Were you adding chlorine all week in the rain to maintain that FC level? Or is that after is stopped raining and you added some chlorine?

Agree that the SLAM Process is what you need.

You need to follow the SLAM Process.

Lower your pH to 7.2 with muriatic acid and follow the SLAM level FC for your CYA - FC/CYA Chart

Hi, Yes, we were adding chlorine all week in the rain that’s why we were shocked. We are starting the Slam today, had to get more supplies. Thank you for getting in touch, really appreciate your help.

If you are seeing algae growth, then you need to follow the SLAM process again. You passed the 3 tests to stop before?
Did you ever let the FC drop below the minimum for your CYA?
