Slammed my pool about 10 days ago last week as noticed that it was going cloudy (not green) but more hazy. Also noticed first thing in the morning my FC was at 0 at that time after it was 5 or 6 the night before.

Slam started and passed the OCLT. Water was crystal clear.

Fast forward to today and Pool has drifted down to 12 yesterday after the slam and had a pool party. When I removed cover I noticed it was less crystal clear. Started my SWG yesterday too as FC had drifted down.



Last night once cover was back on, FC was 10.5. Tested this morning and it was 8.5.

Is it normal for the FC to drop overnight like this, especially after a SLAM. This is my first swim season as a first time pool owner.

My results are below.

What type of pool cover do you have?

My guess is your pool cover has algae on it and is introducing algae back into your water after the SLAM Process is over. Your cover needs a good chlorine bath and soak.

Thanks @ajw22 see photo. It’s a solar one.
Best way to soak it. Turn it upside down on pool with a chlorine mix on top?
