Ok so the pool looks awesome.... except for the one line/stain that I think is algae. I am still maintaining SLAM. Brushing at least twice a day but this seems like one stubborn stain. I posted a couple of pics trying to show the stain. it’s hard to see in the photos so I circled it. Is it possible this is something other than algae? I also added one pic so y’all can see how beautiful the pool sparkles now.

Keep the SLAM up until you pass the three exit criteria.

Once you exit the SLAM and go back to normal water chemistry I would maintain a higher then normal FC for a while and see if the stain lines fade over time. Once you get to the exit we can discuss specific FC levels.

That could be bleed threw from behind have you rubbed it with your hand to see if you can feel the wall behind the liner, and worms lol yep, pass the slam as other stated.
Dont be to hard on others that said it would not work. Most have never tried and listen to the pro help at the pool store. (everyone has a story about the pool store). Mine was looking for a return plate. guy didnt even know what it was. see image below,....

No I have not felt the wall behind the liner yet... Its a little further down than I can reach from the deck, and with water temp hovering between 62-64 I have not wanted to take a dip yet...lol, but just so I know when I do what would I be feeling for? I have just gotten a water sample out of the pool. I am fixing to test to see if I passed the overnight SLAM test.

I would go for a second OCLT just to be on the safe side.
