I am about to slam pool for mustard algae. I have a PH of 7.8 and a TA of 100. Do I need to get the PH down between 7.2 and 7.5 before I SLAM? Just trying to get the SLAM done before I close for the season.
Thanks

Yes, lower the pH to about 7.2 then perform a regular SLAM Process. Once you are sure you have passed those 3 SLAM criteria, then you can increase the FC to Mustard Algae levels, but only for a 24 hr period. Good luck!

Thanks Texas Spash. I only need about 13oz of MA. Should I mix it with water in a bucket or can I just pour 13oz of MA into pool?
