Slamming works!!!

Approaching 1 month sinceI slammed. Have maintained FC between 2 and 6 . Gone over 6 a few times, Kissed 2 a few times but NO, ZERO Algae!!! Amazing. I do run all auxiliaries For at least 15 minutes once per day as per the pic to ensure all water gets circulated. Its pretty easy with the programmable control panel.

No more ‘magic’ addictives from the pool store. Thanks Trouble Free Pools!!75EADDCC-A77C-482A-9B0C-18E75C937386.jpeg

Nice job, but don't be afraid of chlorine. When you add liquid chlorine, aim for the max ppm for your CYA level. Your water will feel no different, but you will have a much larger safety margin.

As NewDude mentions you're risking things with those low chlorine levels at times.... up the FC, friend :)
