Hello!

I just did my first SLAM on my new pool... followed the directions pretty well (I think). Once I passed the overnight test, it took 3 days for my FC to drop to below 10 - I was running at 28 for my CYA of 70. Pool is crystal clean, but my FC is at 9, and my CC is at 1. Shouldn't it be 0? Do I need SLAM again?

Complete readings today:

FC: 9.0
CC: 1.0
pH: 8.0 (already added muriatic to handle this)
TA: 110
CA: 400
CYA: 50

Thanks in advance!

Did the SLAM end up being a success? I’m at 70 cya and started a slam, some people say to partial drain.
Thanks
