    dirt and a greenish tint

    no, it passed t he test but now wednesday. it went BACK to being greenish. as a matter of fact its worse for some reason. I didn't know my pump wasn't running 24/7. The display is hard to read and I now know the driver needs replaced. for example, this morning I measured the fC at over 18 and...

    Ok but what does, "maintain the slam process" mean. that doesn't tell me anything. I tested the chlorine just now and its at 21-22. Not to sound stupid or hard to deal with but telling to maintain the slam process doesn't tell me anything specific.
