    CC 4x Higher Than FC--->Keeps Climbing

    I'm running low on liquid chlorine, and won't be able to make it to the store till tomorrow probably. I have some Cal. Hypo. in the garage left over from before the switch. If I do run out of liquid, can I continue the SLAM with the powder?

    CC 4x Higher Than FC--->Keeps Climbing

    The CC dropped from their high to 0 a few hours after the first FC raise to 12, but a few hours later than that they went up to around 2. The CC has cycled between 0.5 to 2 in subsequent tests, each test being about 4 hours apart. The pH and TA are also still dropping with every chlorine addition.

    CC 4x Higher Than FC--->Keeps Climbing

    I'll keep SLAMming away! Any tips for preventing the buildup behind the light? Should I just take it out and clean behind it a few times a season, or is there something I can do to prevent it from happening in the first place?

    CC 4x Higher Than FC--->Keeps Climbing

    Update: The SLAM process since Monday hasn't been going to well. The pool has been consuming FC drastically. Overnight, the FC went from 12 ppm down to 2 ppm, Monday night and last night. So this morning after testing, I dug around some other threads. Found one about someones light that was...

    I'm also going to order the TF-100 to have as a second test kit to compare values with. Some of my reagents are running low for the Taylor kit, so I'll just switch over to it fully when they run out.

    Will do! Should I keep a tri-chlor tab in the inline chlorinator or skimmer while slamming to maintain CYA at it's current low level? Or just leave them out of it?

    The pH and TA HAVE been dropping after adding chlorine! Okay, onto something here. So full slam. Maintain FC at 12 until CC hits zero and no FC loss overnight, correct?

    CC 4x Higher Than FC--->Keeps Climbing

    Thank you. I have already watched that and read the guide, but I am guessing I am doing something wrong or missed something while reading based off of my results. I'm a mech engineer and tend to overthink/complicate things. Some questions I have that the video and guide left me wondering: When...

    CC 4x Higher Than FC--->Keeps Climbing

    Skimmer is clean, pump basket is clean, floors and walls are squeaky clean. At some point in the past few weeks as I've noticed the CYA getting lower, I'd drop a tri-chlor tab in the basket to help bring it up. Haven't done that in over 2 weeks for sure though, as I cleaned the garage then and...

    CC 4x Higher Than FC--->Keeps Climbing

    1. It was hovering around 50-60 ppm. Lots of rain, making the switch to non-trichlor, and time I suppose have lowered it perhaps. 2. No it has just gradually been tapering down to about where it is now (20-30, 30 if rounding up) and holding. 3. I was using the forbidden "Leslies perfect...

    CC 4x Higher Than FC--->Keeps Climbing

    1. The water is clear, ever so cloudy in the deepest portion, but can still make out a coin on the bottom. 2. No. I am aware that the FC/CC test is inaccurate if done to slowly. So I test for CC directly after FC, and the whole test is complete within a timed 3 minutes from the point that the...

    CC 4x Higher Than FC--->Keeps Climbing

    1. The Taylor Complete kit, 2006 I believe. Also the AquaChek 551236 Test strips to have a second data point. The strips rarely deviate +-10% of the Taylor kit. 2. I smell no chlorine at all.

    Hello all, Brand new to the Forum! I have a 12000 gal in-ground vinyl lined liq bleach chlorinated pool. I switched to liq bleach from inline tri-chlor tabs about 2 months ago after reading through the Pool School. At first the switch was great. Within the past 2 weeks though, my CC keeps...
