    Beautiful but cannot balance

    So, I started with TFP pools this year and my pool has never been more beautiful and easy to maintain. I recently was away for a few days and upon returning, I had a little algae forming at the bottom of my pool. The water is not cloudy and is still blue but I decided to SLAM to kill the algae...

    Leaving on vacation

    Hmmm, I will check to see if anyone can help. I do have a puck feeder and the forbidden tablets if that is okay to use while we are gone.

    Leaving on vacation

    Ok, so our pool looks better than it has in the last 4-5 years. Thanks to TFP. We are leaving at the end of this month for 10 days and I am worried that our pool will revert back to its old ways. What can I do to keep this beautiful blue clear TFP pool while I am gone?

    SLAM & algae questions

    Ok, pool is a beautiful blue but still a little cloudy. I assume to keep SLAMming. Also, I have some water bugs, any suggestions to getting rid of these buggers?

    It is a large sand filter. I will get the make & model and add to my signature. If there is anything else I need to add, please remind me.

    SLAM & algae questions

    Ok, well, persistence worked. I can see the bottom of my pool. Water is bluish and clearing daily. While vacuuming yesterday, I noticed the "dirt, algae, whatever" blowing back into the pool via the jet. So I vacuumed to waste instead. Concerned about why that happened and what I should do about it.

    SLAM & algae questions

    Ok, been a couple of weeks now. Water looks much better but not blue and clear. I found a 2-3" cut in my liner. Repaired 2 days ago. Not sure if that was hurting anything besides losing some water. I will test again this evening and post results. Getting frustrated and need help to win this battle.

    SLAM & algae questions

    Oops sorry, I didn't notice the 2 questions asked. I am on City water, typically high chlorine content (never tested it, just can smell it). Pool water pic attached.

    SLAM & algae questions

    Thank you for the quick responses. Using the Pool Math app, I was filling out the SLAM fields and it would not let me enter the FC target any higher than 7 so that is what I was shooting for. So how do I know how much chlorine to add to get to FC = 16?

    SLAM & algae questions

    Using TFP guidelines, we were able to get our pool balanced and beautiful within a few days and opened up for the season. After 2 weeks, cloudiness, then algae. Worked on getting our pH (7.4) and CYA (40) within range and began our first SLAM yesterday. I am using the PoolMath app and following...
