If that was plain language, it waS a different one!“Higher FC levels will oxidize contaminates more quickly, but levels that are too high can cause damage to the pool or the pool equipment. Recommended shock levels are designed to break down contaminates reasonably quickly while posing minimal risk to the pool.”
Here’s some more info on the fc/cya relationship
I don’t know the details of your moderation. That said, it may have been the context of your question or that it was asked in a thread that ended up being an off topic question. If you ask a specific question “does Using bleach to SLAM cause issues with equipment and liners” that wouldn’t be cause for moderation. in short, it doesn’t matter which product you used to increase the FC as long as you understand the consequences. Using bleach isn’t any more or less harmful than anything else. The benefit of using bleach or liquid chlorine is that it doesn’t add any unwanted chemicals.I was moderated for inquiring why someone stated slamming with bleach harms liners/ equipment. I still want to know, I think that was the purpose of the OP.
Ive read its safe to swim up to slam levels, at what level is it unsafe, and how unsafe is it and why?!
We got the rains too Im just East in Northern NB. Plus In a noob and we had a few parties with the Covid restrictions final lifting.I'm in Canada... I managed to get a Taylor kit... please check my thread.
I can't stress what a difference maker it has been. Toronto had three days of rain a few weeks ago and my pool went cloudy. I had to slam mid season...... thank god I had the kit.
Exactly this. The algae dies and appears as dust when you brush it. Vacuum that up. Make sure you are able to back wash a bit if the pressure on your filter changes.The “dirt” is likely still algae that accumulates on the bottom. Keep up the SLAM process as best as you can.
I havent pulled the stairs, I will. Will be good practice before closing time. Its going on day 7 since trouble began, looking a lot better tonight! Pool guy was no show this afternoon, thankfully I have TFP!Not sure if u have pulled those steps & given them a good scrub but u should- they could likely be a big source of algae- also check/scrub all skimmer throats & weirs, pool lights, drain covers etc.
