No, hang the sock with CYA and then immediately proceed to SLAM. The backwashing prohibition is only if you add the CYA directly into the skimmer where it will then be trapped in the filter. If you let the CYA dissolve out of a sock there is nowhere for it to get trapped.Do I have to wait 48 hours to slam pool since I have to raise my cya to 30? Since I cant back wash or anything like that
Just do things when you are able to. If you can raise the chlorine level now to stop it from getting worse that would be ideal, and then you can go about removing any debris and vacuuming later on. Just don't run your pump if your baskets are full or the cartridge needs to be cleaned.Should I vacuum first or does that not matter when doing all of this? Or can I vacuum tomorrow after I've been slamming?
