I just watched the YouTube video about algae and SLAM process and had a question. I feel more comfortable just keeping a higher FC level in my pool, I usually try to keep it around 8-10ppm. Is this a bad thing or not recommended? I like the reassurance of 1. Just having the higher strength FC and 2. If something were to go bad like my cell, a higher level may give me a little more time if I didn’t catch it right away. Thanks

No issue at all. Do remember that pH testing with FC above 10 ppm is not valid.

Thanks for that. I posted a question in the “Everything Else” forum topic about my coping/waterline tile grout. I was hoping you’d see it. Can you take a look at it for me when you get a chance and give me some advice? Thanks and great video about algae/slam. You guys are awesome and as always we appreciate it.
