hundreds of $$$ every fall for chemicals so that I can open my pool in the spring and be happy. The past 3 years I have not been happy...AND THE POOL GUY IS MY WIFES...
