The number 1 reason people have trouble with the SLAM Process is they take shortcuts and don't follow it step by step. Your best chance for success is to SLOW down and be diligent about every step it says.I can lower the ph......I reviewed the slam process but I'm in panic mode and not afraid to admit it. Sorry
Got it....ty for the break downThe number 1 reason people have trouble with the SLAM Process is they take shortcuts and don't follow it step by step. Your best chance for success is to SLOW down and be diligent about every step it says.
That's why I want you to get to a good CYA level and pH before you begin adding chlorine. You also need to brush you pool as often as possible to break up the biofilm on the algae so the chlorine can get to it.
Once you get your pH to 7.2-7.4 and have the CYA sock in the water then begin adding the chlorine.
Going for it now, adjusting ph and cya. Should I bother testing tonight and trying to add some chlorine?You have a choice to make. You can either drain most of the pool (leave 12-18 inches) to get a jump on the algae, or begin the SLAM Process immediately and hope for best results by the weekend. The SLAM may not be over by the weekend, but the water "might" be blue again (perhaps cloudy) to where you can enjoy it. But it's really your call. If you start the SLAM, follow the SLAM Process page to the letter right away for best success.
I hear ya, wife handled all but 3 days and what we left him was what he used....on something lol.A pool that size will need 4-6 cups (32-48oz) of bleach a day. A regular 128oz bottle only holds 16 cups. You said a week away, so that's 7 days. 7x4=28 cups.
Are nearly two bottles of bleach gone, or is one bottle just slightly less full?
