Keep in mind, the SLAM Process isn't a one-time addition of chlorine. You add to get to SLAM level, which is Shock Level (SL) in SLAM, and then And Maintain (AM) to keep it at that level. Test as often as you can, up to once every 30 minutes, and each test you add enough to get back to SLAM level. Brush and vacuum often. :)

Ok...I passed all the criteria to be done with the slam! I’m happy about that! Since the chlorine is good now, I thought I better do all the tests in my kit and see where I’m at with the other stuff

Idk what happened to the TA and CH they were 70 and 120 when I started?? Am I doing these tests wrong? FC was 10 this morning, we had the Kreepy in the pool all night and backwashed twice today and it was 191degrees, so I guess that’s why the FC went down. We are adding water now, and I guess a little more bleach...idk what to do about the other stuff
