Hi, all! I’m new here and really struggling to understand the SLAM process.. I have a 26k gal, AG vinyl pool that went from blue to green overnight after a heavy rain.

I tested today and am at 130 alkalinity, 7.8 pH and almost 0 chlorine. I gave it a dose of muriatic acid and will test again in the morning. So, where and how do I go forward from there? Any info or directions to find that info is greatly appreciated!

Thank you so much! I have a liquid/reagent kit I picked up from Home Depot though I’m not sure of the brand. I’ll try to snag the one you recommended and will go from there!

While you are waiting on your test kit, add 5 ppm FC worth of liquid chlorine / plain bleach to your pool each evening with the pump running. This will replenish the FC lost each day to the sun and also inhibit any algae in the water from growing further.
