    I have been SLAMing a while now.

    We have a crazy thunderstorm today. I ran out and checked the FC and CC and the filter is still running but I can't clean it.(Well I could but holding a metal pole in a thunderstorm reaalllllly doesn't seem like a bright idea LOL)

    So what do I do now?

    I am guessing that messed everything up, I did clean out the strainer on the pool filled with more algae causing debris.

    Last night
    FC 16
    CC 1

    This morning(Not sure when the rain started)
    FC13
    CC1

    If it is ok, I'll keep a running log of what is going on.
    I have a 24ft round pool. 52in deep. 14k gallons. It has a sand filter. It is a chlorine pool that we got March, 2016. Above ground!

    No worries. Just continue with the FC shock level. Once the weather clears-up, you can check the filter and clean if necessary. The rain itself won't hinder your SLAM. The most important thing right now is to "Maintain" the SLAM level.

    It's a very good habit to keep a log like you are doing. Good Job!

    What was your CYA level at the beginning of the SLAM?

    Ok, don't know if I can do a night reading as it is hailing and we have high winds and thunderstorms.

    Re: Slam Log

    So I was able to do a night testing. It was 15 CC was .5
    This morning the reading was odd. FC was 12 and CC 0

    We had a crazy amount of rain last night, our pool over flowed. So I am assuming that everything is off. I looked in the pool(Yippee, I am able to see the bottom pretty clearly) and I didn't see much debris.

    Please, please, PUHLEZZZZ tell me this means what I think it means...

    FC 16
    CC 0

    Trying to not scream the house down that I passed the OCLT. If so does that mean that the FC can go down to normal?

    Hmm, you posted FC 12ppm last night, and now post that FC is 16ppm.

    I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but FC does not go up on its own.

    Either one of those tests are wrong, or you added chlorine after the 12ppm reading.

    Yes, sorry, I added chlorine last night to adjust it back up to recommended SLAM level.

    Re: Slam Log

    When doing the OCLT you do not add any chlorine after your last test of the night. If you do, you need to wait about 20-30 minutes and test again. You are looking to see if anything other than the sun is consuming chlorine.
