Followed the Slam procedure a couple weeks back and thought the algae was gone for weeks but now it appears it’s back, FC was low this morning 3.5 instead of 5 so I added bleach and it’s cloudy again like before . Do I Slam again or what next ? Thanks

There is something else that can cause cloudy water, high calcium and high pH. Not as common as cloudy water due to algae though.

Please provide a current set of test results as follows and the the test kit you are using:

FC
CC
pH
TA
CH
CYA

Is liquid chlorine your standard method of chlorination?
