    Ok not sure if this is correct or not, but I am getting worried. Yesterday my pH was at 7.4ish I just tested with the Aqua Chem and its saying it's 8.2 I just raised the CL level and right now it's reading 20ppm. Should I add any muratic acid to try to bring it in the 7.5 range? TA was 100 CYA I am not testing until Sunday, since I added CYA.

    Re: pH

    High FC (above 10ppm or so) gives false high pH readings.

    I would wait and retest after the FC comes down below 10ppm.

    You're done SLAMing when:
    1)You lose 1ppm or less FC overnight, & 2)You have .5ppm CC's or less, & 3)your water is clear.
