Test Results after SLAM


Oct 17, 2017
Driftwood, TX
So I just completed my first SLAM after noticing small amounts of algae were developing in some areas. Water has always been clear looking. I used trichlor pucks the first year of my new pool and watched as the CYA level slowly climbed to around 70. I switched to liquid chlorine and the CYA has dropped to around 60. I was keeping the chlorine level around the minimum to low end of the CYA chart, and it must have gone below because I think I was just keeping the algae at bay right below the visible level.

So after SLAM, which only took 2 days to pass OCLT, I am now watching the chlorine level slowly drift back down.

Looking for comments on current test results:

FC - 13.5

CC - 0

pH - 7.4

TA - 70

CH - 450

CYA - 60
