I'm getting ready to open the pool and was wondering if I should adjust the CYA up to around 50 prior to SLAM or just leave it at 20 until after SLAM. Thanks.

As per the SLAM Process, add CYA to attain 30 ppm in your water. While that is dissolving, start the SLAM based on the level of CYA you will have once all the powder is dissolved.
