    First time SLAM and very impatient wife!!!

    Feeling that I’m nearing the end of my slam I did a 25 mL test in addition to the 10 mL test and get drastically different results… 25 mL test showed CL of 11.4 and 10 mL test showed CL of 14… Am I doing something wrong? Or should they be that far apart

    I hear you.. I like the 1/2 jug daily... I do have an automatic "puck" feeder that has been turned off since this whole CYA mess started... do you think it would be wise to turn it back on in addition while gone? going to ditch the pucks in the future... unless need to add CYA. Bleach from now on!!!
